Repair Washers

Often called penny washers or mudguard washers, repair washers have an overall outside diameter that is larger than standard flat washers.

This increased surface area spreads the force (and hence the tension load) that is applied over a much greater area when the nut is tightened, making them ideal for use on weak or damaged surfaces.

Repair washers are available in either metric or imperial variations. Imperial repair washers are thicker than their metric counterparts making them suitable for more heavy-duty applications.
