Self‑Retaining Threaded Cage Nuts

Self-Retaining Threaded Cage Nuts

For quick assembly in blind or center‑panel locations, self‑retaining threaded cage nuts are available in a variety of materials and finishes. These fasteners install easily with no special tools, provide tight joints, and facilitate easy automation in high volume assembly. They can be found in anything from server racks to appliances.

Easy Assembly

Place the cage nut on the back of the rail, insert one tab into the hole. Then use a flat‑head screw driver or an insertion tool to pry the other tab through the hole. If threads become damaged, cage nut can be easily replaced.

Do not mount on front side of rail

Caution!

Don't mount the cage nut on the front side of the rail. When cage nuts are mounted on the front side, the weight of the attached component rests on the tabs.
