What is a wing nut? What are its uses?
Also, I am not sure if I am right or wrong but do wing nuts work autonomously; meaning as long as the threaded rod is moving, do they still tighten? For further clarity for example, for regular nuts, one would use a wrench to keep the nut from spinning and while the rod would sping causing the nut to tighten. However, for wing nuts does a person need that resistance (usage of the wrench) to tighten. Also, are there any nuts that self tighten like that?
