Solutions: Panel Fastening

Push Nuts

Perfect for anti-vibration!

Push Nuts, commonly called “Box” or “Expansion” Nuts, are one‐piece, self‐locking, multi‐purpose fasteners that prevent screws from loosening due to vibration.

Multi‐thread Box or Expansion Nuts are designed with a spring member in the center of the upper leg that can accommodate a wide range of panel thicknesses. They eliminate the need for two close‐tolerance leaf springs, while improving cycle life and effective spring action.

Faster and easier assembly, with no cross threading or stripping, these Push Nuts also help lower manufacturing costs.
