Spring washers, also called split ring washers, are perfect for making strong connections with a bolt and nut. The spring washers provide extra solidity and prevent the nut and bolt from loosening. We offer galvanised and stainless steel washers in the sizes M6, M8, M10, and M12.

Frequently asked questions
What is a spring washer?
Spring washers, also called split ring washers, are used in combination with bolts, screws, and nuts. They increase the friction between the bolt and nut, creating extra tension that prevents the nut from loosening due to vibrations. Spring washers are available in different materials and sizes. Are you working with moving or vibrating constructions? Then consider shakeproof washers. These washers are serrated, giving them extra grip. When this moving or vibrating construction should not be scratched or scraped, spring washers are a better alternative because of their smooth exterior.
What do you use a spring washer for?
Spring washers increase the friction between the bolt and nut, creating extra tension that prevents the nut from loosening due to vibrations. They are therefore often used with moving or vibrating constructions and machines.
Where do you position a spring washer?
The spring washer should be used on the side of the nut. If you are using it in combination with, for example, a penny washer, then the spring washer should be the one touching the nut. Be careful that you do not tighten the nut to the point where the two ends of the ring are completely aligned. You can also use lock nuts instead of normal nuts.
