Clinch Studs

Clinch studs are metal fasteners used in sheet metal fabrication to create strong, threaded mounting points in thin materials. They feature a threaded shaft and a knurled or ridged base that, when pressed into a prepared hole in the sheet metal, deforms the surrounding material to securely lock the stud in place. Commonly used in the automotive industry, clinch studs provide a reliable, space-saving, and efficient attachment method without the need for welding. They are quick to install, enhancing manufacturing efficiency while ensuring robust and permanent connections.
