Standard Hex Nuts


Standard Hex Nuts
Hex nuts have a six-sided hexagonal shape so that a wrench or socket can be slid over the nut for tightening and loosening. Hexagon nuts are the most common type of fastening nut because they can accessed from many different angles, even in tight spots. Hex nuts can be found in almost any size imaginable from tiny nuts that can be used in jewelry to giant nuts that can be used to anchor a bridge and everything in between.

Essentra Components has a large selection of standard hex nuts in nylon, steel, alloy steel, carbon steel and stainless steel. We offer imperial sizes ranging from 3/16 - 1-5/8 inches and metric sizes from 7mm to 36mm. We have thread types ranging from extra fine to coarse.
