"Any fastener made can and will fail if not properly chosen for the correct application or adequately tightened."

DO YOU HAVE A
$10,000 BOLT ?
Bolts, nuts, screws and socket heads, or 'fasteners', as they are referred to in the industry, literally hold the world together. Typically, the cost of a fastener in a finished assembly is only 0.1% the cost of that assembly. This is true regardless if they are used in an airplane, automobile, bridge, building, conveyor or as wheel bolts. Yet, if one of these fasteners was to fail while holding together a critical part, it would mean loss of production, loss of property or loss of life.
