Nylon screws and nuts are a great addition to any robot. Weighing about 1/6 the weight of steel screws, nylon fasteners allow you to save weight for a more efficient robot, yet are strong enough for many areas. Nylon nuts have a 8-32 thread size and are 11/32" wide, which is fully compatible with all VEX EDR® parts and can be used with the same nut tools.
Legal for use on competition robots: Rule R11 permits certain screws, nuts, washers, and spacers.

No matter if you're looking to save weight or money, Robosource.net has you covered with a large selection of nylon screws, nuts, and more. Our nylon hardware is available in a variety of sizes to suit your needs and is a great choice for your robot.
Nylon hardware has about one sixth the weight of steel hardware, which can shave multiple pounds off the weight of a robot. Despite their weight, they're still surprisingly strong. Even though high stress points will still need steel screws, many areas on a robot are suitable for nylon screws.
With a 8-32 thread size and 11/32" overall width, our nylon nuts can be used with all other 8-32 nylon screws we offer and VEX EDR® hardware.
Our nylon nuts are the same size as VEX EDR® nuts, meaning you can use the same tools you currently have. Any of our nut tools are compatible with both nylon and VEX EDR® nuts.
