Fasteners & Fixings (<p>RS Components stocks a large range of fasteners and fixings from a professional range of own brand RS PRO and most well-known, best in class manufacturers such as Eclipse, Jubilee and Yahata Neji.</p><h2>What is the difference between a fastener and a fixing?</h2><p>We often get confused as to what the difference between a fastener and fixing is. Hopefully we can help with the understanding a bit more. The two terms are often used interchangeably.</p><p>A fastener is a piece of hardware that joins two or more objects to keep them in place. The normally threaded fastener such as screws and bolts create a non-permanent bond so that the different components can be dismantled or removed if needed.</p><p>A fixing tends to be a piece of hardware that permanently fixes objects.</p><h2>Where would you use a fastener or fixing?</h2><p>Fasteners are used in all the objects that we see and use every day. They are used in household appliances, cars, vans and items such as table and chairs as well as in industrial applications.</p><h2>What do I need to think about when choosing fixings and fasteners?</h2><p>Whether you are looking to buy some nails, sockets screws, anchor bolts, nuts, washers or wall plugs there are a lot of different things you should consider. Choosing and using the correct product to fix and fasten your application can be crucial. Choosing the wrong one for your application can be critical.</p><p>Before deciding on the product think about:</p><ul><li>Why and what you need it for as there are a lots of different types of applications</li><li>The properties that are needed such as dimensions, material, tensile strength and finish</li><li>The part or parts that are needed and how many you require</li><li>The cost involved in choosing the correct screws, nuts, washers etc.</li></ul><h2>Why should you choose RS Components?</h2><p>RS Components thrive on giving great customer service.
