DGX 5/16-18 Delrin Thumbwheel Nuts, Set of Two
DGX 5/16-18 Delrin Thumbwheel Nuts, Set of Two
  • Solid Delrin construction for durability
  • Easier to handle / longer lasting than metal wing nuts
  • Knurled edges for better grip when wet
  • Standard 5/16-18 thread size
  • Includes qty 2 thumbwheel nuts

These DGX thumbwheel nuts are milled from a solid block of Delrin® thermoplastic. Delrin is lightweight and wear-resistant, with excellent dimensional stability. The outside surface is knurled to enable easier gripping and no washer is needed, so they can be easily adjusted or removed without a tool. Sold as a pair, the imperial 5/16-18 threads fit almost every brand of doubles bolts found in North America including DGX, Dive Rite plus the Highland bolts for 8-inch cylinders.

Note these do not fit the special oversized Highland bolts for 7.25-inch cylinders which are 3/8-18 threads. In the European Union common metric bolt sizes are M8 x 1.5 or M8 x 1.25 and these also will not fit.

  1. Awesome!

    These thumb screws work so much nicer then wing nuts. Not only for quick and easy removal of backplate and wing. But no sharp edges to cut into my expensive dry suits or back when in a rash guard.

    The thumb screws are exactly as described. Get them if you need them. All my tanks have them now.

    Threads are clean and tight...we'll see how they hold up over time. They are a bit thicker than a wing nut, but I can't feel them.
