Panel Fasteners Install Without Tools

Metal and plastic SNAP-IN panel fasteners can be installed quickly and easily without the use of tools by pressing them by hand into properly-sized, round holes. These fasteners can be installed even after final component assembly in metal or plastic sheets and panels as thin as 0.92 mm and as thick as 1.65 mm. The fasteners are designed with a plastic self-captivating retainer with fingers that grip the mounting sheet to hold the fastener securely in place when pressed into the hole. This panel mounting hardware also has screws with steel threads and a six-lobe recess, or optional Phillips drive, over-molded with a black ABS plastic cap. A slot-screw drive in the cap is standard. The panel fastener's screws are captive to prevent their falling out and one screw length comes with each unifed or metric thread size. With external lobes, the plastic cap can be grasped easily for hand operation.
