Wing Nuts

Wing nuts may be tightened or loosened by hand, making them useful fasteners in applications where adjustments or disassembly are frequently required. Wing nuts may be used in furniture, items with interchangeable parts, and drum kits.

Finish

Nickel

This bright decorative finish is used in the automotive industry, on hand tools, in plumbing and lighting fixtures. It has a shiny silver like look. Another benefit of this finish is that it is microscopically smooth decreasing the possibility of bacteria buildup.
Plain

Nothing has been done to this bare metal surface to improve appearance or corrosion resistance, which is very low if the material is steel. Often the surface has been oiled which improves lubricity. This finish is susceptible to rusting and corrosion in exterior environments. This most basic finish can be used when protection is not an issue or indoors.
Zinc

This finish, also know as zinc plating, zinc chromate or dichromate provides good corrosion resistance and is the standard for many hardware fasteners. It is an electroplated zinc layer covered with a chromate post-treatment. The zinc protects the steel from corrosion and the chromate layer protects the zinc from degrading. It is a popular finish because of its protection, value, and ease of coating. Slightly less corrosion resistant than yellow zinc, it is a versatile finish that is best used indoors. This finish should not be used in marine or high salt spray environments.

Grade

2

This grade is from the SAE scale and made of low carbon steel. This classification is low on the grade scale.
18-8

A general designation for the most common and popular stainless steel, (300 Series) referring to the 18% chromium and 8% nickel. It's strength has a range from the middle to low end of the grade scale. All 300 series stainless steel share the ratio of chromium to nickel with varying other elements improving different properties. It has higher corrosion resistance than the 400 series stainless steels and it is non-magnetic.
316

The second most common stainless steel grade, this material is stronger than grade 2, slightly weaker than grade 5,or generally as strong as medium to low carbon steel. It is on the low middle end of the grade scale. It is used in more severe corrosive environments than 304 stainless steel, as such it is used in more industrial settings, like process chemicals, textiles, bleaches, salt water and rubber. It is also used in surgical implants. The DIN/ISO denotation for a very similar grade is A4-70.
A2

A type of the most common stainless steel grade. It is comparable in strength to grade 2 materials, yet slightly weaker and easy to weld. This grade is always metric. The ASTM denotation for very similar grade is 304. The corrosion resistance and ease of fabrication are why this grade is used in food industry machines, appliances, architectural trim and aquatic fasteners.

Material

Brass

Brass is a soft, non-magnetic fastener material that offers corrosion resistance, heat and electrical conductivity, and cosmetic appeal. Brass fasteners may be found in electronics, plumbing, and marine applications.
Die Cast Zinc Alloy

Type C wing nuts, or die cast zinc alloy wing nuts, provide a good level of corrosion resistance. Type C wing nuts are higher in strength than tainless steel wing nuts.
Nylon

Nylon is a lightweight, wear resistant, non-magnetic, non-conductive, corrosion resistant fastener material often used in electronics applications. Nylon fasteners are commonly made of nylon 6/6, which is generally able to withstand oils, greases, and solvents. Many nylons melt rather than burn and have the ability to self-extinguish. Nylon fasteners may swell from moisture absorption, degrade under UV exposure, or fail in high strength applications.
Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is steel combined with alloying elements, principally chromium, to enhance corrosion resistance and impart other desired properties depending upon the alloying elements in use and their proportions. Many stainless steel fasteners are non-magnetic or less magnetic than regular steel fasteners.
Steel

Steel is the most common fastener material due to its strength properties. Unalloyed steel may be surface treated to enhance corrosion resistance and other desirable properties.
Steel - Cold Forged

Cold forged wing nuts, also known as type A wing nuts, are higher in strength than stamped steel wing nuts.
Steel - Stamped

Stamped wing nuts, alson known as type D wing nuts, have hollow wings formed by stamping sheet metal. Stamped wing nuts have less strength than cold-forged, or type A wing nuts.

Specification

DIN 314

German Standards for wing nuts with flat edge wings.

Type

Wing Nut

Wing nuts may be tightened or loosened by hand, making them useful fasteners in applications where adjustments or disassembly are frequently required. Wing nuts may be used in furniture, items with interchangeable parts, and drum kits.
Wing Nut - Nylon Insert

Nylon inserts ensure that these wing nuts will not vibrate loose.
Wing Nut - Washer Base

The washer base of these wing nuts helps to distribute pressure. Because the washer is integrated into the nut, assembly is faster than installing a wing nut and washer separately.
