Additional Cleco Fastener Information

Hex-Nut Cleco Fasteners are commonly used in construction and assembly where temporary holding of materials is required before final fastening. They are similar to wing-nut clecos, but are designed to be operated with a hex wrench or socket wrench, making them ideal for tighter spaces or automated processes. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use Hex-Nut Cleco Fasteners:

Mark the Material: Identify the locations where the Cleco Fasteners will be placed and mark these spots on your material.

Drill the Holes: Use an appropriate drill bit to make a hole at each of your marked points. The size of the hole should correspond to the diameter of your Cleco Fastener.

Prepare the Cleco Fastener: To open a Hex-Nut Cleco Fastener, turn the hex nut counterclockwise using a suitable hex wrench or socket wrench. This will open the jaws at the other end of the Cleco.

Insert the Cleco Fastener: Position the Cleco fastener into the drilled hole. The jaws of the Cleco should be on the underside of the material, gripping it from below.

Tighten the Cleco Fastener: Turn the hex nut clockwise using your wrench until the Cleco Fastener is firmly securing the material. Be cautious not to overtighten the Cleco, as it could potentially damage your material.

Check Alignment: With the Cleco in place, check the alignment of your material. If adjustments are needed, loosen the hex nut, reposition your material, and then retighten the Cleco fastener.

Repeat for Additional Clecos: If you’re using more than one Cleco fastener, you should repeat this process for each one.

Remove the Clecos: Once your permanent fasteners (like rivets, screws, or welds) are in place, you can remove the Cleco Fasteners. Simply turn the hex nut counterclockwise until it’s loose enough to remove from the hole.

Remember, it’s important to use the right size and type of Cleco for your specific project and material to avoid damage and ensure accuracy.
