|Threads Per Inch:
|Imperial - UNF
A type of nut that is designed to be tightened by hand just using finger pressure. Wingnuts are sometimes referred to as Mickey Mouse nuts as the two wings are said to resemble the ears of the Disney character!
We stock wing nuts in various styles including stainless steel and nylon wing nuts.
UNF stands for Unified National Fine. It is a common imperial thread type with more threads per axial distance than its UNC equivalent.
Unified thread types (UNF and UNC) were introduced at the beginning of World War 2 to enable the interchangeability of machinery manufacturing between the USA, Canada and Great Britain. Still commonly found on a vast array of old machines and vehicles in the UK, UNF and UNC threads continue to be the standard thread in the USA and Canada.
