A customer was looking for a way to fasten an aluminum extrusion to an aluminum end plate for use in a lighting application.
Driv-Lok’s ENGINOMICS® team designed and produced a fastener that combined two of our technologies- a Knurl on one end and a Barb-Lok on the other. This allowed the customer to easily install the plate onto the extrusion,securely holding it in place while using only one type of fastener. The new fastener also eliminated the need for expensive driving equipment, saving the customer money.
• Two-way design resists pullout
• Increases speed of assembly
• Reduces boss fractures
• Eliminates expensive driving equipment
