Huck® Fasteners are found in every tough engineering situation. Railcars, railway tracks, rolling stock, aerospace, trucks and trailers, bridge construction, cars and mining/quarrying. In fact anywhere that fastener failure is not an option. Huck® fasteners have been designed to cope with extreme stress and vibration, providing strength and facilitating lighter, stronger, more durable structures.
The heavy-duty tamper-resistant fasteners are used wherever high structural strength and resistance to vibration and loosening are required. For example bogies, chassis coupling mechanisms, cabs, sidewalls to chassis and sidewalls to roofs. The blind self-locking range is popular for installation on air-conditioning units, door and window frames, luggage shelves, front and rear panels and brackets; however the installation possibilities are endless.
Star Fasteners is proud to announce the next step in Lockbolt evolution. The new Bobtail® fastener combines rugged installation tools with a precisely engineered fastener range to deliver superior value and performance. The Bobtail® installs in only two seconds, up to twice as fast as any other large diameter Lockbolt on the market. Bobtail® has the benefit of no pin-tail or pin-break; this reduces material waste, has low installation noise, no pin-break shock and therefore increases its corrosion resistance.
