Choosing the Right Twist-Lock Fastener Stud
Our "Choosing the Right Twist-Lock Fastener Studs" video shows the different types of Twist-Lock fasteners we offer here at Sailrite®. There are a few different stud options to choose from when ordering a Twist-Lock fastener. This video discusses the differences between the two screw stud with buttons, the two screw stud with screws, the double-height two screw stud and the two-prong stud.
Fasteners like the ones shown in the short video above are ideal for a number of DIY projects. With so many to choose from, it can sometimes be difficult to know which is the best for your specific project. But don't worry, we've created a guide to help you! Our informative blog titled, "Fastener Selection: Choosing the Right Fastener Type" (#300029XHT) will walk you through every type of fastener we sell at Sailrite and describe what applications they are best suited for.
The Twist-Lock fasteners shown in our video are often used to hold covers and enclosures in place, especially mainsail covers and dodgers, and on luggage and leather goods. They are designed specifically for wet environments. Because they have a very high profile, it's easy to locate and grab these when you need them as opposed to a snap fastener with a lower profile. The special locking mechanism of these fasteners also makes them one of the strongest types of fasteners available if you're concerned that your application accidentally may come undone during a rough storm other inclement weather.
