Wing Nuts Details

What’s great about wing nuts, also called butterfly nuts, or wing bolts is that because of the two “wings” on either side of the nut, there’s no need to use a tool when tightening or loosening. There are variations in the design of wings, and they are typically made of steel, brass, zinc alloy, or nylon. A variety of sizes to fit most machine screws. If you don’t mind using a tool to tighten nuts on bolts, we’ve got a wide selection of hex nuts and lock nuts, too.A wing nut enables easy tightening and removal by hand. Use wingnuts to secure an access panel, marine hardware, or in other situations where handling a wrench is inconvenient.
