Attach or Remove Panels in Seconds with the 151F Push Lock Fastener
Attach and remove plastic or sheet metal panels with ease using the 151F Series metal push lock fastener by Sugatsune America. This large fastener allows you to expand the functionality of any space with ease. Once installed, your attachable plastic panel or sheet metal locks into place with the simple push of a button.
These fasteners sit flush against the panel when locked into place, and are suitable for use in manufacturing, heavy equipment, healthcare, food equipment, and many other settings. They are compatible with panels of differing thicknesses.
This model, 151F-01-2, is the metal-type variant. A corresponding resin-type variant made of polyacetal is also available, 251F-01-3.
Convenience and Ease of Operation
These plastic panel and sheet metal locks have a simple design that consists of four main parts: a plug, retaining ring, socket, and nut. The plug and retaining ring attach to the removable panel, while the socket and nut go into the underlying structure.
Once you have completed the installation, you can attach and remove panels in just a few seconds. To operate the push lock fastener, simply insert the plug into the socket and push it in to engage the lock. Push it again to disengage the lock.
Design Features Add Reliability and Usefulness
The lock sits flush when engaged, which prevents snagging risks and obstructions.
The locked cam ensures that the panel will not come unfastened due to vibration, giving you a secure hold even in turbulent use conditions.
- Plug Dimension: 13/16” (20.5 mm)
This is the height of the plug from top to bottom.
- Grip Dimension: 3/64” – 5/64” (1.2 – 2.0 mm)
This is the distance between the bottom of the widest part of the plug and the top of the socket.
- Retaining Force: 55 lbf (25 kgf, 245 N)
- Weight: 1.8 ounces (51 g)
