Fender Washer
Fender Washers are used to prevent pull-through and provide a greater bearing surface under the fastener. This prevents nuts, bolts or screws from pulling through the base material.

Flat Washers
Flat Washers are for general use and they are positioned under the head of a bolt or a nut in order to provide a smooth bearing surface and distribute the fastener load over a wider area.

Spacers or Standoffs
Spacers or Standoffs are designed to hold materials a predetermined distance away from the surface they are mounted to, or mount two items a set distance apart. Sizes and materials vary depending on the intended usage.

Split Lock Washer
Split Lock Washers are a left hand helix and allow the thread to be tightened in a right hand direction only. Split Lock Washers will continue to hold the bolt against the substrate and maintain friction when loosened slightly, whereas a plain washer will not.
