    Rated Grade 2, Class 6, or lower, these nuts are about half as strong as medium-strength steel nuts. They are suitable for light duty fastening applications, such as securing access panels. Use them with screws that have a similar strength rating to avoid stripping threads during installation.
    Zinc-Plated Steel—A step up from plain steel, the zinc plating withstands occasional exposure to moisture.
