Different types of push on fasteners from BakFin

Starlock® Push On Fasteners

Starlock® push on fasteners are manufactured from finest quality high carbon steel and are specially heat treated to ensure secure holding quality.

By simply pushing on to the shaft, Starlock® fasteners give an instant fix and grip; thus eliminating costly threading and grooving operations.

Once fixed in position, the Starlock® push-on fasteners are so secure that they cannot be removed without destruction.

Bakfin provide custom designed push on fasteners for special applications or to suit non-standard shaft sizes and shapes are also available.

Decorative caps

Starlock® Push on Fasteners are available with or without a decorative cap. The caps hide the end of the axle and the push on fastener, providing an improved cosmetic appearance when assembled.

Capped push on fasteners are available in three distinct styles: dome axle, deep axel and extra deep axle cap.

The standard dome and standard deep axle caps are manufactured from stainless steel. The extra deep axle cap is manufacture from steel and electro zinc plated.

The caps can be made from other metals; dependent on material specification and volume required.
