The lock washer is the second from the left.

Are you sure? I honestly thought it would have been the 2nd from the right? Hence the word lock? It would lock into something??

I dont know.. any second opinions?

I guess all three on the right can be considered lock washers, but the ones Im most used to working with are the type thats second from the left.

2nd from the left is most common at least. it keeps nuts from undoing themselves, it doesnt actually lock itself. they are or should be on your rimlock.

They are all lock washers except for the one all the way on the left. The second from the left (split or spring washer) is the most commonly used.
