U-NUTS

ITW’s single-piece, multiple or single thread “U” nuts have successfully replaced most two-piece designs, offering equivalent strength, significantly reduced weight, better prevailing torque – all at a lower per-unit cost.

During assembly, our high-performance “U” nut is placed over the edge of a stamped panel, or through a pre-stamped slot, and is simply pushed until the rear of the fastener locates against the panel edge or snaps into the clearance hole. Can be used on plastic panels. Single-thread “U” nuts are also available.

Ergonomic Benefits of Collated U-Nuts

REDUCED WEIGHT
By automating the assembly process, Collated U-Nut technology allows you to install more parts in less time and improve assembler productivity by up to 400%.

IMPROVED INSTALLATION QUALITY
Each part is precisely installed, eliminating the possibility of human error inherent in most manual installations. Alignment problems are eliminated as well.

IMPROVED ERGONOMICS
Use of Collated U-Nuts eliminates the need for repetitive manual tasks that can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

SIGNIFICANT COST SAVINGS
More efficient packaging of collated U-Nuts reduces shipping, handling and storage costs and adds to the cost savings resulting from significant productivity increases.
