lock nuts

Locknuts have an inner sleeve that traps the thread so that the nuts cannot loosen once in place.

neutral  Tony M: There are many different types of 'lock nuts', and we don't have enough context here to know which, if any, this is. Note the 'sécurisé' could also mean that it is in some way tamper-proof; so only more context can cofnirm.

disagree  Daryo: you are being too specific - here "écrous sécurisés" means only "held firmly in place / prevented from unscrewing" - and there are many ways of achieving that, see ref.
