Rivet nut versus caged nut
« on: August 25, 2019, 11:20:50 AM »
Hi!

Can a caged nut resist tensions or forces the same way as a Riveted nut?

I ask this, because i am considering using caged nuts instead of riveted nuts for frontal/side panel mounting for the 1u/ half rackmetal boxes i am designing.

Maybe It is a bad idea, but i want to have opinions on this.

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

After a bit of search i found this link.:

https://www.canford.co.uk/CANFORD-RACKPANEL-HALF-RACK-WIDTH-Blank-rack-panels

It seems a good solution to use caged nuts to hold 2  half rack front panels.. instead of machined aluminum pieces like the RND half rack blank panel. So i will continue  from here..

Caged nuts are more robust than riveted nuts, and they can be replaced if the thread is damaged. They take more space, though.
