Clinch Access Hardware Integrates Captive Screw

To reduce parts count and prevent screws from falling out, the Type PF50/60 self-clinching access hardware incorporates a captive screw in a spring-loaded assembly. The panel fastener assemblies allow for quick and easy access to components and meet UL 508 operator-access-area requirements (Type PF50) and UL 1950 service-access-area requirements (Type PF60). Depending on size, the component protrudes only 8.64 mm from the top of the sheet after tightening. It also employs a Phillips recess to enable the captive screw to be tightened or loosened using a Phillips screwdriver. The Type PF50/60 installs permanently in aluminum or steel panels as thin as 0.8 mm and is available in multiple screw lengths with thread sizes ranging from #4-40 through 1/4-20 and M3 through M6. Customization options include a six-lobe recess and scratch-proof DuraBlack finish. PENNENGINEERING, Danboro, PA. (800) 237-4736.
