General Information on Composite Clip Nuts
Composite Clip Nuts
Composite clip nut fasteners allow you to quickly and easily mount parts and materials—simply slide them on and they snap in place. This design eliminates the need for tooling and reduces labor costs usually associated with riveting, clinching, or staking fasteners.
Strong, lightweight, corrosion resistant, and more cost-effective than stainless steel or titanium, composite clip nuts are ideal for use in aerospace, aviation, and other industries. Request a quote on clip nuts for contact Marketing Masters to learn more.
