The SN Series nut, part of the Caddy line of fixings, fasteners and supports from Erico, is a new solution for supporting loads on threaded rod. The company says the SN Series Nut is easy to install and can be positioned instantly on threaded rod at any location, helping to reduce installation time. The nut is opened and inserted on the threaded rod where needed. Then it is twisted to close and tightened with a wrench. The SN Series Nut can be added to an existing application making it ideal for a variety of retrofit projects, including trapeze installations. It is designed to reduce the need for threading and offers an installation time savings of up to 50 percent compared to standard nuts and washers, said the company.
