Self-Clinching Panel Fasteners

For applications that require easy attachment and removal of sheet metal panels, the pre-assembled panel fastener is the frequent choice of industrial engineers. This industrial fastener provides a permanent attachment of a screw assembly to a metal sheet, which may then be attached and removed via use of the captive fastener. Monroe JHP Fastener’s product offering includes the pre-assembled panel fastener in a variety of industry standard thread sizes.
