Rapid Cage Nuts

What are cage nuts?

A cage nut consists of a spring steel cage which wraps around the nut.

How does it work?

The cage has two side wings, when compressed, they allow the cage to be installed into a square hole, for example, in the mounting rails of equipment racks. When the wings are released, they hold the nut in position behind the panel.

Benefits over threaded holes

  • choice of nut sizes easy to install
  • if a screw is over-tightened, the nut can be replaced, unlike a pre-threaded hole
  • cage nuts are easy to use in thin or soft panels where it is difficult to make a threaded hole
