Bobtail revolution

Tired to lose time to tighten bolts?

Representing the most advanced fastening technology to date, the BOBTAIL® System (fasteners and tooling) has been developed to deliver the highest level of performance and reliability.

Engineered to meet the unique challenges of a wide range of assembly applications, BOBTAIL offers safe, quiet, swaged-on installation technology in an advanced lockbolt design.

BOBTAIL is designed to deliver superior joining strength in even the most extreme environments. Available in a wide range of sizes and grades, BOBTAIL also offers quick and easy installation, and up to 10 times the fatigue strength of conventional nuts and bolts. Finally, when you factor in the cost of the fasteners with installation and inspection labor, BOBTAIL often provides an overall lower installed cost.
