What Exactly Is Stainless Steel Safety Wire? 

Stainless Steel safety wire is also known as "locking wire" is a form of a secure locking device which prevents fasteners from loosening or falling from due to vibrations and other forces. The wire itself applies tension and holds objects in place when twisted around itself. Then it's attached to the fastener then secured on one end and an anchor point. Such as when the wire passes through a small hole on a fastener, then looped back upon itself and then twisted. The wire itself will remain twisted instead of unraveling. Therefore, acting as a fixed loop and will not back out. Simply put its a positive locking device mechanism that prevents fasteners from falling out of place.
