    Each valve spring has two lock that hold it in place top the valve. Depending on the retainer, different locks are needed. In most cases where a different lock is necessary the springs will most likely include new locks. Factory retainers and most basic aftermarket ls springs use 7 degree locks.

    The locks are like a two piece wedge and the angle of the wedge or locks is measured in degrees. I tougher the springs and keepers the larger the angle so many high performance springs come with 10 degree locks for added strength at higher RPM's
