Thumb Nuts


Thumb Nuts
Small nuts that are used in applications requiring frequent adjustments, such as a table saw fence, thumb nuts are tightened and loosened with a thumb and forefinger, eliminating the need to keep a wrench nearby. Knurled thumb nuts are round with a knurled edge for gripping and hex thumb nuts have the traditional 6-sided nut shape that gives you the option of wrench tightening the nut. Thumb nuts can also but turned into a thumbscrew by threading a bolt all the way through the nut.

Essentra offers knurled thumb nuts in nylon, brass and stainless steel, as well as stainless steel hex thumb nuts. Our thread sizes range from 2-56 to 5/16-18 and head diameters as small as 1/4 inch to as large as 1 inch.
