Prized not only for their aesthetic, square nuts have a larger amount of surface area in contact with whatever part is being fastened, and are far less likely to become rounded off after loosening and tightening repeatedly.
While square nuts are hard to find in any grade of stainless steel, we carry them in 316SS, one of the most corrosion resistant grades which is suitable for marine use in saltwater environments.

316 Stainless Steel Square Nuts
I have a boat lift where the bolts kept rusting on me. I found stainless works with aluminum and in the water. After searching for stainless, I found this site. I had to place 2 separate orders due to not seeing what other bolts etc I needed. The greatest part of this was fast delivery, relatively local business, AND a hand written Thank you on the invoice! How many businesses give you that to make you feel important?
Thanks again for your "business" to be out there for us!
