Designed to offer a permanent female or male thread across a wide range of critical applications, TR’s Hank® Self Clinch products come in a range of shapes and sizes, including threaded clinch studs, clinch nuts, standoffs, panel fasteners and pins. High pull-out and torque tolerance and available in various materials and plated finishes.

Hank® Rivet Bushes

TR’s own Hank® Rivet Bushes are designed to add load bearing female threads in thin sheet metal. Offering the best torsional and pull-out resistance, this range includes round, hexagon, standoffs, mini round, Tank and Swage manufactured in a variety of materials. Only TR Fastenings manufactures the genuine Hank® Rivet Bush.

K-Series® Nuts

The company’s K-Series® nuts provide a strong and permanent female thread for sheet metal and some plastic applications too thin to be tapped by usual methods. The K-Series® standard and thin nuts can be installed using a standard press. Once fixed, they offer a strong fixing and permanent thread with a high prevailing torque and pull-out resistance.

Installation by riveting

Sheet metal blind rivets and blind rivet nuts can be assembled on or off site, with access required from one side only and are installed using manual, electric or pneumatic tools.

Blind Rivets

The range includes open, sealed, multi-grip, peel and grooved blind rivets. The installation tool is used to draw the mandrel into the rivet, which expands the blind end and causes the end of the mandrel to snap off. Subsequently, the stem ejects to form a tight joint.

Blind Rivet Nuts

Available as reduced, flange head and countersunk types with either a knurled, plain or hexagon body, TR’s sheet metal rivet nuts offer strong female thread in blind applications and high push-out and torsional resistance.

Installation by Capacitor Discharge welding

K-Series® Nuts

TR’s weld products are welded to sheet metal using an electric Capacitor Discharge (CD) gun with access required from one side only.

Weld Nuts

TR’s Weld Nuts provide a strong female thread and are suitable for thin sheet metal, available in steel and stainless steel, in hexagon (DIN 929) or square (DIN 928) styles.

Weld Studs

The CD Weld Studs, installed using a CD gun, provide a strong male thread in thin sheet metal. Pin welding adheres the stud to the sheet metal without the requirement of a pre-punched hole. Weld studs are installed on one side of the metal fabrication and offer quick installation, high joint strength and a permanent fixing.
