AR-4610 Line Plastic - Push-to-Lock, Quarter Turn to Open

Push-to-Lock Stud Picture

AR-4610 Line plastic fasteners consist of a receptacle which is self-retained in a square hole in the fastened panel, and a stud within the receptacle. AR-4610 Line closes by pushing the stud inward with finger pressure. It opens with a quarter-turn of the stud, using fingers, a coin, or a hex key, depending on head style. In closing, AR-4610 Line passes through a square hole in the support material, where its four prongs lock as they are expanded by the stud.

Although this is a small fastener, AR-4610 Line is designed to stand up to frequent use on lightly-loaded access panels. Its prongs are rugged and the low-profile head is both unobtrusive and well-protected against accidental damage.

AR-4610 Line studs and receptacles are packed separately. The receptacle is easily snapped into a square hole from the panel front, and it is self retained. The stud is then pushed into the receptacle until a retaining detent is felt to be overcome. A small plastic mallet may be convenient for stud insertion. The fastener is now ready for use.
