Tapco Adds Western 3-Prong Elevator Bolt in Stainless Steel

Tapco Inc., the largest manufacturer of elevator buckets and supplier of elevator bolts, is the ONLY company that stocks the Western 3-Prong bolt in stainless steel. It is also available in zinc plated mild steel. The Western 3-Prong was recently added to Tapco's existing bolt product line which includes the No. 1 Norway Flat Countersunk, No. 3 Eclipse (Slotted), Fanged and Pointed Fanged styles.

The Western 3-Prong bolt, historically used in Western Canada, is designed for use with smaller head pulleys using thinner belts. The Western 3-Prong is an alternative to Fanged head bolts made for larger elevator buckets. It offers resistance, engagement and strength at a cost-effective price. These new bolts are available in ¼"x1", ¼"x1-1/4", 5/16"x1-1/4" and 5/16"x1-1/2".

With an inventory of over 14 million pieces in 53 sizes in three materials (plain steel, zinc plate and 18-8 stainless steel), Tapco offers the largest selection of elevator bolts in North America. Inch series sizes include 1/4"-20, 5/16"-18, 3/8"-16 and 1/2"-13. The Metric series is available in M6, M8 and M10 are all diameters are stocked in various lengths.

In-house quality control guarantees superior strength. All Tapco elevator bolts are tested for tensile strength, torque, thread conformance and Rockwell hardness. All Tapco bolts far exceed IFI specifications.

Tapco also maintains an inventory of nuts (hex, square, serrated lock, flange serrated lock and large flange serrated lock and nylon insert lock nuts) and washers (flat, split ring lock, internal tooth lock, fender, leather, neoprene and polyethylene).

Immediate delivery is available on all stocked items.
