A Cage Nut (also known as a captive nut) is formed from a square steel nut in a spring steel cage which wraps around the nut.
The wings of the cage hold the nut securely in a square hole. The nut floats in the cage to allow for panel misalignment. They allow for quick and easy assembly from one side of the panel.
Cage Nuts have the traditional benefits of a versatile, widely-used, self-retaining fastener.
Typical applications include racks and electrical equipment.
