    Nuts and bolts come in a variety of types and sizes. Other fasteners such as screws and rivets are often sold alongside them. Fasteners also include washers and other plumbing supplies. Most are made of metal. Wooden pegs are used by carpenters and in constructing all wood buildings. Plastic screws may sometimes be used. The metals used are most often stainless steel, aluminum or brass. Chrome plating is sometimes used when a fastener is highly visible. Nuts are generally tightened onto their bolts using a socket wrench. Some may be hand tightened. This type of nut generally has wings. The most common kind of nut is the hex nut, with a six sided shape. Square nuts are also found, as are ones with flanges. Cap nuts have domed tops, and are sometimes used for appearance. Although nuts are sometimes hand tightened, tools are generally used to provide extra torque and secure them more thoroughly. There are also various kinds of bolts including eye bolts and anchor bolts. Most bolts have a 'male' thread, with the thread on the outside. Rarely a 'female' thread, on the inside of the bolt, is used in conjunction with a second bolt or screw. Eye bolts are often used to run rope for lifting items. Nuts and bolts are generally intended for purposes where the fastener needs to be relatively easily undone. Permanent fastening is generally done with rivets. It is also possible to lock a nut to a bolt by various means, some of which are permanent. Nuts and bolts may be measured in Imperial or metric sizes. Some are made for very specific purposes, such as connecting rod bolts found in car engines. Carriage bolts and lag bolts are generally used to secure wood. Most nuts, bolts and fasteners are machine made.
