S/S Acorn (Cap) Nuts : are these acorn nuts1/4 inch with 20 threads per inch and stainless steel?

6 posts in this topic

Yes, they are stainless/steel. And the ones I got were high quality.(No rust so far, in a coastal marine environment; and on a boat). As for the thread size, they are availale in over a dozen differtent threads. I used these to install 1/4 thick Starboard, custom cut by a friend on his CNC machine, as "weather-cloths" /panels on the aft deck of a motor yacht. The acorn nuts are the "finishing touch" on the "U-bolts", used to attach the Starboard. A couple hundred were used, and none of them have rusted in over 2 years.
