What is a Self-Clinching Fastener?
Self-clenching fasteners are classified as part of the electronic hardware family, and they’re not governed by some of the IFI or ANSI standards.
They are known as press bit or cling-style and provide an economical method of joining sheet metal panel applications and printed circuit boards.
They are used in the aerospace and commercial industries.
At MF Supply, we are a Captive distributor; this is one of the major brand names in the self-clinching world. Captive is an alternative to the PEM brand, which we also sell.
