Spring-Loaded Panel Fastener for PC Boards
For applications that require the permanent attachment of screw assemblies into printed circuit boards, JHP Fasteners recommends the use of P-C panel board fasteners. These industrial fasteners are specifically designed for permanent insertion into printed circuit boards and will remain captive to facilitate quick attachment and removal of the circuit board. P-C panel board fasteners are available from JHP Fasteners at attractive pricing and short lead times.

PC Panel Board Fastener Application Notes:
- The P-C panel board fastener may be used in printed circuit board substrates as thin as .060” (1.5mm). When properly inserted, the screw assembly will remain captive to the printed circuit board substrate. Depending on the thread size being used, an installation force of between 250 and 400 pounds will be required to fully insert the fastener. Insertion can be performed manually or via incorporation of an automated press device.
- Depending on the thread size being used, push-out performance will be between 55 and 60 pounds.
