PUSH FITTINGS

V. Ryan 2004 - 2008

 

A large range of fittings for wheels, shafts and screw threads are available. Most fittings are temporary in that they can be tightened and untightened when required. The fitting below is strong, safe and low cost.

Push on fittings are very popular as they are simply pushed onto the steel / plastic shaft. They are made from hardened spring steel which makes them tough and flexible. They can only be pushed in one direction only (forwards). To remove them they must be forced backwards, this will damage them so that they cannot be used again. As they are very cheap and disposable, they can be replaced. They are suitable for light wheeled vehicles such as light trolleys.
