Better speed and better safety require better tools.


If your job requires speed and safety at every turn, you have no time to mess with standard hardware.

  • ZipNut is a revolutionary approach to threaded connections—offering all the benefits but none of the shortfalls and the added enhancement of speed.
  • ZipBOLT was developed to replace threaded fasteners in applications where quick installation and removal times are required. They also offer several other advantages such as no alignment or threading issues.
