Find the Right Self-Clinching Panel Fastener for Your Project
Advantages of Using Self-Clinching Panel FastenersSelf-clinching panel fasteners come with a wide range of advantages over other types of screws and fasteners. They provide strong threads in thin metal sheets, create high pushout and torque-out resistance, and do not require special hole preparation. Our panel fasteners have a low cost of installation, and no retapping is necessary after application.
Captive Fastener’s self-clinching panel fasteners are captivated in the assembly, so there is no worry of losing the screws during servicing in the field. The panel fasteners retain their dimensional integrity during the clinching process since the metal in the panel flows around the clinch profile of the fastener, unlike a swage fastener or rivet.
