Quick-Access Fasteners Hit the Track

June 3, 2004
Dzus Raceline fasteners are the first quarter-turn panel fasteners specifically designed for motorsport racers.


They resist shocks and vibrations and feature self-retaining studs, long-life floating receptacles, lightweight mounting plates, and can be used with metal and composite panels. Raceline Studs come in three styles. Retained versions use a rivet-secured mounting plate and spring for positive stud ejection. A Ball Dent option snaps into panels and is self retained. Standard versions install into panels with no retention. All styles come in two sizes, each with lengths of 0.5, 0.55, 0.6, and 0.65 in. Head options include flush 1/4-in. hex recess, flush slot recess, oval slot recess, and wing and D-ring for manual actuation.
