Fastener family extends

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

The family of Atlas Plus+Tite blind threaded steel inserts has expanded with a newly introduced version featuring a straight shank design.

This fastener joins Plus+Tite pre-bulbed inserts in offering superior pullout resistance when installed permanently in plastics or thin sheet metal. Both types provide reliable and reusable threads for "blind" attachment applications, including tubing and extrusions, where only one side is accessible for fastener installation and component assembly. A single mating screw completes the final attachment process.

Atlas Plus+Tite inserts can install permanently into single, variable, or multiple-thickness materials as thin as .020" / 0.50mm. The straight shank design will accommodate a smaller mounting hole and the pre-bulbed inserts will require less installation load.

Both install from the accessible "front" side of a component. Installation can be accomplished anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field using either a spin-pull tool or spin-spin tool, depending on insert type. A shoulder on both styles serves as a self-locating feature.
