Arconic Fastening Systems ' Huck Bobtail® Offers Maintenance Free Joints

The Huck BobTail 12,14,16, 20mm and 1 inch diameters, after lengthy and vigorous independent testing, has gained the prestigious Allgemeine bauaufsichtliche Zulassungen (German national technical approval) from the world renowned DIBt (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik) for use in both static and dynamic applications in civil engineering.

Furthermore, the approval concludes that retorque/retension of an installed Huck BobTail LockBolt® is not possible, as well as being not necessary, and connections do not require maintenance regarding preload.

Thus joints fastened together by large diameter Huck BobTail LockBolts, within the range specified, are maintenance free.
