No matter what you call them – Push-Ons, Push-Nuts or Palnuts, these fasteners provide a fast and effective attachment on integral studs, rivets, tubing, nails and other unthreaded parts. Made of quality carbon spring steel, ARaymond Tinnerman Palnut Push-On fasteners are heat-treated for long, dependable service at a minimal cost.
Palnut Push-On Type Nuts are ideal for small electronic and mechanical devices, and eliminate the need for machined screws and weld nuts.
Push-Ons keep panels attached as they take a positive bite on metal, plastic or wood, and grip securely even on very smooth, hard surfaces. They eliminate warranty issues caused by vibration loosening and don’t require tools – eliminating time-consuming assembly operations.
How to Apply Push-Ons:
Applying Push-On Type Nuts is easy. You can simply press them into place with your fingers, or use a hand tool to zip them on. They can be used as free parts which are pressed over the shaft, stud or rod ends, or they can be used as captive parts when retained on a panel in a stud-receiving position.
It’s simple: whether the fastener is applied to the work, or the work is applied to the fastener, the method is simply to position the two in square alignment and zip them into locked position.
5 Types of Push-On Fasteners
PS Style – Sheared Push-On Fasteners
PS Style Push-Ons have inner teeth that are flexible, allowing them accommodate larger round stud sizes and variations. Panels will not come apart as these Push-Nuts bite and lock into position for a vibration-free assembly.
They can be pre-assembled or automated on any place along the assembly line. Simply pressed into place, Sheared Push-Ons are lightweight, making them ideal for small devices.
PV Style – Serrated Push-On Fasteners
With strong, yet flexible serrated teeth, PV Style Push-Ons can handle many stud size variations. Simply side them onto unthreaded studs, rods, nails or tubing – and Serrated Push-Ons will grip tight to prevent panels from coming apart.
ARaymond/Tinnerman/Palnut PV Style Push Ons have a one-piece design that eliminates the need for extra fasteners or parts, thus saving costs for parts and warehousing.
PN Style – Insert Push-On Fasteners
PN Style Insert Push-Ons or Round Type Push Nuts slide and bite into position with minimal effort. Used over unthreaded studs, nails, tubing or shafts, Insert Push-Ons have a large bearing surface so they can be installed with an automated assembly or pre-assembled to trim pieces.
Round Type Push Nuts come in flat, 2,4 and 6-prong styles, and have a low profile design that is perfect for small, lightweight applications.
Rectangular Push-On Fasteners
Rectangular Push-On or Flat Type Push Nuts by Palnut can replace standard threaded nuts and lock washers as they lock into position when pressed onto a shaft, stud or rod end. The inner teeth grip tight into place preventing panels from disengaging.
Palnut Flat Type Push-Ons provide a fast, vibration-proof attachment on thick or thin panels. Costly tooling, mounting brackets, tapped hole, washer, welded or complicated threaded fastening devices are eliminated.
PG Style – Retaining Rings/Thinwalls
PG Style Retaining Rings or Thinwalls don’t have inner teeth, but a smooth rigid steel interior that provides high retention when applied over unthreaded studs or shafts. Palnut Thinwalls slide easily into place with tools, or the stud can be pushed into the fastener.
PG Style Retaining Rings have an ultra low profile design which makes them perfect for applications on electronic and mechanical devices. Thinwalls are super lightweight, but hold like a heavyweight!
