Easier to tighten and covering slightly more surface area than a hex nut, the four-sided square nut is perfect for applications in which wrench slippage is especially problematic. Fewer sides means less instances of over wrenching, or “round over”. Generally, more access space is required to swing the wrench when fastening with square nuts. Pair them with square head bolts. For alternatives, see hex nuts and hex bolts.
