The particular apparatus requires fasteners spaced from one another at a particular distance and having a predetermined torque setting. In the past these fasteners required an operator to hold and maintain their torque setting while tightening a locking checknut. The present arrangement eliminates the time involved in locking checknuts, and avoids the use of a Z locknut for each fastener.
