External Tooth Lock WashersExternal tooth lock washers have teeth around the outer diameter to prevent bolted joints from loosening due to friction. We offer zinc plated external tooth lock washers in a wide range of sizes.
Flat WashersFlat washers are the standard for most general use applications. Also known as plain washers, these washers are flat circular discs used to provide a smooth bearing surface to distribute a fastener’s load. We offer an extensive selection of flat washers in a wide range of sizes and materials. Fender washers are also available.
Split Lock WashersSplit lock washers are rings that have been twisted and split to create two sharp edges. These washers are installed between a fastener and mating surface to prevent the bolted joints from loosening. Split lock washers should only be used in low-intensity applications to prevent the washer from flattening. Available in a range of sizes and materials.
Square WashersSquare washers are wider and thicker than most circular washers and have flat sides to prevent them from rotating after installation. These washers are well suited to machinery, automotive, and other heavy duty applications. We offer square beveled and plate washers in a variety of sizes and materials.
