One of the most widely used fasteners is the hex nut, which has six sides and is shaped like a hexagon. Hex nuts can be constructed of steel, stainless steel, nylon, and other materials. They can firmly install a bolt or screw via a threaded hole; the threads frequently have a right-handed orientation. It is easier to deal with because it has six sides, and tools like a spanner or ratchet make it very adaptable when tightening or loosening. Nuts function through a combination of thread friction and component compression, but for full thread contact, they must extend beyond the bolt and pass through at least two complete threads.
