Washer Kits

Washer kits comprise a variety of different disc-shaped plates with holes. They are typically used to distribute the load of a particular type of threaded fastener, like a screw or bolt. What do washer kits do? Washers have two main purposes: To distribute the pressure of a nut evenly to avoid damaging a surface. To ensure that the nut is pressed against a smooth surface, reducing the chance of loosening due to it being in contact with an uneven surface. Types of washer kits Plain washer kits This type of washer prevents damage to a surface when it is being fixed. Alternatively, it can act as electrical insulation. Spring washer kits Spring washers have axial (forming an axis) flexibility and are typically used to prevent fastening or loosening caused by vibration. Locking washer kits Locking washer kits prevent the unscrewing of the fastening device for improved durability.
