Rivets are used for joining spar sections, holding rib sections in place, securing fittings to various parts, and for fastening bracing members and other parts together.
The type of metal used in an aircraft bolt helps to determine its strength and its resistance to corrosion. Therefore, it is important that material is considered in the selection of replacement bolts.
The most common threaded fastener used in aircraft construction is the screw. The three most used types are the structural screw, machine screw, and the self-tapping screw.

Most of our aircraft hardware can be identified by its specification number or trade name. Threaded fasteners and rivets are usually identified by AN (Air Force-Navy), NAS (National Aircraft Standard), and/or MS (Military Standard) numbers. Quick-release fasteners are usually identified by factory trade names and size designations.
Because of the small size of most hardware items, their importance is often overlooked. The safe and efficient operation of any aircraft is greatly dependent upon correct selection and use of aircraft structural hardware and seals. Our in-stock trove of hardware products reflect these selections.
