Floating access fasteners compensate for thread misalignment

PEM floating access hardware introduced by PennEngineering include a captive screw assembly for permanent installation into panels of any hardness with the capability to compensate for up to .060 in./1.52 mm mating thread misalignment. The licensed MAThread anti cross-threading screw technology adds value by correcting off-angle installations and reliably aligning components. The floating panel fasteners (Type PF11MW with knurled cap and Type PF12MW with smooth cap) enable subsequent access to an assembly.
