  • Why Screws Pop Out of Drywall (and How to Prevent It)

    Why Screws Pop Out of Drywall (and How to Prevent It)0

    When installing drywall, construction companies and contractors use screws to secure the drywall panels to studs. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for these screws to come out. Even if a screw was originally installed deep into the drywall, it may loosen over time. And as the screw reverses direction, it can eventually pop out. Unless you’re

  • Partially vs Fully Threaded Screws: What’s the Difference?

    Partially vs Fully Threaded Screws: What’s the Difference?0

    All screws are designed with external threading so that they can be driven into an object or surface. On the shaft of a typical screw, you’ll see helical grooves. Known as external threading, these grooves essentially dig material out of the object or surface in which the screw is inserted. Not all screws, however, feature

  • 5 Corrosion Resistant Treatments Fasteners

    5 Corrosion Resistant Treatments Fasteners0

    Consisting of a disc-shaped piece of metal — typically carbon steel or stainless steel — washers are used to distribute the load of a bolt. Before placing a bolt through an object, it’s first placed through a washer. The washer works to evenly distribute the load of the bolt to discourage loosening. If a washer

  • How Locking Wire Is Used to Secure Fasteners

    How Locking Wire Is Used to Secure Fasteners0

    Have you heard of locking wire? It’s used extensively in the aerospace and manufacturing industries to secure fasteners in place. Not all fasteners require locking wire. If a fastener is exposed to constant and/or forceful vibrations, however, this otherwise simple component could prove invaluable. Unless you’re familiar with it, though, you might be wondering how

  • What Is a Fine Adjustment Screw?

    What Is a Fine Adjustment Screw?0

    Characterized by the presence of external threading, screws are one of the world’s most versatile and commonly used fasteners. They are designed to secure objects by removing materials while simultaneously creating helical grooves. Fine adjustment screws serve this same purpose, but they feature a unique design that distinguishes them from other types of screws. So,

  • What Is a Bolted Joint?

    What Is a Bolted Joint?0

    While simple in design, the bolted joint is one of the most common ways in which objects are joined. By definition, a bolted joint is a combination of a fastener and a nut. A long bolt with a nut, for example, is classified as a bolted joint. The bolt is placed through a pre-cut hole
