From hanging artwork to tackling more complicated jobs like deck building, we have a wide selection of hardware fasteners. The term “fastener” refers to bolts, nails, screws and other kinds of connecting devices like ratchet straps. Knowing the correct fastener types to use will help your project run more smoothly.
Always use the right size screwdriver to avoid stripping your fastener head.
Over-tightening fasteners can damage the threads of the bolt.
Nuts and washers are sized in both U.S. and metric measurements.
Mismatched metals can cause corrosion so pair your fasteners accordingly.

Beyond Screws and Nuts
Bolts, nuts and washers are among the most common fasteners, but sometimes you need something else, like ratchet straps or bungee cords to keep tools secure in your vehicle. Or, spacers to fit over bolts or screws to maintain space between components.
