These standoffs, which use the proven self-clinching design, install with a squeeze in properly sized round holes - and become permanently mounted in the thin sheet.

Types SOAG and SOSG grounding standoffs are designed for clinching into steel or aluminum chassis while the “gripping teeth” on the opposite end of the standoff firmly contact mating PC board.

If you require a standoff which we do not offer in this bulletin, please contact us. We will be happy to work with you to satisfy your special need.

For special lengths greater than 12mm, Types SOSG and SOAG are blind threaded.
