Bobtail Fastener


Introducing the newest Huck Lockbolt- the BOBTAIL® Fastener
Record installation times. Lightweight tooling. No torque required.
The BOBTAIL system includes lockbolts and installation tools that deliver performance beyond anything Arconic Fastening Systems and Rings has ever produced for the fastener market.

The BOBTAIL fastener:
  • Is vibration resistant
  • Installs in 2 seconds or less*
  • Provides proven performance with high and consistent clamp load.
New installation tools:
  • Are lightweight, quiet and easy to handle
  • Have been designed for a smooth shock-free sequence, eliminating jolts to the operators arms and hands.
  • Utilize the same equipment for both installation and removal, unlike other fastener systems that require separate tooling.
Contact your Arconic Fastening Systems and Rings representative today for a sample and a demonstration.
