Acorn Nuts
Acorn nuts, also referred to as cap nuts, are internally threaded nuts with a dome top.  While acorn nuts tighten fastener joints as standard nuts do, they also cover the threaded end of the fastener providing a safe cover and more finished appearance.  There are some cap nuts, referred to as push-on cap nuts that serve the same purpose on unthreaded rods.
