A lightweight, compression limiting, pre-captured fastener assembly that minimizes hoop stress and eliminates debris formation during installation.

Features and Benefits

Compression Limiting

Protects substrates by limiting compression in the assembled joint.

Direct Push Installation

Reduces insertion effort and eliminates plastic debris through ribbed design.

Optimized for Hoop Stress

Allows for thin-walled plastic designs by localizing boss stress around external ribs.

Enables Lightweighting

Achieves ~50% weight reduction over other comparable metal solutions due to thin-walled design.

Ready-Set Pre-Assembly

Installs and retains in substrate with optional pre-captured bolt/stud prior to final assembly.
