Nut Caps

Variations Of Nut Caps

Domed Nut & Bolt Caps
our nut & bolt caps are an excellent choice for the covering and protection of exposed nuts or bolts. Also known as plastic nut covers or even plastic bolt covers, these caps have a domed hex head which allows them to be screwed onto the head of a nut or bolt to provide instant covering and protection benefits, preventing the bolt from being tampered with. Hex nut covers are a widely used cost effective solution inside a multitude of industries, being a number one solution for nut and bolt protection. These are a form of plastic fixings or plastic panel fixings that is able to easily be placed over the nut head, providing protection and many other benefits.
Locking Nut Caps
These 'locking' versions of the standard Plastic Nut Covers are suggested for many uses where tampering would be an issue, preventing the bolts or nuts from becoming ineffective and potentially causing damage. It is for this reason that they are so commonly used with playgrounds or school equipment, meeting and adhering to all health and safety guidelines which frequently arise.

Our Plastic Nut Caps or simply Plastic Nut Covers as they are also known, are a hugely popular product for the general protection of a nut or bolt and are available in either Locking or Domed types. Each cap is manufactured from a high quality form of LDPE Plastic or Polypropylene (depending on choice of locking or domed) and comes in a range of RAL or primary colour-ways to provide a clean finish to your application. Typically our 'Locking Nut Covers' are used with playground equipment, where access to the nut or bolt must be restricted to meet health and safety requirements. 

Nut Protection Caps are recommended to improve the security of your installation, restricting the ability for tampering as well as improving the aesthetic over an exposed nut. Our range is available in a number of industry standard BSP and metric sizes from M4 up to M24 however we are also available to manufacture upon request.
