If you've ever had to work on a project in your life then you know how important it is to have all of the right tools and accessories handy for your work.

Here at Ebolts Online Store, we believe in providing our customers not only with great products at an affordable price, but also the knowledge that they need in order to make the right purchase. Today, we will be focusing on mudguard washers and what they can do for you.

Introduction to Mudguard Washers

One of the most important and underrated accessories in your workshop is going to be your collection of washers. Washers are vital to making sure that you finish your project in a safe and effective way. Washers are typically a small, thin plate made out of metal or plastic. With washers, the diameter of the accessory will be at least two or three times that of the hole in the centre of the product. There are many different kinds of washers available for purchase, most of which you are no doubt aware of, but today we are going to look at mudguard washers. Let's go ahead and break down this little accessory so that you can understand it completely before working on your next project.

  • What is a mudguard washer? - A mudguard washer is a type of washer that is built with a wide outer ring in comparison to the hole in the centre of the washer. This wide outer ring allows for a more even load distribution.
  • Where would I use a mudguard washer? - With mudguard washers, the primary benefit is that they can cover quite a sizeable surface space. Any time that you need to secure a large surface area, mudguard washers are going to be the right accessory for you. You'll also see mudguard washers used to cover holes that have widened due to rust or regular wear-and-tear.
  • What are the benefits of a mudguard washer? - The final and most important question: what can mudguard washers help you with? Mudguard washers are typically comprised of zinc which will allow them to minimise corrosion almost completely. Mudguard washers will last a long time due to their durability, so they are typically an exceptional purchase. Mudguard washers also provide a sizeable coverage area which is extremely helpful in special situations that you might run into during your work on your projects.
