KD Fasteners, Inc.® carries Hex Nuts in various steel and other materials. Hex nut size refers to its nominal thread diameter. The sizes usually range from 1/4" to about 2 1/2" but we can cater to any of your custom needs. Grade 2 is the lowest, in terms of both strength and cost; Grade 5 offers medium strength, and Grade 8 is the highest SAE grade and is usually priced the highest as well. Never replace a graded hex nut with a lower grade or lower strength nut and keep in mind that surface markings identify the grade.
