The Nuts and Bolts of Left Hand Hex Nuts

Left hand nuts are left hand threaded. This is opposite to standard nuts which use a right hand thread. Left-hand must be installed by turning them in a counterclockwise direction to tighten. 

Left hand nuts are used when the screw may be subject to a counterclockwise force or torque. In other words, if a right-hand threaded screw in that position would become unscrewed, you would need to use a left hand threaded nut and bolt. 

Use left hand hex nuts with any type of left hand threaded rod, bolt, or screw. Left hand nut size refers to its thread diameter. Two families of left hand hex nuts include hex and heavy hex:

  • Hex nut: for general purpose, sizes range from 1/4" to 2"
  • Heavy hex: offers strength from increased thread engagement, added thickness, extra-wide bearing surface
