Latch-Type Speed Nuts®
| Latch-Type Speed Nuts® |
Latch-Type Speed Nuts® can be quickly and easily snapped into center-panel locations for blind assembly attachments. They are self-retained in a screw- or bolt-receiving position requiring no welding, clinching, or riveting. The latching principle is easily incorporated into other fastening designs to provide attachment of cables, wires, molding, angle brackets, spring catches and other center-panel-located fasteners.
