The Carr Fastener Company introduced a grease gun for automombiles and heavy equipment that featured an acme thread with a 1/4 turn engagement. The company was primarily known for its fasteners for such things as tops and side curtains.

These grease fittings were used on late model Stanley Steam Cars, including the Model 740, Model 750, and the 1925 and 1926 SV or Steam Vehicle Corporation cars.
