Self-Clinching Nuts are used to provide a female thread on a sheet material without welding. We stock a wide range of metric sizes including m4, m6 and m8 Clinch Nuts. Our Self-Clinching Nuts and Studs are available in zinc-plated or stainless finishes.
Self-Clinching Nuts are installed by drilling an appropriately sized hole in the sheet material, inserting the nut, and then compressing it into place using a press. The underside of the nut has a clinching ring which is serrated so that, under the pressure of the press, the serrations sink into the sheet metal and grip it. This grip then provides resistance against any rotational forces when a female thread is connected on to the nut.
