    M5 barrel nuts

    Anyone know where I can get some m5 barrel nuts? I have an old 17mm hex kit and I can’t find the m5 barrel nuts that came with it. Can I hit up say Lowe’s or Home Depot and find what I need?

    Are talking about "barrel nuts", or set screws?

    Barrel nuts. I have some Chinese brand 17mm hex adapters and they use 5mm barrel nuts that go over the axle threads to hold the adapter. They came with an Allen key to tighten them down but I lost them, couldn’t find a direct replacement.

    HR also had some for their savage hex adapters, but I'm not finding those specifically. They appear to be a bit smaller OD:

    Yes, the first link, the hot racing ones look like the barrel nuts I lost. Thanks for finding that olds97! I’m going to google that around and see what I find.
