About Wing Nuts
What’s great about wing nuts, or butterfly nuts as they are sometimes called, is that because of the two “wings” on either side of the nut, there’s no need to use a tool when tightening or loosening. There are variations in the design of wings, and they are typically made of steel, brass, zinc alloy or nylon. A variety of sizes to fit most machine screws. If you don’t mind using a tool to tighten nuts on bolts, we’ve got a wide selection of hex nuts and lock nuts, too.
