What are Nuts?


Nuts are a widely-used internally threaded retaining device, generally used to securely fasten a threaded screw against a target housing. Nuts are available in a number of varieties, from hexagon and square nuts, to more specialist Cage Nuts and Tee Nuts.

Nuts and Bolts are commonly used together to create a fastening which can be secured and adjusted from both sides. A very common Nut and Bolt configuration is Hexagon Nuts used alongside Hexagon Bolts.

For help in identifying the thread type of a Nut or associated Screw, please see Accu's Thread Gauges range.

Hexagon Nuts

Hexagon Nuts are one of the most common Nuts in Accu's range. These components are hexagonal in shape, allowing for adjustment with a wrench, or even by hand. Hexagonal Nuts are very basic 

Fine Pitch Threaded Nuts

Fine Pitch Hexagon Nuts are ideal for applications requiring increased strength and reduced misalignment. Finer threads have greater point-to-point surface contact, and create stronger fastenings by utilising a greater number of threads within the same threaded length. Thin Fine Pitch Hexagon Nuts are also available.
