Fashions with fasteners

There is a store in Los Angeles that boldly uses fasteners to display their clothes.  The fasteners (and also gears) actually appear to be the theme of the shop.  We were super impressed; it looked great. 

We think their shelves are made of Acme threaded rods with shaft collars.
And we think they're so clever.

Could I do this at home, like as a coat rack?

This is just the greatest idea and I'm for sure going to start using them at home.

Rockin' Fasteners

From folk rock to surf guitar to death metal - the Fender guitar has been at the center of it all.

Let's see how many fasteners are used to hold it together - to help make those wonderful sounds!

Take this Stratocaster

Starting on the pick guard, there are like 15 screws holding it down.

One screw holds each string - we're up to 21.

This is called the 'machine head'. 
Each tuning pegs is being held down with 2 of our tiny little products...how many is that?

This is the thing on the backside of the guitar - let's unscrew those 4 and take a look inside.

I had a feeling...more screws!

So how many was that? I think around 39.  Although I'm sure there are even more that I missed.

In a small way, my product has helped to contribute to some of the best music...that's awesome.

Uncommon Threads

One small change makes a huge difference.
And who knew there was a 'shakeproof division' somewhere?!
