Die Co. J-nuts can attach two sheet-metal panels quickly and easily – in place of welding. The nut clips to the edge of one panel and stays in place as a screw is driven into the J-nut, securing the panels to each other. An extrusion on the J-nut’s retaining leg grips the mounting hole, keeping the nut affixed to the adjoining panel. J-nuts allow movement to accommodate panel misalignments.

J-nuts weigh less than other fasteners, yet still provide a strong, reliable hold. No special skills or tools are required for installation or removal.
