Unscrewing Rivets are quick release fasteners, suitable for security panels and components that need to be replaced in a hurry. They can be easily installed, tightened, loosened, and removed using a cross head screwdriver.
Our range includes several material options, including rivets made from Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6 that have a cross drive for easy assembly or disassembly. They are ideal for use in electrical and electronic assemblies due to the good electrical insulation properties. Also available are options made from Polyamide PA6 that are suitable for larger hole diameters and offer a high retention force.
Ratchet Rivets are comprised of two identical parts that grip together to form a quick and convenient fastening. They act as a special cushioning washer for larger surfaces, and are ideal for rotating applications, such as rotating sheets.
These useful rivets require no tools, screws or other component parts to install - simply snap two of the rivets together by hand to form a single fastening assembly.
Push Fasteners are an easy to use and quick fastening solution that is ideal for neatly, and securely joining two parts together. They are made from Natural Nylon 6/6.
Nylon is a strong, tough and durable material often used for connecting elements and other technical components. These fasteners provide an inexpensive, fast, and convenient method to join plastic, light sheet metal, insulating materials, circuit boards, or any other thin, lightweight material. Push Fasteners have specially designed legs that provide compression and expansion, helping to lock the fastener into pre-punched holes. They also have large heads for much easier assembly, and can be reused - making them an economical choice for your application.
This range lock into pre-punched panels. The effective design, as well as the Nylon material used to produce them, makes them vibration, abrasion and corrosion resistant.
Also known as Assembly Clips, these two part fasteners have teeth that grip together for quick fastening. Leaves smooth appearance on both sides. Each pack includes the male and femal versions. Available in black and white. Nylon 6/6
Snap Latch Rivets comprise of a Plunger made from Nylon 6 and a Grommet made from Polycarbonate (PC). Together they form a Snap Latch assembly for the joining and securing of panels.
To install; simply push the grommet into the removable panel and then the desired plunger into the grommet. When the panel and plunger are pushed into the fixed panel, it locks them together. Pull on the plunger to easily remove the non-fixed panel.
These handy panel fasteners are ideal for applications that require regular maintenance work. They are offered in easy-grip or mini-grip designs to suit an array of panel hole and thickness ranges.
Snap Latch Rivets are ideal for applications, such as; electrical equipment, metal enclosures, telecommunications equipment, appliances, and more.
