Nuts are typically made from steel or brass. They come in a variety of different sizes and threads to accommodate different types of projects.
What nuts do we stock?
There’s no one size fits all nut, so it’s important to get the right one for the job. At Select Fasteners in Port Stephens, we have the right nuts no matter what you’re working on – whether this is a conelock, coupling, dome, flanged, hex, nylock or winged nut.
A conelock nut is a type of locking nut that uses a conical shaped washer to secure the nut in place. It’s typically used when high torque is required, as it’s resistant to vibrations and shocks.
At Select Fasteners, our conelock nuts are available in both imperial and metric sizes, meaning that with us, you’ll find the exact fit.
A coupling nut is a type of fastener that is used to join two pieces of metal together. They’re typically made from steel, brass, or aluminium and come in a variety of sizes. Coupling nuts are most commonly used in the automotive and construction industries as they can attach a trailer hitch to a vehicle or connect two metal beams together. They can also secure a pipe or other object to a surface.
As their name suggests, dome nuts have dome-shaped tops. They are often used in electrical applications, as they can provide a good grip and are less likely to loosen over time. They can also be used in place of standard nuts for an extra level of protection against vibration or loosening.
A flanged nut has a flange on one or both ends. This flange helps to keep the nut in place, which makes it ideal for use in applications where vibration or movement is likely to occur. This is because the flanges help to distribute stress evenly across the nut, making them less likely to fail. They’re commonly used in industrial applications and are found in machine screws and bolts.
A hex nut is a type of fastener with a six-sided head and is commonly used with bolts and screws. The flat sides of the head allow for the nut to be tightened or loosened with a wrench. Hex nuts are available in a variety of sizes and finishes.
They’re commonly used in both industrial and household applications due to their simple and easy-to-use design, making them ideal for a wide range of purposes.
A nylock nut is a type of nut that has a nylon collar inserted at the end of the thread. The collar locks into place when the nut is tightened, preventing it from coming loose. Nylock nuts are suitable in environments where vibrations occur, as their design means they’re hard to loosen. They’re also used when there’s a risk of the nut becoming loose over time due to environmental factors such as temperature changes or corrosion.
A winged nut has a protrusion on one side that allows it to be tightened more easily. Wingnuts are commonly used in electrical work, where a quick, tight connection is needed. They can also be found on bicycles and other machines. Wingnuts come in two varieties: right-handed and left-handed. The right-handed variety has the protrusion on the right side, while the left-handed variety has the protrusion on the left side.
