Standoff fasteners

PEM unthreaded Keyhole and Snap-Top standoff fasteners mount and detach PC boards, panels, or components without tools or hardware. Both fasteners provide secure and reliable attachment, reduce or eliminate the risk of loose hardware damaging internal circuitry, and allow “screwless” designs of subassemblies.

Keyhole Type SKC stainless-steel self-clinching standoffs let PC boards or panels be slipped quickly into place and removed from an assembly by simply sliding the board sideways and lifting it off. Use with a single threaded standoff further improves security.

Snap-Top Types SSA, SSS, and SSC aluminum, steel, and stainless-steel standoffs clinch into metal sheets and Type KSSB brass standoffs broach into PC boards. The fasteners use a spring action to hold boards and panels securely, while allowing quick attachment and removal using a simple snap-on/snap-off operation.

All install permanently in sheets or panels as thin as 0.040Ÿin./1 mm by squeezing them into a properly sized hole.
