Aerospace fasteners generally refer to hardware fasteners specifically designed to withstand the environmental conditions encountered in aerospace applications.
Automotive fasteners are hardware usually made of metal or plastic designed for use in cars and trucks.
An externally threaded fastener designed for insertion through holes in assembled parts, tightened or released by torquing a nut.
Hook & Loop Fasteners
Hook and Loop fasteners are commonly known as velcro, consisting of two lined fabrics. One featuring tiny hooks and the other with smaller loops.
Fasteners used for a wide range of insulation applications, including: cooling/heating ductwork, residential/commercial walls/ceilings, bulkheads, ship hulls, etc.
Inserts are fastener object placed in a hole to attach another fastener such as a bolt or screw.
These fasteners are utilized in a variety of marine applications, including: insulation, weather proofing, outboard motors, aquatic/boat recreation centers, etc.
A nut is a type of hardware fastener with a threaded hole. Nuts are almost always used with a mating bolt to fasten parts together.
Fasteners constructed from nylon, a highly resilient, synthetic polymer that is commonly used in general, electronic, marine, and aerospace applications.
These fasteners only require a quarter-turn to open the joint, making them ideally suited for applications involving frequent/fast access.
Quick Release Fasteners
Quick release fasteners are designed for time efficient repetitive attachment and removal often times with locking collars or other similar means.
Rivets are permanent mechanical fasteners with a head on one end and a buckled tailed created on installation.
A screw is essentially a bolt with a pointed end so that it is capable of forming its own hole.
Self Locking Fasteners
Self locking fasteners are designed primarily to resist loosening from vibration and other external forces.
Sheet Metal Fasteners
Sheet metal fasteners are typically used for binding sheet metal to fiberglass or wood materials.
Snap fasteners most commonly consist of a pair of interlocking discs most frequently used on clothing.
Stainless Steel Fasteners
Fasteners constructed from stainless steel: a rust, corrosion, and stain-resistant material that is commonly found in military, aerospace, commercial, and OEM applications.
A washer is a thin disk-shaped plate with a hole in the middle that is used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a screw or nut.
