Push on fastener kits contain combinations of differently sized fasteners that can be placed onto shafts to provide instant grip. These fasteners are used to permanently assemble components onto smooth shafts without having to thread, drill or groove the parts into the shafts.
They have radial fingers (teeth) that connect with the shafts at 90-degrees. The teeth slide up and down in both directions on the shaft which means there is dual resistance of motion.
The push on fastenersin these kits are made from enamelled steel or thermoplastics depending on the load requirements of the equipment used.
Industries that make products using axles and shafts such as automotive, medical and consumer goods make use of push on fasteners.
These fasteners are also found in assembly environments like toy manufacturing or furniture construction.
Push on fastener kits include different sizes of open or capped fasteners:
