J-Nut Retainers

J-Nut Retainers or J-Type Nut Retainers are spring steel fasteners with strong multi-thread nuts that provide simple, rapid attachment of mating panels. J-Nut Retainers combine the strength of the nut with flexibility of the spring steel cage. They can be easily pressed over panel edges. J-Nut Retainers can also be inserted into rectangular holes in center-panel locations. Constant alignment is maintained by an extrusion in the J-Nut retaining leg which snaps into the clearance hole.

Installing J-Nut Retainers does not require special tools or skills because they easily snap into place anywhere on the assembly line. The nut in the J-Nut “floats” to offset normal hole misalignments. J-Type Nut Retainers are the perfect heavy duty fastener for blind location assemblies.
