ViseNut is a rapid attaching/detaching nut that saves tremendous time and effort in virtually every bolting operation, particularly where threaded members are long, bent, rusted or damaged. Unlike other technologies the Visenut design is not prone to debris interfering with its mechanism. Visenut truly Zips on and Off in real field applications.The patented ViseNut combines two simple machines, the screw and the wedge, into a thread capturing vise grip. ViseNut starts at the end because it engages only to load at the flange face, gliding over all prior threads. For use with offshore, pipeline and plant fabricators; sub sea construction and maintenance; nuclear power maintenance safety; and wind power. ViseNuts are available in all standard diameter and thread sizes. The ATF size of the Visenut is one size larger than the standard nut to accommodate its special engineered features.
