Fasteners Guides

A fastener is a critical hardware device that mechanically joins or affixes two or more objects together. Typically, fasteners are employed to create non-permanent joints, which means they can be removed or dismantled without causing damage to the joining components. This characteristic makes them indispensable in both temporary constructions and applications where regular maintenance or disassembly is required.

The variety of fasteners available is extensive, each suited for specific applications and load requirements. Common types include bolts, clips, latches, pins, sockets, nuts, washers, nails, and screws. Each type of fastener is designed for particular uses, ranging from simple household repairs to complex engineering projects, ensuring structural integrity and ease of assembly. These guide aims to provide an overview of the different types of fasteners, their uses, and the materials from which they are made, to help you select the right fastener for your specific needs.
