Default Where to find nylon wing-half securing nuts?

I have been searching for 1/4" nylon nuts somewhat similar to the pictured over internet. Not very successful.

The nut is about 3/4" in diameter (at the base) and 1/2" in height and of UNC type thread (coarse).

One nut is used to secure one half of the wing panel on my passport.

Appreciate any tips.

What size? If they're ΒΌ - 20, the perfect wing nut comes with a toilet seat bolt.

Ace Hardware has a great assortment of stuff like that, might have what you picture. Flange nuts, I think they call 'em.

Good luck,
Dave Olson

Lowes Hardware or Home Depot.
But the best place for just about ANYTHING IS Mc Master-Karr.com.

McMaster-Carr is a good place too

www.mcmaster.com


but locally a good ACE hardware or True Value will have nylon nuts. Nylon wing nuts work well for this application.

.

Thanks a lot all for the tips.

I went with the one available at McMASTER-CARR. it is called "nylatron round kurnled thumb nu"t with product ID 93995A360. 1/4-20, 3/4 head diameter, 1/2" overall height.

The spec matches my existing nuts quite well. The length of the section with thread (the height) is about 1/2 inch. Since the thread is coarse, I want the thread section has enough threads to avoid any chance of backout.

At Lowe's, I found nylon wing nuts and alum hex nuts. Either type is light and has a much shorter height than 1/2". Looks like two are needed per wing panel.

The one sold by granger.com probably has the shorter height as well. otherwise, it is a good fit.

Thanks again.
