Title
(EN) SIMPLIFIED INSTALLATION CAPTIVE PANEL FASTENER
(FR) FIXATION DE PANNEAU PRISONNIERE A POSE SIMPLIFIEE
Abstract
(EN) A simplified captive panel fastener including a head, shank, a threaded outer end, and a centrally threaded opening at the outer end. Longitudinal slots extend along the outer end of the fastener to receive a retention washer with inwardly extending prongs. The method of mounting the fastener to its desired location and locking a retention washer and fastener in place is easily performed by employing a tool which disposes the threaded mating part, for example, a screw or bolt, into the central threaded opening of the outer end of the fastener. The head of the screw or bolt has radial extent sufficient to block the slots and prevent loss of the retention washer. Only a common screwdriver is used to mount the retention screw or bolt in the end of the fastener.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une fixation de panneau prisonnière simplifiée comprenant une tête, une tige, une extrémité extérieure filetée, et une ouverture centralement filetée à l'extrémité extérieure. L'extrémité extérieure de la fixation présente des fentes longitudinales permettant de recevoir une rondelle de retenue pourvue de fourchons tournés vers l'intérieur. La procédure pour poser la fixation à l'emplacement voulu et pour bloquer en position la rondelle de retenue et la fixation s'exécute facilement, grâce à un outil qui place la contrepartie filetée (vis, boulon) dans l'ouverture centrale filetée de l'extrémité extérieure de la fixation. La longueur du rayon de la tête de la vis ou du boulon est suffisante pour bloquer les fentes et empêcher la perte de la rondelle de retenue. Un tournevis ordinaire suffit au montage de la vis ou du boulon de retenue dans l'extrémité de la fixation.
