|As most aviation buffs know, Dzus® are the quarter turn fasteners used to lock the skin panels on aircrafts into place. They are also used on motorcycles and racing cars and have to be removed quickly and often. They're very dependable because unlike threaded fasteners, they correct themselves if there is any minor disturbance. SkyGeek carries excellent high-quality tools to lock and unlock Dzus type fasteners (also called Z-lock). Our Aircraft Stool Supply DZS1 fastener driver is excellent for those that know their brands. It has a wide blade as well as a radiused tip that makes locking and unlocking Dzus fasteners a snap! And you won't have to worry about slippage ? the handle is large and contoured making it easy to grip. SkyGeek also has their own version, and just like the one by Aircraft Tool Supply, it fits #5, #6 and #6.5 series studs. And for the ultimate in unlocking Z-Spec type fasteners, MilSpec offers an excellent fastener driver. When working on an aircraft's skin panels, enjoy the major amount of grip and torque you get. The MilSpec is heat-treated and zinc-plated so it will last a lifetime. |
