Washers, as hardware components, offer multiple functions. They distribute the load of fasteners, preventing damage and ensuring even weight distribution. They can also prevent pull-through in softer materials, reduce friction during tightening, act as spacers, protect surfaces from marring, and offer locking mechanisms against vibration-induced loosening. In specialised scenarios, they provide electrical isolation or prevent fluid leaks. Their selection is crucial based on the specific application, material, and type required.
