Our fasteners include washers, screws, nuts and bolts as well as rivets, furniture fixings, and threaded inserts.

Washers, Spacers & Bushings- Washers are used to reduce wear, prevent a bolt or nut from damaging the object being fastened or to reduce loosening via vibrations. Spacers are used to gap two components, ideal for circuit boards, or creating a space between to objects or materials. Our plastic spacers are ideal as they are non-conductive and non-corrosive. Bushings are used to reduce friction and minimize vibrations. We offer metal and a various types of plastic materials in our washers, spacers and fasteners ranges.

Rivets - Need a quick-fitting fastener? We have a large selection of rivets, including push-in, screw-in and snap together types. The beauty of using a rivet is that they offer a complete fixing solution in one product, saving you time when securing your product in situ.

We carry many standard types, such as hex-head screws, as well as specialty fasteners such as tooling bolts.
