U-Type Speed Clip Fasteners
Tinnerman® U-Type Speed Clip Fasteners snap easily over metal, plastic or wooden panels providing a strong clamping action for firm, vibration-free assembly. These fasteners are self-sufficient requiring no holes, screws, welds, rivets or other secondary fastening devices. U-Type Speed Clips are low cost, removable and reusable requiring only the simplest assembly procedure. Turned-up lead lips on one or both legs allow fast assembly over the panel edges. Some fasteners are equipped with barbs for positive retention of the panel.
Depending upon design, the fasteners can be used to clamp or hinge panels together, provide a removable spring catch, apply delicate spring tension on fragile surfaces, secure light components within cavities, etc. Fastening applications for these heat treated, spring steel Speed Clips are limited only by the imagination.
How to apply U-Type Speed Clip Fasteners
• Align panel to be secured and lead U Clip over the edges at a slight angle.
• Once both legs are started over the panel, simply press until fully seated.
