When selecting finishes, select the RoHS compliant finishes. They are better for the environment and less expensive!

Ejecting Blades

Ejecting blades provide a simple and reliable means of stud ejection. The ejected stud is retained in proper alignment for locking, yet completely clears both support and panel holes.


For Size 3 Studs:

There are two styles of Ejecting Blades for the Size 3 Studs. The 1224-159, 1224-159-1 and 1224-1031-1 Ejecting Blades require a retainer to hold the stud. The 1224-721 Ejecting Blade has a split in the end with the hole smaller than the stud end. This allows the Ejecting Blade to clip over the undercut of the stud and to act as the stud retainer.

The 1224-159, 1224-159-1, 1224-1031, 1224-1031-1, and 1224-721 Ejecting Blades add .015 in. (0.38 mm) to the total pileup calculation.

Note: When our existing supply of Cadmium plated parts is exhausted, DFCI Solutions, Inc will no longer offer Cadmium plating as an option.

In place of the Cadmium plating, we recommend:

Clear: Zinc Trivalent Clear .0003 thick. Trivalent Chromate Clear with Sealer (RoHS Compliant)
Specification(s): ASTM-B-633, Type III, SC 2, Clear
Suffix: -Z3CT

Black: Zinc Trivalent Black .0003 thick. Trivalent Chromate Black Dye with Sealer (RoHS Compliant)
Specification(s): ASTM-B-633, Type II, SC 2, Black
Suffix: -Z3BT

Yellow: Zinc Trivalent Yellow .0003 thick, Trivalent Chromate Yellow Dye with Sealer

We recommend the Z3CT finish instead of the Z3YT finish. The Z3CT finish is much more cost effective and provides the same salt spray benefits as the Z3YT finish. (RoHS Compliant)
Specification(s): ASTM-B-633, Type II, SC 2, Yellow
Suffix: -Z3YT

The colored finishes offer no advantage over the clear other than the color, and they are more expensive.
