Quarter turn fastener selector tool

Oddie Fasteners offers designers a useful tool to optimise the selection of quarter turn fasteners for machine access panels


The Oddie Fasteners selector tool provides design engineers with a speedy route for choosing the correct quarter turn fastener in a choice of 4.5mm, 6.5mm and 10.5mm hole sizes for light, medium and heavy-duty applications respectively. Having selected the desired hole size users can then specify head type with a choice of slotted, Allen key, wing head or low profile wing head types, the latter two options for finger operation rather than requiring tools.

A further option provided by the selector is the ability to specify the finish required, with a choice of bright chrome, bright nickel, Delta black or Zinc/clear before submitting the query and viewing the results. Selection and ordering is straightforward and if application or other advice is required the company’s staff are on hand at its Brierley Hill manufacturing plant.
