A dome nut, also known as an acorn nut or cap nut, is a type of nut with a domed or rounded top that covers and protects the threaded end of a bolt or screw. The dome nut is designed to provide a finished and aesthetically pleasing appearance, as well as added safety by covering the exposed threads to prevent snagging or injury.Dome nuts are typically made of metal, such as steel, stainless steel, or brass, which provides strength and durability. They come in various sizes and thread types to match the corresponding bolt or screw.To install a dome nut, it is threaded onto the exposed end of the bolt or screw and tightened by hand or with the use of a wrench or socket. The domed top of the nut protrudes beyond the end of the bolt, creating a smooth and rounded surface.Dome nuts are commonly used in applications where both functionality and visual appeal are important, such as furniture assembly, architectural finishes, automotive applications, and decorative installations. They are particularly useful in situations where exposed threads may pose a safety hazard or require a more polished appearance.
