Nuts are internally threaded devices typically used in conjunction with similarly threaded bolts to create a joining of two or more components.  Standard inch and metric nuts are available in a variety of sizes, strengths, materials and finishes and aid in securing a joint from loosening due to vibration.

When designing a mechanical joint, it is important to ensure the nut, bolt and material being joined are compatible in thread dimension, material and finish to guard against galling, joint weakness or failure.  The method of installation, by hand tool or by high-speed machine, is also a key factor of joint integrity.  Ensuring the bolt grade and finish are suitable for the installation method is essential to a successful joint.

Characteristics of a nut include the grade, shape, thickness, width, thread size and the material and finish.  For more information on bolt chemical, physical and dimensional standards, see the Standards - Nuts page in our Technical Resources section.
