There is a reason why we talk about breaking a project down to its ‘nuts and bolts’ and it isn’t because they are the smallest mechanisms in our work. The nuts and bolts of a project quite literally keep the entire experience together and as such these fasteners deserve massive respect and understanding. Today, we are going to take some time to discuss the different factors that can impact both efficiency and effective performance in the nuts and bolts that you use for your work. While not a topic to entice electric conversation, this is incredibly important for individuals looking to be successful in their garage or at their place of work.

Common Factors That Impact Nuts and Bolts

The next time you are in a hardware store or in your own garage, take a look down at all of the different fasteners that you have and use. There is quite a variety, isn’t there? At Ebolts Online, we have been working for years to make sure that our customers can access the unique fasteners needed in order to complete their job. Yet, we haven’t spent much time supplying information to make sure that the fasteners are used to the maximum potential. Let’s jump right into it by detailing a few key components that will dramatically alter or impact the performance and efficiency of your nuts and bolts.

  1. Wear and Tear – When your car starts to wear down, you can see it. With your nuts and bolts, you really have to have an ear for the impact of time. Fasteners can wear down due to repetitive movements and thus will need to be replaced when the time is right.
  2. Incorrect Grade – Fasteners aren’t as simple as they look. Make sure to pick nuts and bolts that are the correct grade for the performance that you need.
  3. Corrosion – Finally, corrosion is a massive inhibitor of the efficiency of nuts and bolts. Galvanic corrosion specifically is an issue to pay attention to. Galvanic corrosion involves two metal pieces rubbing against one another. Fix this by always making sure that you have your rubber washers handy.
