|PCT/ZA2014/000054||JACOBS, Johan||JACOBS, Johan|
This invention relates to an accessory for a fastener (10), more specifically, to an accessory for a fastener (10) in the form of a frangible, quick release washer (12, 14) interposable between a bolt-like fastener (i.e. bolts, studs, shanks shafts) (10) and a nut (230) for in use, enabling the controlled release of tension acting between the bolt-like fastener (19) and the nut (230) for the purposes of quickly loosening the nut (230). The accessory (10) includes a pair of load- bearing members (12, 14), a spacer member (16) interposed between the load bearing members (12, 14) and an extraction member (18) connected to the spacer member (16). The spacer member (18) comprises one or more frangible zones defined thereon. In use, application of a pulling force on the extraction member (18) causes the spacer member (16) to fragment at the frangible zones. Further pulling on the fragmented spacer (16) causes extraction thereof from between the load-bearing members (12, 14), thereby enabling displacement of the load-bearing members (12, 14) toward one another.
