What Types of Pal Nut Are Available?
When it comes to choosing the type of pal nut fastener you require for your project, there are a couple to choose from and each offer their own unique benefits. Nevertheless, both types create a secure fastening that is lower in cost and easier to use than traditional screws, welding, and bolts. The two types of pal nuts are:
Push On Pal Nut Fastener
These pal nuts work by using their ‘teeth’ on the interior to bite onto the material they are pushed onto. This gives them maximum holding strength with minimal force required to push them on.
All of these pal nuts are a product that are self locking and accommodate a wide range of stud variants – though the retention and insertion depends on the studs material and the density of the part it is being pushed onto.
Stamped Pal Nuts
With options available that are both threaded and self-threading, stamped pal nuts have a few benefits for different types of projects. To start, threaded stamped pal nuts use the Hex Lock Nut and the Lock Nut Washer, with the former being ideal for projects where screw length is restricted, while the latter has an integral washer that removes the necessity for a separate washer, which can get lost very easily and grind a project to a halt.
If you would like more information about these two pal nut options, our team at GSS Fasteners are happy to assist. Get in touch today for information on our stock items, as well as how to arrange special orders for your projects.
