J-Nuts | AdvanceBasics

J-Type Nuts or J-Nuts are self-retaining fasteners that provide a simple and rapid attachment of mating panels. J-Type Nuts snap over the edges of panels or into center-hole locations. They hold themselves in place for blind assembly, and they “float” freely for easy hole alignment. J-Nuts are simply clipped, latched or pressed into their mounting holes at panel edges or center panel location where they retain themselves in screw receiving position.

When installed, the mating panel is positioned and the screw is driven for a solid and reliable assembly. Constant alignment is maintained because the J-Nut has an extruding retaining leg which snaps into the clearance hole. Self-retaining J-Type Nuts have a solid grip which reduces vibration. They are easy to remove and replace, and can be re-used without loss of spring resiliency or holding powers. J-Type Nuts are strong spring steel fasteners that reduce costs because they are self-retaining and eliminate the need for welding, special installation tools or skills.
