Tool-free 19in rack fastener replaces captive nuts

Rittal has introduced a fastener that replaces captive nuts when installing equipment in 19inch racks.


Attachment is by hand without tools, and it can be used with every enclosure in the Rittal product range straight away. It is available as a pre-assembled 1U support with three captive nuts, including centre attachment, to standard EIA 310.

Held in place by a thin spring in front of the mounting face, the product is designed for repeated dismantling and reuse.

“Integrating three captive nuts within the mounting profiles in just one click saves time, and nerves”, said Rittal product manager Clive Partridge.
