A taper bush is an automotive component that has several different mounting options. The design features a hub that fits a bush in three holes. The hub utilises multiple bolts and screws that run parallel to the hub axis and produce a wedging effect to secure the bush onto the shaft. Once secured to the shaft, this element can be easily removed. Taper bushes also benefit from asymmetric designs, and the hub into which they are installed often has three holes.
