have a unique shape with a threaded base and two opposing wings. They can be threaded onto long threaded bolts quickly because they can be spun into place
with flicks of the fingers and then hand tightened with a thumb and forefinger. Wing nuts
were commonly used to hold the air filter cover in place on motors, but are a very popular nut used across many industries, including agriculture, carpentry, medical, and manufacturing. They are used to secure light fixtures, adjust crutches, hold tumbler lids in place, compress rubber plugs for sealing vats, just to name a few.
