The floating internal threads on RIV-FLOAT®-SHORT allow for component attachments in off center applications and can accommodate for tolerance stack up in the manufacturing process. The floating nut (.020” radial float) aligns to re-orient the angle of the screw, virtually eliminating cross threading and spin out. Low-Profile design provides greater backside clearance than standard Riv-Float®.

RIV-FLOAT®-Short is designed for installation in applications where cage nuts, clinch nuts, floating nut plates or weld nuts are typically used.
