If you are building any type of structure, it is likely you are already using stainless steel screws. There are many benefits that come with these versatile fasteners. To begin with, they are corrosion resistant and very strong. Secondly, they are cosmetically appealing and readily available. They are also largely non-magnetic and inexpensive, making them ideal for all your fastening needs.
Now you have ordered stainless steel nuts, how do you install them like a pro? Here are the crucial steps:
There are many types of bolts out there in terms of design and shape. Fortunately, this procedure generally applies for all of them. During installation you should ensure you wear gloves to avoid injuries. More importantly, you should avoid high RPM speed because this generates a lot of heat and leads to thread galling.
It is also important to ensure the sheet or surface you are fastening is softer than the bolt. This not only makes your work easier, but also averts problems during installation. It also ensures your stainless steel screws perform the required task and for a long time. Whatever you do, make sure you use high quality screws from a recognized manufacturer to ensure durability.
