Blind Sheetnuts provide strong reusable threads in panels too thin to be conventionally tapped and in applications where only one side of the panel is accessible for installation - box section is a good example. They can be installed into panels as thin as 0.5mm and do not suffer from the maximum hardness limitations of Self Clinching Nuts so are suitable for installation into Stainless Steel panels.
Sheetnuts require a special tool for installation - tooling ranges from very low cost hand tooling for low volume, to air powered automatic installation guns for high volume applications.
Sheetnuts also have an advantage over other captivated fasteners because they can be installed on site after a component has been assembled. They can also be used for repair work to replace a previously installed fastener that has failed. The fact that they offer blind installation means that you don't have to have access to the back of the panel.
Available in Open Body and Closed End Styles, in Thinsheet, Flat Head, Countersunk and Hexagon head styles in Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminium, with the option of a splined body for extra grip when installing into soft materials.
