Access panel screws

Designed "to promote secure attachment" the new PEM C.A.P.S. access hardware incorporates a captive screw and a plastic, coloured cap in a spring-loaded assembly.

"Not only does the product enhance secure fastening and enable subsequent access, the design reduces parts count, minimises handling, and prevents screws from falling out or damaging internal components", says Michael J. Rossi, PennEngineering.

The fasteners are offered in self-clinching, flaring, and floating mounting styles to install permanently in a wide range of panel materials and hardnesses. Offered in multiple screw lengths with thread sizes from M3 to M5, the product are available in a range of eight standard colours, including black and silver metallic.

As regards installation, the fasteners are pressed into mounting holes - their integrated anti-cross-threading screw technology ensures proper alignment.
