6 Lobe TX Mushroom Head Barrel Nuts are commonly known as Sex Bolts or Sleeve Nuts and host a standard TX, or Torx drive. They are installed using a standard Torx screwdriver, wrench or insert bit.
Barrel Nuts are typically used to clamp two or more materials together and feature an internally threaded female barrel, allowing screws with a matching thread to fasten into.
The domed mushroom, or mush head, is wider in diameter to create a larger bearing surface – while the smooth barrel under the head helps to maintain a clean and aesthetic finish.
These 6 Lobe TX Mushroom Head Barrel Nuts are often found in playground equipment and outdoor furniture such as park benches.
Note: When calculating the required screw length, it is important to take into account the length of the Barrel Nut and internal thread. The length of Mushroom Head Barrel Nut is measured as the overall length under the head.
Manufactured from A2 Stainless Steel as standard, providing high strength and some corrosion resistance.
