Floating Cage Nut
Often referred to as spot weld cage nuts, retainer weld nuts or bridge weld nuts, floating cage nuts are specifically manufactured with a 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.
