Captive Cage & Nut Assembly
Cage nuts are manufactured with a stainless steel or spring steel outer shell and a floating encapsulated square nut made from either steel or stainless steel. The combinations are usually :- steel cage/steel nut, stainless cage/steel nut or stainless cage/stainless nut.
They are suitable to fit into either square or rectangular holes and eliminate the need for welding, clinching or staking.
They are easily installed using pliers to close the 'ears' of the cage. Releasing the 'ears' allows them to expand and grip the panel with access from only one side of the panel (or blindside).
With the floating action of the nut within the cage its make them an ideal solution for panel misalignment.
The most common application of a cage nut is within 19” Rack Mounting systems (computer cabinets).
The range we offer is available with metric threads, although for minimum manufacture quantities (usually 50000) we can supply imperial threads upon request. We can also offer A4 (316 grade) stainless steel cage and nut assemblies made to order.
