Metric Bolts, Nuts & Washers

This table presents the most commonly used varieties of small to medium size metric hardware. Nut dimensions are maximums per ISO. Washer dimensions are for the regular size (vs. narrow or wide). All dimensions are in inches. Be aware that a search for hardware dimensions will yield variable results since many reported dimensions are manufacturers' production values, not necessarily the official ISO values.

Note: For critical applications, consult official ISO manuals to obtain dimensions.

All sizes are millimeters (mm).
