The internally floating threads on RIV-FLOAT® 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 drive the angle of the screw virtually eliminating cross threading and spin out.

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