Additional Cleco Fastener Information

Wing-Nut Cleco fasteners are used in many different industries, but most commonly in aviation and automotive work. They’re often utilized to temporarily hold together multiple sheets of material (such as aluminum or sheet metal) during the fitting process. Here’s a basic guide on how to use them:

Mark your material: Begin by marking the points on the material where you want the Cleco fasteners to be placed.

Drill the holes: Using a suitable drill bit, drill a hole at each marked point. Be careful not to enlarge the hole too much. The hole size should match the Cleco diameter.

Prepare the Cleco fastener: Wing-nut Cleco fasteners have a spring-loaded mechanism. You would typically use a Cleco pliers to open the fastener. However, with wing-nut Clecos, you open the fastener by simply twisting the wing nut counterclockwise. Do this until the jaws at the other end open up.

Insert the Cleco fastener: Place the opened Cleco fastener into the hole that you’ve drilled. Ensure that the Cleco’s jaws are on the underside of the material, gripping it from beneath.

Tighten the Cleco fastener: Now, you can tighten the wing nut clockwise until the Cleco is firmly in place. It should hold the material together securely, but without causing damage. Be careful not to overtighten.

Check the alignment: After the Cleco is in place, you can check to make sure that your material is aligned properly. If not, loosen the wing nut, adjust the materials, and then tighten the Cleco again.

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

Remember, Clecos are temporary fasteners, so once your permanent fasteners (like rivets or bolts) are in place, you can remove the Clecos. To do so, simply turn the wing nut counter-clockly until it’s loose enough to remove from the hole.

And that’s it! Using wing-nut Cleco fasteners can be a great way to ensure that your materials are perfectly aligned before you make any permanent attachments. Be sure to use the right size for your material and project to avoid any damage or inaccuracies.
