Fasteners with self-clinching nuts suit assemblies on ultra-thin metal sheets

Installing permanently in steel or aluminum metal sheets as thin as 0.64mm, their minimal “edge of sheet” to “center of fastener” distance (3.7mm) enables close-to-edge mounting on a panel. Their 5.6mm diameter and low height of 1.4mm combine for an overall low-profile fastener solution.  

These self-clinching nuts provide strong, durable, and reusable metal threads to accommodate a mating screw, which completes the assembly and eliminates any need for additional attachment hardware. A serrated clinching ring prevents the fastener from rotating after installation.  In service these nuts ultimately will not loosen, fall out, or otherwise adversely affect end-product integrity or performance. The nuts are made from 300 Series stainless steel imparting high corrosion resistance and can be supplied in unified or metric thread sizes #2-56 through #6-32 and M2.5 through M3.5.
