Ordering the wrong fastener should always be prevented because each fastener has been developed for a specific use and is not interchangeable. This means that not knowing the difference between a stainless shank and a stainless cap or the difference between a long life or extended life fastener could mean you are ordering the wrong one for the job, which can result in job delays or even stoppages. If you don’t know the difference, provide details about the specific usage for the fasteners and never hesitate to ask lots of questions when you are ordering.

Here’s Why It’s So Important

As mentioned, there are different fasteners for different applications and more options for those applications. The added options provide a better fit for your project so it’s important to educate yourself on the subject. Often, you may not realize you have the wrong fastener until the middle of the building erection, when it’s time to use them.


When you order, simply being aware that each fastener has a specific and varied use will help you to order correctly. Make sure you ask questions in order to get the fastener that is suited for your building project.
