A variety of high quality hardware options for every need

Hardware provides options when there is little to no access to the backside of a part after installation or in place of tapping in thin or soft materials. We are proud to offer a variety of PEM(R) fasteners:



Self-clinching studs are designed to be a permanent fastener in your assembly made to withstand high torque, stress and weight in a variety of  applications


Press fit nuts are internally threaded with a knurled outer diameter providing a lightweight, simple option for parts that are too thin to be tapped.


Press fit standoffs provide a secure, threaded fasting with uniform spacing between parts.
