Q&A

  • How are TS anti-loosening fasteners used? Is there anything to heed?
    The hardness of the surface the fasteners are to be fixed onto should be below HRC42 for carbon steel, and HRC30 for stainless steel. The fasteners are not to be fixed onto non-metal such as glass, wood and plastic. The assemblies must not slide or rotate. Please use electric tools rather than pneumatic or impact ones. Do not apply force after the products are fastened tightly.
  • Are TS anti-loosening products used the same as regular ones?
    They are used in the normal way. It takes only a hex wrench or hex socket to screw them. No special ways or tools are needed. Make sure that the wedge surface of each product faces each other. Please avoid using pneumatic impact tools, as they may cause dents in the surface of the assemblies and the over-stretching of the screws.
  • Do I have to buy the TS sleeve to fix TS anti-loosening screws or nuts?
    To fix TS anti-loosening products, simply use a hex wrench or a regular sleeve. The TS sleeve is intended for the removal of TS products. *If the product you purchase is a set of TS double washers, then you do not need to purchase a TS sleeve. **Note: The TS sleeve is only for removal. A regular sleeve or wrench will do.
  • Is there any restriction on the use of TS anti-loosening products and on the environment they are used?
    TS anti-loosening products and other screws and nuts are alike in terms of use. However, TS anti-loosening fasteners are more suitable for working environments with high-frequency vibrations or products meant to be secure, for anti-loosening and anti-slip purposes. The excellent anti-loosening function of these TS fasteners reduces accidents, the maintenance costs of users, and damage caused by high-frequency vibrations to connecting objects, thus prolonging the service life of the products and increasing their added value.
  • Are there any certifications for TS anti-loosening products?
    TS has achieved a TÜV certification and is ISO 9001:2015 certified, both the manufacture and the quality meeting high standards. TS anti-loosening fasteners have passed The NAS3350 vibration test NETIS certification by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (Allowed to be used in public facilities in Japan such as Tokyo Skytree and solar power sites) The DIN 65151 Junker vibration test (DIN 65151, GB-T 10431-2008) Anti-loosening fasteners of choice for solar PV sites
  • How do I choose the right anti-loosening fasteners?
    Your TS fasteners vary with your product design and needs. There are four basic options to choose from: TS anti-loosening screw*1 + TS anti-loosening washer*1 TS anti-loosening nut*1 + TS anti-loosening washer*1, with carriage bolts or screw head not rotatable TS anti-loosening screw*1 + TS anti-loosening nut*1 + TS anti-loosening washer*2 TS anti-loosening washer*2, with standard screws and nuts We will suggest the option according to the customer's requirements. Feel free to contact us. We have professionals to help you.
  • Our company is very interested in TS anti-loosening fasteners. What are the specifications of your standard products?

We can provide matching products to the customer's required size or customized ones. You are welcome to call, e-mail, or Line us with information on where fasteners are needed and what the structure is. We will offer you professional solutions.
  • As far as I know, some nylon nuts and anti-loosening adhesives are heat resistant to a certain degree. The higher the resistance to heat, the higher the price. What is the heat resistance of your products?
    You can be sure of the resistance. As we have emphasized, the design principle of TS anti-loosening fastener is based on that of mechanical reversal, so the heat resistance will depend on the material of the fastener. There is no concern about the heat resistance of TS anti-loosening fasteners. As long as the material is not damaged, you don’t have to worry about function failure or reduced performance due to high temperatures. **It is recommended that our products be used at normal temperatures. If your environment is special, please call or write to us for more information.
