Are you struggling to figure out what washer to buy? Let us help you: Standard washers have two main functions: To distribute the pressure of the nut evenly over the surface, so that the surface isn't damaged, and to ensure that the nut is pressed against a smooth surface, reducing the chance that it'll gradually loosen because it's in contact with an uneven surface. Square washers are engineered to prolong the life of parts and are utilized to control sound levels and motion such as vibration. A flat washer's function is to spread the load on thin sheet metal and also to be used to make a connection to a hole that has been enlarged by rust or wear. Shakeproof washers are used with screws and nuts for electrical connectivity and for anti back off locking action.
Wentin Fasteners stocks a vast range of washers, available in all types and in the size you need. Search for nylon, rubber, zinc-plated or stainless steel, Form A, Form B, Penny washers, Shakeproof washers, Spring and Square-plate washers.
