  • The BosScrew® was created for plastic applications, the Tap/R® as a thread forming screw, and the Cyclone® for sheet metal applications. Our most recent innovation, the Shakeproof Thread®, integrates a wave thread that, in application, creates a mechanical interference to ensure the fastener simply stays tight. These threaded products are utilized in many applications in the appliance, trailer, electrical, heavy truck, and rail markets.
  • Our helical lock washers, internal and external lock washers, crest cups, and square cones were developed as anti-loosening devices for a variety of applications in the railroad, industrial equipment, automotive, and OEM screw markets.
  • Our cotter, clevis, and lock pins were designed to secure equipment in the agriculture, outdoor power, snowplow, and pole line industries.
