Tinnerman® J-Type Nut Retainers


U and J Type Nut Retainers

U-Type Nut Retainers offer the same advantages as the J-Type Nut Retainers. That is, heavy-duty fastening, low fastener profile, "float" for hole misalignment, self-retention and blind location fastening. With the full-sized lower leg, the U-Type Nut Retainer is preferred where a full bearing surface between the panels is desired. They are applied simply and quickly in center, or end-panel locations requiring no special skills or equipment.

All parts are Spring Steel, heat treated, unless otherwise specified. The only variations available are those shown with suffix letters in the part number.
  • SS - Stainless Steel
  • BE - Beryllium Copper
  • P - Phosphor Bronze

The dimensions of the parts listed are envelope dimensions only. For complete design information, please request a blueprint from your Tinnerman Palnut representative or the Tinnerman Palnut Engineering Department.
