Our History



  • Known as ITW Shakeproof Group today, the company is the result of a 2010 merger of ITW businesses that have a long, rich history in the industrial hardware market. This history dates back to the 1920s, when two of ITW Shakeproof Group’s main product lines
    were created.
  • Shakeproof was formed in 1923 when it introduced the Twisted Tooth Lock Washer.
  • Bee Leitzke, established in 1929, was created through the merger of well-known hardware manufacturers Medalist Rein Leitzke and Hobbs.
  • Together, these companies have decades of problem solving, product design and manufacturing experience which is demonstrated in the quality of the products you purchase.



Our Innovation

  • This innovation focus has resulted in better, faster and easier solutions for our customers and for the end user.
  • As you visit the various sections of our website, you will see the innovations that, through the years, have become industry standards:

    • The BosScrew® was created for plastic applications; the Tap/R® as a thread forming screw, and the Cyclone® for sheet metal applications.  Our most recent innovation, the Shakeproof Thread®, integrates a wave thread that, in application, creates a mechanical
      interference ensuring the fastener simply stays tight.  These threaded products are utilized in many applications in the Appliance, Trailer, Electrical, Heavy Truck and Rail markets.
    • Our Helical Lock Washers, Internal and External Lock Washers, Crest Cups, and Square Cones were developed as anti-loosening devices for a variety of applications in the Railroad, Industrial Equipment, Automotive, and OEM Screw markets.
