A thumb screw or nut is simply one designed to be easily tightened and loosened by hand, for quick and easy fixturing. Because of this they are characterised by different heads depending on their use. Knurled nuts for example provide ridges for extra grip, whereas winged nuts are designed with wing-like protrusions where space allows for more leverage.
