Float Nut Product Options

At Monroe-JHP Fasteners, we provide you with a wide range of float nut options to suit all types of applications. Whether your project requires the use of a self-clinching floating nut, self-locking nut, floating cage nut, or a blind rivet nut with floating threads, we maintain an abundant stock of the fasteners you need.
 

Self Clinching Floating Nuts

Self-clinching nuts can help compensate for misalignments between work pieces, making them ideal for applications where misalignment of mating components is a problem. Self-clinching floating nuts are manufactured in heat-treated carbon steel or 300 series stainless steel. Benefits include:
  • Provide load-bearing threads in thin sheets
  • Permit a total of .030”/0.76 mm adjustment for mating hole misalignment
  • Sheet remains flush on one side, and the fastener is permanently locked in place on the other side
  • Threads of the floating nut extend into the retainer shank for extra strength and support in assembly

Applications

  • The floating self-clinching nut provides a strong female thread ideally suited for use in cold-rolled steel, 2024-T3 aluminum, and 5052-H34 aluminum.
  • This industrial fastener utilizes a clinch feature that provides excellent torque-out and push-out performance and is installed via application of a parallel squeezing force.
  • The floating self-clinching nut is available in non-locking and self-locking versions.
 

Floating Self Locking Nuts

For applications that require some degree of alignment flexibility, floating self-locking nuts may be the type of industrial fastener that you need. Self-lock nuts feature a unique design that helps prevent them from loosening when exposed to vibrations, making them ideal for applications involving extended movement and pulsation. Advantages include:
  • Self-locking thread technology
  • Provides improved integrity of threaded joints
  • Low installed cost solution
  • Greater reusability

Applications

  • The floating locking self-clinching nut provides a strong female thread ideally suited for use in cold-rolled steel, 2024-T3 aluminum, and 5052-H34 aluminum sheet metal.
  • The floating action of the nut will compensate for mating hole misalignment of up to .030” (.8mm).
  • This industrial fastener provides prevailing torque for the mating screw that is equivalent to MIL-N-250-27.
 

Floating Cage Nuts (Weld)

Floating cage nuts are designed with a unique floating nut that is held within a cage or retainer design to allow off-center or misaligned screws to be installed. The retainer portion of the fastener is welded to a workpiece while the nut can float freely and help compensate for building inconsistencies. Product features include:
  • Heat treated floating nut
  • Easily installed
  • Easily replaceable

Applications

  • Ocean Containers
  • Automobiles
  • Furniture
  • Appliances
  • Rail Cars
  • Forklifts 
 

Floating Blind Rivet Nuts

With advanced technical qualities, the floating blind rivet nut is manufactured with unique internally floating threads that allow for the attachment of components in off-center applications. Floating blind rivet nuts properly align to drive the angle of the screw, thereby eliminating cross-threading and spin-out. Benefits include:
  • Vibration resistant
  • Strong
  • Reliable
  • Creates a threaded removable joint
  • Can be installed in the field as needed

Applications

  • The large flange floating rivet nut is inserted via a hydro-pneumatic (or manual) tool equipped with a floating rivet nut nose piece.
  • The floating rivet nut aligns to drive the angle of the screw, thereby eliminating cross-threading and spin-out.
  • The large flange floating rivet nut is specifically designed for post-production installation in applications that typically use clinch nuts, cage nuts, floating nut plates, or weld nuts.
  • They are an ideal choice in those cases where the manufacturing process creates tolerance stack-up and off-center alignments.
