Metric J-Type Nut Retainers
The J-Type Nut Retainer combines a spring steel retainer with a multiple-threaded nut to provide an ideal fastener for heavy duty applications requiring high torque tightening, low fastener profile, float" for hole misalignment and blind assembly. They are easily snapped over panel edges or inserted into rectangular holes in central-panel locations. Floating alignment and retention are attained with extrusions in the retaining legs which snap into panel mounting holes allowing the fastener to shift or align, but not disengage. Applied after painting or porcelainizing, J-Type Nut Retainers eliminate the need for masking or retapping clogged threads. "
