Definition of the noun Acorn nut

What does Acorn nut mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. (hardware) A closed nut having a dome-like cap over the back, protruding part of the engaged screw or bolt.

Explanation

The acorn nut is a type of fastener which gets its name from its shape. Acorn nut is its common name and it is also called a crown hex nut, blind nut, cap nut or domed cap nut. It is a nut that has a domed top to cover the threads. This is to prevent contact with the external thread to protect the threads or protect other things the threads would rub against. In addition the dome gives a more finished appearance. It is usually made of brass, steel, stainless steel or nylon. It can also be chrome plated and given a mirror finish.
