This eliminates not only the sideways motion that causes vibrational loosening, but it also distributes the threaded joint's load throughout all engaged threads.
Any sideways movement in the conventional threaded hole reduces locking friction between the thread flanks, and concomitantly, the tension, or load force, in the male fastener generates self-loosening rotational movement.
Traditional threaded fasteners suffer severe limitations wherever shock, vibration, or sustained loading exist.
