Kent Tooling’s Knurled Nuts are the Biz

As your diving gets more adventurous, your hands and more specifically your fingers can take a bit of a pounding when it comes to setting up and donning equipment.  One particular nut - the Wing nut - used for mounting a backplate to a single or twinset can really scratch and catch fingers, especially when you’re not concentrating on the task in hand.
