Durable and Reliable Industrial Finishing Products

Sliding locks

When most people think of technology the first things that come to mind are computers, Androids and iOS devices, and maybe their new, ecofriendly car. Seldom do they think of the cutting edge industrial machines, industrial tools, heavy duty hardware, or the people that produce all of their nifty little gadgets. The fact is, without those little metric spacers, snap rivets, magnetic catches, sliding locks, and rubber grommets, we would still be counting on abacuses and talking through tin cans.

In reality, you really cannot blame people for not appreciating something enough when it goes on behind the scenes. It is akin to the production team working on a blockbuster movie. Of course, those people will at least get a mention during the closing credits, while the folks who are responsible for producing the technology that makes the world go round are truly faceless individuals working furiously behind their lonely curtains.

Not only do we not see the work that goes on behind factory walls, most people have no clue how their products work. They do not realize that those little rubber grommets had to be installed with great care and accuracy in order to protect the wires inside their devices from being damaged, or severed, by sharp pieces of metal. When so many of us depend on our digital devices and automobiles just to function daily, wire management plays a vital role in our devices working properly and each of us getting to work safely.

Even if we were to celebrate each and every factory worker it would be impossible to quantify their value. Although elevating circuit boards and separating pieces with threaded standoffs seems simple, what would happen if these things were done incorrectly? What would be the consequence of using the wrong size of rubber grommet? None of us wants to think about that, and, gratefully, we usually have no reason to.

The bottom line is no matter how simple or mundane the jobs of some factory workers may seem, they need to do them flawlessly every time. Even though they work with the highest quality industrial hardware, nothing matters unless all metric spacers, nylon nuts, and plastic screws are assembled with 100 percent accuracy. And it is because of that accuracy and attention to detail that we are all sitting where we are today.

    I’m in the process currently of assembling a tree house for my kids of my own design. The sliding locks are an idea a coworker came up with but I am wondering about a fitting solution that will create the best balance.

    Okay. Balancing what? You say “tree house” but what is the size? How are you balancing it in the first place? Whatever you do I would recommend making sure that it rests at least a four points and that you have a middle supporting structure.
