Un-threaded fasteners are the unsung heroes of fastening efficiency, and there’s more to know about them than you thought.

Some are as old as rocks and just as simple, and some are new simply tricky.

Come to this one-day, hands-on training program and find out what you don’t know about:

  • Blind Rivets
  • Solid Rivets
  • Retaining Rings – of all kinds
  • Spring Pins
  • Dowel Pins
  • Cotter Pins

  • Hex Keys (AKA Allen Wrenches)
  • Push-on nuts
  • Bushings
  • Spacers
  • Flat Washers

    Un-threaded fasteners are one of the top ways to simplify assembly and save money. They also are among the highest profit items in your inventory. Learn how to specify, use, recommend and SELL these gems to your customer base. You will also handle and learn how to install them!

    This is a technical training program that is appropriate for all levels of experience in the fastener industry.
