Flanged Hex Nuts

Flanged hex nuts are fasteners with threaded holes and broad flanges (outer ridges) that also fulfil the function of washers too. These nuts are designed with a hexagonal shape and are constructed with hardened steel and exterior coatings made of zinc.

What are flanged hex nuts used for?

Flanged hex nuts are typically found in manufacturing assembly lines. They are used as single fastener mechanisms and speed up operations because the need for washers is eliminated. In the automotive industry, these nuts are used in door hinges and seat attachments.
