Threaded Rivet Nuts
Thu, 03/04/2004 - 5:50am
Heavy-duty Atlas MaxTite® threaded rivet nuts feature a thicker head and heavier wall than standard rivet nuts for use in demanding high-load applications. These fasteners are designed to provide strong, permanent metal threads in "blind" attachment applications, where only one side of a workpiece is accessible for fastener installation and final component assembly. They can serve as practical alternatives to tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, and self-drilling or tapping screws. Installed from the accessible "front" side of a workpiece, the threaded rivet nuts can be utilized in panels as thin as 0.02 in./0.51 mm.
