Southco has published a full-colour A4 leaflet that outlines what it claims to offer the world's widest range of captive (retained) and quick-access fasteners. As well as describing the various product types, the literature also contains a design guide that helps specifiers and designers select the optimum quick-action fastener for any application.
Having purchased the Dzus brand, Southco's range now includes:
Customers also have a broad choice of head style (both hand-operated and for tools), receptacle type and accessories. If required, Southco can customise products.
To request a copy of the leaflet email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.southco.com/dzus and go to the online Quick Access Design Guide to configure a fastener, view detailed product information and animations, and download 3D CAD files.
For machine builders, the need for retained fasteners is now greater than ever, with the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC requiring fasteners for fixed guards to remain attached to guards or the machine once the guard is removed.
