Re: Nut Keepers, or Welding Nuts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

            Bob,

                        Our experience with keepers is that threading the bolt into the nut in the field is easier if the nut is held tightly with a bolt through the hole when the keeper is attached. A little bit of misalignment or rotation makes a big difference. It may not be your place to suggest this to the fabricator, but the erector may want to do so.
