A Cage Nut (also known as a captive nut) is formed from a square steel nut in a spring steel cage which wraps around the nut. The wings of the cage hold the nut securely in a square hole. The nut floats in the cage to allow for panel misalignment. They allow for quick and easy assembly from one side of the panel.
These Cage Nuts have the traditional benefits of a versatile, widely-used, self-retaining fastener. These high strength fixings eliminate expensive secondary operations. This range covers all the popular Metric thread sizes. Other thread sizes can be made to special order.
Typical applications include racks and electrical equipment.
Materials - Carbon Steel (Cage), Mild Steel (Nut)
