Slide Top (Key-Hole) Standoffs
Many industrial applications today require the ability to quickly and easily attach or remove a printed circuit board or panel from a racked location. The self-clinching slide-top standoff is the perfect solution for that requirement. Monroe-JHP Fasteners offers these self-clinching fasteners, as well as many other types of industrial fasteners, at attractive pricing and short lead times.
Self-Clinching Slide-Top Standoff Properties
- Material: 300 stainless steel (finished per Passivated ASTM A380).
- Suitable for use in: Materials with Rockwell Hardness of B-70 or less.
- Available lengths:
- Inches: .188, .250, .312, .375, .437, .500, .562, .625, .750, .875, 1.00
- Metric (mm): 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25
Slide-Top Self-Clinching Standoff Application Notes:
- Self-clinching slide-top standoffs are specifically designed to allow for quick insertion or removal of printed circuit boards and panels by simply sliding the board/panel into or out of position. This functionality significantly reduces board/panel service time while, at the same time, eliminating the problems associated with loose hardware. Many slide-top standoffs can be used in combination with a captive threaded standoff to effectively lock the board/panel into position.
- Installation force and push-out performance is as follows:
- Installation force: For .060” 5052-H34 aluminum - 1600 pounds. For .060” cold-rolled steel - 3200 pounds.
- Push-out performance: For .060” 5052-H34 aluminum - 250 pounds. For .060” cold-rolled steel - 600 pounds.
These self-clinching fasteners are a popular choice in those applications where the ability to quickly and easily insert and remove printed circuit boards and panels from their racked locations is a key requirement. Reduction in service times, and associated labor costs, are principal design drivers in many of today’s industrial applications. In many of those applications, use of the self-clinching slide-top standoff provides the ideal solution.
