Installation Hardware

Aircraft quality hardware is required in the FAR’s for installation of parts on Type Certified Aircraft.

We do not specify the exact rivet or screw sizes for these installations.
Screw and rivet sizes or grip lengths should be determined per individual application.
A licensed A&P installer will know how to assist you in determining the accepted hardware.
