Nut fasteners are used opposite of a mating bolt. This stacks a number of parts together securely. Because the threats on the nuts and bolts have friction, they are held together with stretching and compression when the parts move. If your company must secure items, this is one way to do so. If your machines use vibrations or rotations you can still use nut fasteners. The nut fasteners may be locked into place with locking mechanisms.
The most common shape for nut fasteners is a hexagon. This makes it easier to remove the fastener with a tool such as a screwdriver. It gives you six sides and six angles to approach, making it easier to get a good grip on the hardware.
When you select a nut fastener and bolts, you must buy matching pieces. If you have a fastener with an ISO of 10, for instance, you must use a bolt with the same ISO to prevent stripping.
There are many types of nut fasteners, including the acorn nut, clip-on nut, cage nut, barrel nut, lug nut, split nut, Allen nut, panel nut, and others.
