Captive Panel Screws Ensure Permanent Installations

The Types PF7M and PF7MF captive panel screws offer two distinct mounting styles for permanent installation into thin sheets.  Both types feature small, compact, and low-profile designs employing patented MAThread anti-cross threading technology that corrects off-angle installations, aligns components, and slides through clogged internal threads.  Their Phillips recess allows for tool or hand operation. Type PF7M captive panel screws integrate a self-clinching mounting design providing high pushout resistance while the Type PF7MF captive panel screws feature a flaring design, which allows them to be installed permanently into any panel hardness with minimal force.  Both types feature a shoulder on the retainer portion of the fastener to help simplify installation.
