Captive access panel screws designed for easy handline, ready access into assemblies

Penn Engineering : 10 November, 2013  (New Product)
CAPS (Captive Access Panel Screws) from Penn Engineering (PEM) integrate a captive screw into a spring-loaded assembly to provide an "all-in-one’ hardware to securely attach panels, covers, drawers, racks, or other access points, and subsequently enable ready access inside whenever necessary.
Captive access panel screws designed for easy handline, ready access into assemblies
Their integrated screw eliminates handling, installation, and service problems typically resulting from loose hardware and further reduces the overall parts count. The PC/ABS colour knobs can be specified to designate service access levels, reference operating and/or maintenance instructions, and/or enhance the external appearance of an assembly, among other possibilities.
 
These fasteners additionally deliver benefits from anti-cross-threading technology by reliably correcting off-angle thread mating and ensuring proper alignment during installation. 
 
PEM CAPS install permanently in aluminium or steel sheets as thin as 0.92mm by pressing them into properly prepared mounting holes. A proprietary shoulder on the fastener’s retainer creates a positive stop feature to confirm complete and reliable installation. The fasteners can be supplied in several mounting styles (self-clinching, flaring, or floating) and in multiple screw lengths with thread sizes from #4-40 through #10-32 (M3 through M5).
 
A Phillips drive allows for tool access and the robust knurled knob can be activated for hand operation. Knobs can be specified either in standard black or in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, or metallic. Custom colours can also be developed.
