Many of Budwig’s parts are shipped with steel support bushings. These inserts are employed to give an extra level of strength and stability that go beyond a basic washer, as they prevent nails and screws from ripping into the recesses of our bumpers. Each eyelet is fortified with zinc plating to impede damage from moisture, ultraviolet, and oxidation. Additionally, the steel support bushing can be reverse-inserted for screws to fit in from the bottom.
Ordering our rubber bumpers without the support bushing altogether comes with its own pricing index and is common in applications like cutting boards because of their frequent proximity to water. However if you’re ordering our feet with the eyelets included, rest assured you are getting the maximum protection possible for your products.
