Cage Nuts | AdvanceBasics

Captive Nuts or Cage Nuts are self-retaining fasteners that are easy to apply on racks & equipment mounting applications. The strong spring steel cage  and the a high-strength multi-threaded nut make this the ideal fastener for blind assembly locations. Captive Nuts are easy to install as they snap into bolt-receiving position at panel edges or centered-panel locations.

Spring-steel “mechanical hands” or wings that keep the Captive Nut stationary in a square hole which helps with bolt insertion. When pressed to locked position, the mounting legs on the Cage Nut expand around the panel and force past the retainer spring tabs which snap back to lock the fastener firmly in place. Any convenient spot along the assembly line is fine for application.
