Cage Nuts (also called Clip Nuts) are widely used in rack mounting and computer construction. The cage of this type of nut is generally clipped to a square hole in sheet metal, or to a metal mesh, creating a light-duty fixture which is versatile, easily installed, and easily replaced if damaged. Cage Nuts are particularly useful with housings which are too thin or soft to create a suitably threaded bore.
One of the major advantages of a Cage Nut is that it allows a variety of fasteners to be used within an assembly, as only a basic square hole is required for installation. A Cage Nut can act as a threaded insert, allowing non-metric assemblies to be adapted for use with metric threads without any requirement for re-tapping.
Cage Nuts are manufactured from A2 Stainless Steel as standard, and can be coated with our specialist PX-3 Chemical Black Coatings on request.
