We did a survey with our overseas distributors about the different terminologies used to refer to Starlock® Push-on Fasteners and we were fascinated to learn of the different names:
- Push Nuts
- Push on Fix
- Push Ons
- Hub Nuts
- Quick lock washer
- Axle washer
Let us know if you find any others.
For example, South Africa will use the name Push On Fix and the U.S.A. will refer to them as Star Washers with engineers in New Zealand being familiar with both of those terminologies.
Starlock® was the first and the original; be careful there are copies about, but if you want the Real Thing, buy Starlock®!
