Fasteners for 5mm Welding Studs

They’re made from very durable Acetal. We also have Weld Stud Fixing Cable Ties made of black Nylon to attach the engine wiring harness.

Retain on Trim Panel Clips

Designed for the Automotive Industry, these Retain on Trim Panel Clips  hold plastic panels to the A, B and C pillars of a vehicle. They are also used for facias and dashboards. Interior panels have to be fixed securely in place but easy to remove for maintenance, repairs or at the end of the product life cycle. Retain on Trim Panel Clips are quick to use and provide a snug, rattle free installation. You can use them with rectangular studs or moulded ribs. When the panel is removed the unheaded version of the clip stays on the panel. The Retain on Base Panel Clip remains on the base panel but separates easily from the panel.
