Tinnerman rear mounting Bolt Retainers and mounting clips
eliminate problems of blind location, bolt retention, threaded stud damage, paint-clogged threads, weld flash and difficult assembly or removability wherever threaded studs may be used. Mounting clips can be attached after finishing and just before final assembly to eliminate thread damage due to stacking, weld flash, paint clogging, etc. One type is mounted from the front to ease assembly in blind or difficult locations. Both are self-retained and can be easily removed and replaced without damage to the mounting panel. Access to the underside of the panel is unnecessary because the bolt cannot turn as the nut is driven to its prescribed torque. A shallow emboss allows flush mounting of mating panels.
How to apply rear mounting Bolt Retainer mounting clips
Hold the thread bolt between the thumb and forefinger. Tip the retainer into the mounting hole allowing the wing-like spring legs to rest on the panel. Allowing the wing-like spring legs to rest on the panel. Apply a rearward pressure on the top panel side of the bolt until the embossed shear snaps into the panel hole locking the Bolt Retainer mounting clip in position.
The dimensions of the mounting clips listed are envelope dimensions only. For complete design information on Bolt retainer mounting clips, please request a blueprint from your Tinnerman Palnut representative or the Tinnerman Palnut Engineering Department.
