• Blind Rivet Nuts


    Blind Rivet Nuts provide load-bearing threads in thin sheet materials that are too thin for a tapped thread. They are called “blind” because they can be installed from one side of the work piece.

    Once the rivet nut is installed, additional components can be attached using threaded fasteners.

    Benefits / Advantages

    • Provide a strong thread in thin materials that cannot be tapped
    • Easy to disassemble and reassemble
    • Once installed, additional components with threaded fasteners can be attached
    • Pre-painted material will not be damaged during the installation process
    • Available in many different styles and materials
    • Ideal replacement for weld nuts:
      • More efficient, simple installation
      • Will not distort base material
      • Eliminates weld splatter, toxic fumes, and other by-products of the welding process
      • Can be installed in many different kinds of material including steel, plastic, composites, and fiberglass

    Clinch nuts are self-clinching, internally threaded nuts that are pressed into the base material.

    Ideal for applications:

    • With access to both sides of the base material
    • With high thread strength and superior pull-out force requirements
    • With metal base materials: steel, stainless steel, and aluminum

    Threaded Inserts provide a strong threaded attachment point in soft or hard plastics.

    Ideal for applications:

    • In soft or hard plastics or composites
    • Where post-mold installation is required

  • SH-60-030

    Molded Inserts provide a strong threaded attachment point in soft or hard plastics.

    Ideal for applications:

    • In soft or hard plastics or composites
    • Where inserts can be installed during the molding process to achieve a stronger engagement with base material

  • comp-limiter-group


    Compression Limiters are used in conjunction with fasteners to prevent overstressing of the base material and clamp loss of the fastened joint

    Ideal for applications:

    • In soft or hard plastics or composites
    • Where preventing clamp loss is critical
    • Where protecting base material from overstressing is critical
