Default A Wafer Sandwich of Washers and Rubber

I use this in my rebuilds of bikes and motos.

I replace the very poor hardware with some 18-8.

On both sides of the bolt I place a wafer of two metal washers with a rubber washer ring, o-ring, or similar, in the middle. This reduces vibration and rattle of the bikes, isolates speakers mounted to a faceplate, etc.

Bare end of bolt-Nut-metal washer-rubber washer-metal washer-object to be secured-hole-object to be secured-metal washer-rubber washer-metal washer-nut or screw head of bolt.
