Captive Fasteners are available in three basic groups:

  • Self-clinching fasteners for ductile materials.
  • Broaching fasteners for non-ductile materials
  • Weld nuts for sheet metal.

 Advantages: All Captive self-clinching fasteners install into a round hole which may be punched or drilled in ductile materials. All Captive broaching fasteners install into a round hole, which may be drilled in non-ductile materials. Captive weld nuts are designed for attachment to carbon steel and stainless steel sheet material. All three fastener types provide a permanently attached fastener which becomes an integral part of the panel or frame and eliminates the problems associated with loose hardware. Captive fasteners provide added value by speeding initial assembly as well as servicing in the field, keeping costs to a minimum.
