New Unthreaded Standoffs from PennEngineering Designed for Quick Attachment, Removal

Manufactured from carbon steel in 0.125, 0.250 and 0.375 in. and in metric lengths 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 mm. Designed to permanently mount on PCBs that enable quick attachment and removal of stacked components without using tools. Offered in barrel design that allows for stacked board or panel to be slipped easily into place and detached by sliding the components sideways and lifting off.
