The Hucktainer fastener consistently provides proven joint strength, vibration resistance and overall durability. It has been uniquely engineered for use in structures fabricated from fibreglass reinforced plywood, metal-clad polymer core panels and other reinforced panel structures. Because Hucktainer has been designed to distribute force over a wide area, it will not crush, craze or bull-nose composite panels.

Available Sizes: 3/8"
Materials: Steel
Plating Specification: J63 (only available from Star Fasteners)

Maintenance free Hucktainer fasteners
In addition to high strength and vibration-resistance, Huck fasteners are maintenance free. There is no re-torquing or retightening needed as with traditional nuts and bolts. This establishes Hucktainer as a superior value fastener; its lower maintenance requirements are reflected in negligible associated on-costs. Huck fasteners deliver a better life cycle value through reduced warranty claims and longer life.

Simple fastener installation
Hucktainer’s fool-proof installation ensures that fasteners are installed in seconds. The two-piece Hucktainer fastener has been proven to be reliable and vibration resistant in many applications and are also used in the assembly of side panels and bulkheads.
