Cage nuts: why they perform better than threaded holes

What are cage nuts?
Cage nuts, also known as clip or captive nuts, are made of a square nut wrapped in a spring steel cage. The cage’s design has a pair of wings which can be compressed to allow the entire to fit into a square hole.

Where are cage nuts used?

Caged nuts provide strength and elasticity to multi-threaded steel nuts. They are used in many types of equipment racks and blind assemblies.

Advantages of cage nuts

Cage nuts have several advantages compared to plain threaded holes. They allow a diverse range of nut and bolt sizes and the nut can be replaced if the screw or bolt is over-tightened unlike a threaded hole which becomes unusable when the threads are damaged. They also reduce equipment assembly time in tapping or riveting operations. For more information on cage nuts visit http://www.fastpointweb.it/en.
