Design engineers who have limited space and need to control axial motion within their applications can turn to clipped washers from Boker’s. 

Clipped washers have a flat edge on either the outside diameter (OD), inside diameter (ID) or both. This flat edge helps prevent the washer from rotating in applications, especially when space is limited, and component performance is critical. Many applications require clipped washers, and they are used across many industries including:

  • Automotive
  • Marine
  • Aerospace
  • Medical
  • And countless more

The functionality of the clipped washers come from providing a flat bearing surface within assemblies. They are generally used under the head of a bolt and/or a nut to disperse loads as well as to prevent the washer from turning in the application. They are mounted with the flat edge of the washer facing a flat surface or recessed hole to prevent rotation. Clipped washers are available in steel, stainless steel, aluminum as well as over 2,000 other stock metallic and non-metallic materials to meet specific applications needs.
