Default what kind of nut is this?



Hi All,

What the flat bottomed nuts/bushing/spacers called? They are threaded for a bolt, about 1/2" or so in length and thickness.

Thanks,

Mike

This is weird, I look at my post on the computer and the picture is there but not on my phone. But in case it did not show up, it is the center one that Burner posted. I have a lead but just incase that does not pan out I am looking for another option.

Thanks,

Mike

Yup, I was right, a "D" nut. Or, a clinch nut

I used to have a BIG humorous poster of "special use" BOLTS. Anyone have that pic & would post it?--I "think" it was by some NUT/BOLT supplier.
