Info
Self-Clinching Floating Nuts provide strong female free-running or prevailing torque locking threads in panels that are too thin to be conventionally tapped. The floating action of this fastener allows for up to 0.8mm adjustment for mating hole misalignment. Utilising a special proven clinch feature, this fastener has excellent torque-out and push-out characteristics whilst providing a flush finish on the underside of the panel. The locking version has an elliptically deformed thread to provide an effective prevailing torque locking action to minimise the risk of loosening.   Like all self clinching fasteners they are installed using a parallel squeezing action, so require access to both sides of the panel.   Floating Nuts are available in various thread sizes, in locking and non-locking variants, manufactured from electro zinc plated steel and 300 series stainless steel and are suitable for installation in ductile steel and aluminium panels with a recommended maximum hardness of 70 HRB.
