1. A fastener, for connecting a first component having a first hole to a second component having a second hole, comprising
a cage which is fitted at its end with a radial flange and further a cross-sectionally rectangular or square shank segment, said shank segment being insertable into the second hole of the second component, said flange resting against the associated side of the second component,
a nut that is at least partly axially received in the cage and that is rotatable from a first rotational position in the cage into a second rotational position and moreover is fitted with an axial borehole to receive an affixation screw and also comprises at its outside the diametrically opposite wing elements, where, upon rotation of said nut from the first into the second rotational position, said wing elements will be pulled on account of the affixation screw's rotation in the nut against the other side of the second component, a head of said affixation screw resting against the first component and compressing latter against the cage flange,
the cage and nut are made of molded plastic, the hole is square or rectangular and the wing elements of the nut are situated in the first rotational position within the contour of the cage and in the second rotational position, will radially project beyond said cage contour against a stop of the cage.

2. Fastener as claimed in claim 1 , wherein the nut further comprises a cylindrical segment between the wing elements, said cylindrical segment comprising at its end facing the flange an annular collar and the cylindrical segment being insertable into the cage, where the collar cooperates with a peripheral inner shoulder of the cage, as a result of which the nut is rotatably supported between the rotational positions.

3. Fastener as claimed in either of claims 1 and 2, wherein the annular collar is fitted with an external, conical face, the cylindrical segment being insertable by means of said collar into a partly cylindrical passage of the cage.

4. Fastener as claimed in one of claims 1 through 3, wherein the nut and the cage are molded separately.

5. Fastener as claimed in one of claims 1 through 3, wherein the nut is molded integrally with the cage but may be sheared off it, the integrated nut being situated in the first rotational position relative to the cage.

6. Fastener as claimed in one of claims 1 through 5, wherein the shank is fitted with a clearance at its end opposite the flange and the nut comprises an axis-parallel locking segment running in the direction of the cage and engaging the clearance in locking manner when the wing element nuts are being pulled toward the second component, thereby precluding the nut from being rotated back toward the first rotational position.

7. Fastener as claimed in claim 6, wherein the locking segment is fitted with a ramp face cooperating with an edge of the clearance in a manner that the wing elements are compressed against the associated stops when the locking segment enters the clearance.

8. Fastener as claimed in one of claims 1 through 7, wherein the cage is fitted with a least one protrusion such as a barbed hook at its external side, said protrusion being temporarily deformed when the cage is inserted into the second hole and cooperating in locking manner with the side of the second component facing it if subjected to a force to pull it out of said second hole.
