Fastener Guide

Posted by


While we are working hard on sourcing fasteners to sell along side all of our parts, there are many that we do not offer.  Thus, we've developed this guide to help you find what you need through local hardware suppliers and other sources.

Please note that there are not consistent standards across all equipment manufacturers. You should always measure what you have to compare and double check with the original manufacturer prior to ordering anything from anywhere.

All amp/cab/case examples presume use on 3/4" material.  You may need to modify some lengths if you're using thinner material.
