Features and Benefits
• Dependable wing nuts • Bright zinc plated
• Ideal for finger tightening
Able to fit threaded screws and rods just as effectively as standard nuts, wingnuts have an advantage in that they don’t require any special tools to apply. With large winglike shapes on the nut, finger tightening takes little effort. This is ideal for toolless application, where speed and convenience are a concern, or for when frequent adjustment is required.
They are generally easier to adjust than a thumbnut, but have the disadvantage that the wings can stick out and take up more space.
In any job that requires materials or panels to be fastened together, a wingnut is a convenient alternative to standards nuts, bolts and fasteners. It is commonly used in;
• Machine tools such as presses and clamps
