Answered: R7C any nut clarification

c. Any commercially available #4, #6, #8, M2, M2.5, M3 or M4 screw up to 2" long, and any
commercially available nut to fit these screws.

Would a nut like this be legal under R7C?

Also would nonvex standoffs be legal under the definition of nut?
Like these

Is the rule designed to only allow nuts that are more or less identical to vex nuts or is it a little more lenient than that?

Thanks Karthik :D](

No, those are not allowed. Those are binding posts, not nuts.

I was going off of this definition here.
3 :a perforated block usually of metal that has an internal screw thread and is used on a bolt or screw for tightening or holding something

Was kinda hoping any threaded piece used for fastening would fit the bill.

I will keep this in mind. Thanks for the clarification. :smiley:

You’re welcome!
