Product Description

Plastic Expansion Nuts are rugged nylon fasteners for applications where metal to metal contact is not desired. Insertion versus retention ratio is not as high as metal expansion nuts; however, screw threads are protected from corrosion or galvanic action because they are completely enclosed in plastic. This also eliminates the danger of wire chafing or scratching on sharp screw cutting edges. Ideal for front-mounted attachments, they are self-retaining and easy to apply. These expansion nuts use No. 8 or No.10 sheet metal screws, and resist pull up to 200 pounds.

Features & Benefits
  • Insulating qualities for electrical and thermal applications
  • protect screw threads from corrosion
  • fast and easy to apply
  • self-retaining in screw receiving position
  • fastener expands to seal the hole from moisture and dirt

Applications: mounting automotive head lamp housing, assembling oven head damper and stove sections, industrial electronics assembly, and many more.
