Wing Nuts

A wing nut, or wingnut, features two large opposing "wings," that can be easily tightened and loosened by hand. They are generally used on applications that are frequently assembled and disassembled, such as on access panels, adjustable furniture, marine hardware, or other places where torque greater than that achieved with finger pressure is not needed.


Wing nuts can be made through 4 different processes and include:

  • Type A are cold forged with steel or stainless steel
  • Type B are hot forged
  • Type C are made from die casts
  • Type D are made from stamped carbon steel sheet metal
