New, Tool-less Clik-Nut™ Cage Nut Reduces Labor and Installation Time by at Least 70%
August 15, 2016
The recently released Clik-Nut™ Hardware Kit by Chatsworth Products (CPI) addresses the fundamental challenges of installing and removing traditional cage nuts. Standard cage nut hardware can be difficult and time-consuming to install or move. Installing cage nuts requires force that exceeds what can be reasonably applied by human fingers. Consequently, installers routinely suffer from pinched fingers, ripped or detached fingernails. CPI’s Clik-Nut Hardware Kit solves these issues.
“Anyone who has ever used cage nuts will attest they are not easy to install or remove. They are difficult and painful to install without a specialty tool; the tool is always missing when you need it, and no tool works well for both installation and removal. The increasing number of requests to install these at the factory combined with general customer comments over the years motivated us to take a second look,” stated Sam Rodriguez, CPI Sr. Product Manager of Cabinet & Thermal Solutions.
The patent-pending, squeeze-and-release design eliminates the need for tools, resulting in easier and faster installation by at least 70 percent. To use, simply align the Clik-Nut with the desired mounting hole, squeeze and release the tab. The Clik-Nut will then be fastened in place and ready for equipment mounting.
Advantages of the new product include:
• No tools required – squeeze-and-release design allows for easier, faster and safer installation
• High payload capacity – same strength and reliability as standard cage nuts
• Universal usability – fully compatible with .375” (9.5 mm) EIA square-punched holes
