Safety wiring remains the most positive and assured method of securing critical fasteners. Our 1 pound spools of type 304 stainless steel safety wire are supplied in tangle resistant dispenser packs. Packaged by weight, so lengths are approximate.
|Safety Wire Size Recommendations|
|Tightly spaced fasteners less than 2" apart||0.020" |
|Small screws drilled smaller than 0.045"||0.025" |
Double-twist wiring of most #10 to 3/8" diameter bolts
|Large fasteners||0.041" |
|Single-Wire Method||Use the largest diameter possible|
