    Proform's Wedge-Locking grade 8 header bolts are designed to keep the bolts from backing out by using a pair of permanently attached special washers.

    So, How Do They Work? When the bolt is torqued to 28+ ft-lbs, the washers' super-hardened external teeth bite into and grip the bottom of the bolt head and the top surface of the header. After being self-locked in this manner, any bolt-loosening rotation is blocked by a wedge-locking action created by the washers' interfacing, matching cams. It's an uphill climb: vibration that might ordinarily loosen the bolt actually increases the wedge-locking tension, securing the bolt even more. Because this simple wedge-locking method uses tension instead of friction, contact with oil actually facilitates the wedge effect. When changing headers, PROFORM Header Bolts can be untightened with a normal wrench, lubricated, and reused. These high quality bolts are sold in complete sets (Enough bolts for both headers).

    66753 - Proform Wedge-Locking Header Bolts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Locking Header Bolts I am amazed on how well these bolts and wedges hold. I have rechecked them after a 100 miles and they are the same tightness as when I installed them.
