Turn-of-nut

Sometimes used to describe the general rotation of the nut (or bolt head) as the fastener is tightened.  More often used to define a particular tightening procedure in which a fastener is first tightened with a preselected torque, and is then tightened further by giving the nut an additional, measured, turn such as “three flats” (180°).
