The Tube Connector Nut is an innovative method for proving a threaded hole in tubes which eliminates the need for other more costly methods such as welding or flow drilling. Known also as Star Fangled Nuts, they facilitate the attachment of a wide range of threaded rod components to tubes.
The Connector Nut is simply pushed into the tube (direction shown below) where it provides a threaded anchor for the mating component.
D = Outer diameter of tube.
