Wrench Flats

Photo   Sketch
Application: wrench flats are available on rods (or pipe and tubing) up to 1.0" diameter. Wrench flats are typically used in linkage applications where a turnbuckle effect is required (i.e., the linkage ends are L.H. and R.H.). Wrench flats cost less than welded nuts, hex-shaped bar or other turned/machined grip areas.

Finish: plain, painted or plated are available. If plating is specified, standard MCP plating is zinc with a yellow dichromate treatment.

Materials: carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.


Staking Rods

Photo   Sketch
Application: Staking (often called "swaging") is a press operation used in place of welded washers, upset collars, or retaining rings. Stake marks are used to provide a stopping surface for washers and/or the mounting point. A very economical process, staking is available on all sizes of rod fabrications and materials.

Materials: carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Tooling charges can be avoided if our standard stake sizes are used.
