This type of pushnut is designed to strike a good balance between maximum holding strength and a reasonable push-on force. Along with the metric version it is the most economical fastener of its kind available.
Pushnuts can be applied very rapidly. Pushing this fastener onto a rod (especially with an air hammer) is much quicker than screwing on nuts.
These fasteners are especially suitable for products shipped in knock-down form.
Typical applications of these fixings include toys, golf trolleys, motor vehicles, domestic appliances.
