Hex head capture washers and tabs
These weld-on capture washers are meant to hold one end of a nut and bolted fasteners, to allow one-tool tightening. Whether it’s a location that’s not accessible with a wrench or socket or just for convenience. CNC plasma cut from USA made A36 steel to fit 5/8” bolt hardware(15/16” hex/wrench/socket size). Other sizes also available at request
We prefer to use these on the nut side and then mark the tightened bolt head and bracket with a paint marker. That way, at a glance, hardware that has loosened up, can be quickly and easily identified if the paint marks no longer line up.
These will vary in thickness of either 3/16” or 1/4” as they are nested between existing parts on sheets being cut (helping us to minimize waste material as much as possible). These come off the table and run through a parts tumbler with an anti-rust additive, some weld prep may be required.
We also offer a bolt-on style capture tab, for those that don’t want a permanent, welded keeper to be used. Simply drill and tap a hole and bolt the capture tab on. The bolt-on capture tabs are made from 1/8” USA made A36 steel, with a 1/4” hole for the retaining bolt. These accept 5/8” hardware(15/16” hex/wrench/socket size). Other sizes also available at request
Using a different size hardware than 5/8”? Shoot us an email and we can cut whatever other size you need(no smaller than 1/2” hardware, or 3/4” hex).
