Hardware includes bumpers, drawer slides, grommets, hooks, casters, handles, pulls, and other components manufactured for a specific capability or function.
Beam clamps attach conduits, pipework, panels, or other hardware to the flanges of structural beams.
A bolt is a type of threaded hardware fastener that is used to position two workpieces in specific relation to each other. A bolt is specifically designed to be used with a mating, internally threaded hole or nut, which will maintain the bolt's alignment as well as the material's position on the bolt. While used synonymously, screws and bolts are not mechanical clones.
Bumpers are elastomeric hardware devices used for edge protection, cushioning, and impact absorption.
Control knobs are used for the control or adjustment of electronic or electrical devices.
Deadbolts are door security devices that have an elongated bolt that when engaged will insert into the door jam to provide protection from forced entry. Deadbolts are available in many materials and finishes. They can be actuated by key on one or both sides.
Door operators are devices used to open and close all types of doors or gates. These operators can be powered by a variety of power sources such as electric, hydraulic or pneumatic devices.
Door and lid stays are devices connected to a lid or a door that prevent it from opening further than a specified amount, typically 90 degrees.
Dowel pins are industrial fasteners that are used to assemble two or more items together. They are short, cylindrical rods. The dowel pins can be tapered, slotted, grooved, or otherwise altered to change its mechanical properties. They are commonly available in imperial or metric units.
Drawer slides use guides, bearings or rollers to support drawers and facilitate linear motion.
Eye nuts (eyenuts) are fasteners with a looped head. They are designed to receive a hook or rope.
Industrial handles and industrial pulls are hardware components that are grasped by hand and manipulated to perform a service.
Industrial hinges are jointed devices that allow an attached part, such as a door or window, to swing.
Hitch pins and their variations are simple forms of hardware used to temporarily mount or conjoin mating components. Linch pins are specifically designed to retain wheels or other rotating devices on their axles, but can be used as a fastener as well. Both of these types of pins require mating holes and some form of a lock to be effective.
Hooks are load-transmitting components that are most often used in conjunction with chains and other equipment. Products are designated as eye hooks, clevis hooks, or grab hooks and are used to connect lifting and rigging attachments.
Industrial pins are varieties of fastening hardware meant to couple, align, mount, assemble, or penetrate two workpieces. The operation of the pin depends on design and employment, but industrial pins can be categorized into several categories, such as: hitch and linch pins; cotter pins and wire clips; spring pins; locating and fixturing pins; and specialty pins.
Industrial knobs are small, usually round, devices that are designed for use on industrial machinery, electronic components, and metal cabinetry. They are usually made out of metal, plastic, or rubber and are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and finishes.
Latches are mechanical components that hold a door, drawer, or cabinet closed. Typically, latches do not lock; however, some latches provide locking features.
Locating and fixturing pins are press-fit, removable hardware devices designed to align or affix two work pieces to very small tolerances. When translation mechanisms are not stable or precise enough to place objects in position for a particular process, locating and fixturing pins can ensure an accurate alignment.
Lockbolts are two-piece fasteners that consist of a headed, parallel-shank pin with a serrated end and collar. An assembly tool is used to swage the collar onto the serrated grooves in the pin and break the stem flush to the top of the collar.
Locks are mechanical fastening devices designed to close and control access to doors, drawers, or containers. Common types of locks include cam locks, combination locks, deadbolts, padlocks, and key-operated locks.
Nails are available in a variety of shapes and sizes for specific uses. Common nail types include: brad nails, cap nails, common nails, double-headed nails, finishing nails, masonry nails, roofing nails and screws.
Nuts are a type of hardware fastener with a tapped inner diameter. They are used with a mating threaded bolt or rod to secure components. There are many sizes and varieties of nuts; each with a particular fastening purpose. Some nuts can be applied without tools, and others may have special designs to prevent the nut from loosening.
Precision locknuts are used to secure bearings, gears, and other power transmission products to shafts and spindles.
Rivets are headed pins with a point that passes through two pieces of material. Beating or pressing down the point causes it to spread out and form a second head. Rivets can be used to connect two plates or pieces of material together.
A screw is a wide-encompassing type of hardware fastener that attributes its mechanical capabilities to the helical groove that extends around the circumference of the device's shank. These threads provide the friction and traction that serves a screw's purpose: to assemble or position two workpieces in relation to each other. While used synonymously, screws and bolts are not mechanical clones.
Spring pins are hollow dowel pins manufactured from spring steel.
Staples are U-shaped metal fasteners that are driven into a surface to hold or secure an object in place.
Washers are disks of metal or non-metallic material placed beneath a nut, an axle bearing, or a joint, to relieve friction, prevent leakage, isolate, prevent loosening, or distribute pressure.
