Re: "N" Connector Question

They are for tie wires to keep them from unscrewing themselves in 
high vibration environments like rocket launches and high speed 
aircraft.  This was a concern since the original design was limited 
to "finger tight" torque limits.

It is not so much a concern with the lower mass and torque wrench 
capability of an SMA for example.
