microPEM® TackScrew™ Fasteners


  • Simple, press-in installation for secure attachment.
  • Twist out (unscrews) if removal is necessary.
  • Replaces micro screws, eliminating installation issues including:
         - Cost of locking patch
         - Cost of threaded insert or tapped hole
         - Cost of driver bits
         - Cost of rework due to cross-thareding and driver bit "cam-out"
  • If removed, fastener can be reinstalled one time using permanent thread locking adhesive.
  • Can be installed automatically for high volume applications.

THFE™ Heavy Duty Studs For Thin Sheets


  • Enlarged head diameter reduces stress on panel.
