Captive fasteners are designed to be a permanent installation once they are properly installed. They can perform a multitude of functions from providing threads in materials too thin for threading to allowing repeated assembly and disassembly of panels. They are available in materials such as 303 stainless steel, carbon steel, heat treated, and a variety of finishes such as zinc, zinc dichromate and tin plating.
Blind Press Nuts
Blind, sealed-thread, press nuts are an ideal choice when protection against the entrance of dirt, oil, moisture, and corrosive environments is required. They are less complicated to use than nut and screw-type hardware that can require seals and elaborate assembly methods. As a result they are an excellent cost saving solution.
