Product Information

STARLOCK® push-on fasteners

Baker and Finnemore is the manufacturer and major stockholder of Starlock® push on fasteners. Starlock® push on fasteners are manufactured from finest quality high carbon steel and are specially heat treated to ensure secure holding quality.

Starlock® fasteners simply push on to the shaft to give an instant fix and grip, thus eliminating costly threading and grooving operations. Once fixed in position, the Starlock® push-on fasteners are so secure that they cannot be removed without destruction.

The majority of our Starlock® push-on fastener range can be supplied assembled with a cap to conceal the fixing and enhancing the appearance. A variety of cap styles and materials are available.
