Wing Nuts, commonly known as Butterfly Nuts or a Wingnut, 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 Plastic Wing Nut range features wingnuts that are suitable for imperial and metric threads, including a molded-in locking thread option suitable for applications in need of a higher torque or a more secure assembly.
Material 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.
The metric Kwik Nut is designed to be easily pushed down onto a thread to the desired length, then turned 180 degrees to lock into place. To be removed, it must be unscrewed with a wrench. Made of black nylon, the parts are light-weight and corrosion-resistant.
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 plastic flange nut offer 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.
Jam Nuts, also know as Thin Hex Nuts, are a low-profile type of nut. Typically they are half as tall as a standard nut. It is commonly used as a type of locknut, where it is 'jammed' up against a standard nut to lock the two in place or where a standard nut will not fit. These light-weight nylon versions offer a vibration-, chemical- and corrosion-resistant option to metal variants.
Cap Nuts, also known as a Blind Nut or a Crown Nut, is a nut that has a domed end on one side. The Domed Cap Nut is used to cover exposed threaded stud, rod and bolt ends with a dome-like cap. This offers protection and safety to the fastening assembly, while also creating a finished appearance to the exposed threaded end.
Our range is made up from Hex Cap Dome Nuts that feature a hexagonal nut shape with the dome or cap that encloses external threads. They are offered with or without a molded-in locking thread for applications which require torque for a more secure assembly.
