Whether you are building a fence, fastening a door or performing maintenance on an old appliance, you will most likely use some sort of fastener. There are fastener assortments to meet every particular need you may have.
Screws are fasteners that go directly into the items that you are working with to secure them in place. There are a number of different types of screws with a variety of ridge patterns.
Bolts are similar to screws in that they are used to secure pieces, but they require other parts, particularly nuts and washers. As such, bolts are usually used as connector pieces.
Nuts are utilized in conjunction with bolts to help keep them in place. Being that bolts come in different shapes and sizes, so do the nuts. Some even have closures to make them safer on the outside of structures.
Washers serve as a barrier between the bolts and nuts and the product. This barrier creates a safer connection point and helps to preserve the bolt.
Knowing the proper option to choose from the fastener assortment is critical to the proper completion of your task. Even within the aforementioned categories, there are several different options to provide the perfect choice for each job. Learn more about these fasteners from your local contractor.
