Southco Expands Captive Hardware Line with Miniature Spring-Loaded Plunger for Limited Space Applications
CONCORDVILLE, Pa. — Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has recently expanded its captive hardware line with the addition of a miniature plunger designed for use in limited space applications and minimum 0.8 mm thick panels. The new 56 Miniature Spring-Loaded Plunger enables quick-access fastening in tight spaces, and is available with an over-molded head that can be used to designate access through an array of standard and custom color options.
Similar to Southco’s standard 56 series, the 56 Mini offers simplified positioning of sliding components, simple installation and quick-release for easy removal. Press-in and flare-in styles and stay-open/non-stay-open options provide versatility for fastening and unfastening by hand when mounting doors, panels and other hardware components in applications where space is limited.
Global Product Manager Jim Grady adds, “The newest addition to Southco’s captive hardware line is 25 percent smaller than the standard 56 series, and features the same reliable retractable pin design that permits simplified positioning of sliding components. An optional over-molded head allows engineers to easily designate access points or color code access to the requirements of the application.”
