During WWII Shakeproof was a separate operating division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW) offering a full line of related items, including preassembled washers and screws and thread-cutting screws. Each item in the Shakeproof division's product line sold for an average of less than one cent a piece, but ITW took the leadership position in the industry and its sales volume produced strong profits. World War II, like World War I, produced a boom for the company, which by this time manufactured components for almost every type of equipment needed for the war effort. Illinois Tool Works is still an American owned Fortune 200 company with 45,000 employees and more than 18,000 patents.
