Bolts are the long metal fasteners designed to pass through holes in two or more surfaces to hold them together. Some bolts can be screwed into place and will stay put without having a backing placed on them, while others require nuts and washers to form a secure hold.
Nuts are round pieces that screw onto the backs of bolts to hold them in place. They are generally used when the bolts are holding two freestanding pieces together. They come in a variety of shapes for use on different surfaces.
Washers are used together with nuts and bolts to form a tighter seal at the point of connection. They are generally used on pipes and other materials that might spring leaks to prevent liquid from seeping out or air from getting in.
