Stainless Steel Barrel Nuts Supplier

Custom Stainless Steel Barrel Nuts

Stainless steel barrel nuts are specialized fasteners used in various applications, particularly in construction, furniture assembly, and woodworking. They are called “barrel nuts” because of their elongated, cylindrical shape, which resembles a barrel. These nuts are typically made from stainless steel, a corrosion-resistant alloy that makes them suitable for outdoor and indoor use, as well as in environments where moisture or harsh conditions are a concern.

Stainless steel barrel nuts are often used in conjunction with compatible screws, bolts, or threaded rods. They have a threaded central hole that allows them to be connected to the corresponding threaded fastener. The elongated shape and the design of the nut provide a strong and secure connection, making them popular for applications where stability and reliability are crucial.

Typically, our stainless steel barrel nuts feature an internally threaded bore with a drilled and threaded core. This design imbues them with locking capabilities, allowing them to effectively resist loosening when exposed to substantial forces or motion.
