Cap Nuts

In stock In production

Cap Nuts are a type of nut with a dome-shaped top. It secures and covers exposed threaded studs, rods, and bolt ends with a dome-like cap. This protects and secures the fastening component while providing a finished appearance to the exposed threaded end. The dome-shaped caps are designed to be readily grabbed and tightened by hand or wrench.

It works as a locking mechanism, preventing the nut from becoming loose due to vibration or movement. Our range includes Hex Cap Dome Nuts, which have a hexagonal nut shape with a dome or cap that encloses exterior threads. They are available with or without a moulded-in locking thread for applications requiring torque for a more secure assembly. Commonly utilised in automotive, industrial, and commercial applications.

Jam Nuts

In stock In production

Plastic jam nuts are essential fastening components used in a wide range of applications to secure threaded connections. These nuts are made from high-quality plastic material, known for its strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion and wear. The main characteristic of plastic jam nuts is their ability to provide a tight and secure grip on threaded rods, bolts, or screws, preventing them from loosening due to vibrations or other external forces. The plastic material used in their construction ensures lightweight and non-conductive properties, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The benefits of plastic jam nuts are numerous. Firstly, they offer excellent resistance to corrosion, making them ideal for use in environments where exposure to moisture or chemicals may occur. Additionally, plastic jam nuts are non-magnetic and non-conductive, making them suitable - for applications where electrical conductivity is a concern. The lightweight nature of these nuts makes them easy to handle and install, reducing both time and effort required for fastening operations. Moreover, plastic jam nuts are cost-effective alternatives to metal nuts, providing similar performance at a lower price point.

Nylon Flange Nuts

In stock In production

Flange Nuts feature a wide flange at one end, offering a combined washer function. This design provides even distribution of the nut over the component being secured. Thus reducing the risk of damage, with less likelihood of loosening caused by an uneven surface.

Our range is made of natural Nylon 6/6, with a UL94 V2 flame resistance. We have a choice of styles including imperial and metric Hex Flange Nuts, and Self-Threading Lock Nuts. These lock nuts are designed for use with steel bolts. Threads are created when assembled to ensure a secure fit.

  • Ideal for applications with vibration and movement
  • Resistant to corrosion, oil, abrasion and most chemicals.

Nylon Grommet Nuts

In stock In production

Grommet Nuts provide a low cost positive connection to thin gage materials, like sheet metal as well PCB applications, as an alternative to using a standard nut. Our range is made from Nylon 6/6 are natural in appearance and have a UL94 V-2 flame resistance rating.

Features Closed Grommet Nuts, and Square Head Grommet Nuts that are suitable for round or square holes. Insulates areas of assembly from electrical and thermal transfer. Provides corrosion and vibration resistance and mount with a self-tapping screw. Eliminates the need for a nut and they are great for blind mounting.

Nylon Hex Nuts

In stock In production

Nylon hex nuts are essential fasteners that provide secure and reliable connections in a wide range of applications. These nuts are made from high-quality nylon material, known for its excellent durability and resistance to corrosion, chemicals, and temperature variations. The hexagonal shape of these nuts enables easy installation and removal using a standard wrench or socket. Nylon hex nuts feature internal threads that ensure a tight and secure fit when paired with compatible bolts or screws.

The main characteristics of nylon hex nuts include their lightweight design, exceptional strength, and resistance to external factors. These nuts offer numerous benefits, such as their non-conductive nature, making them ideal for use in electrical applications to prevent the risk of electrical shorts or sparks. Nylon hex nuts also provide excellent vibration and shock absorption, ensuring a stable and secure connection even in high-stress environments. Additionally, their corrosion resistance makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, such as automotive, construction, and plumbing.

Plastic Thumb Nuts

In stock In production

Thumb Nuts are a type of nut with a knurled outside diameter (surface). This design facilitates manual tightening by hand, and also secures the nut into a handle or cover. They are typically used in applications where the fasteners will be removed regularly.

Made from Natural Nylon 6/6, a strong, tough and durable material that is ideal for connecting elements and other technical components. It has self-lubricating properties, and is resistant to moisture, vapour and salt water. Our range features slotted and non slotted options.

  • Quick and easy
  • Tool-free installation and removal
  • Flame resistance rating is UL94 V2.

Plastic Wing Nuts

In stock In production

Wing Nuts are a type of nut that similarly to Fly Nuts, have two thumb tabs (or wings) on either side of the nuts body. This allows the wing nut to be fastened or removed by hand, with no need for tools. The wings provide additional grip, which makes this process quick and easy.

Our range features wing nuts that are suitable for imperial and metric threads, including a moulded-in locking thread option suitable for applications in need of a higher torque or a more secure assembly.

Materials available include; Natural Nylon 6/6 with a flame resistance rating of UL94 V2 and Transparent (Clear) Copolyester that can be used with transparent Polycarbonate (PC) screws.
