Enjoy the precision of Camloc fasteners on panels originally drilled for Dzus quarter-turn fasteners!
Aeroloc fasteners bridge the gap between the vintage look of Dzus EHF5 fasteners (5/16" studs with diamond-shaped backing plate) and the modern durability and 700 pound working strength of Camloc fasteners. The stud and plate assembly is designed to replace the Dzus EHF5 assembly perfectly, so you don't need to patch holes or replace panels. Just remove the Dzus assembly and the receptacle spring, and rivet the Aeroloc assembly and receptacle in their place!
The stud assembly consists of the stud, spring-loaded tensioning barrel, and spring-loaded backing plate. The backing plate spring provides a self-ejecting action similar to Dzus fasteners. A bail handle (1.1" ring) allows quick fastening without tools, and the handle folds out of the way when not needed. The rivet pattern (2x 1/8" holes on 1 1/16" centers) matches the Dzus fastener plates, so there are no new holes to drill. The rivet holes are countersunk for a flush installation. (Note that the countersink requires a minimum 1mm / 0.0394" panel thickness.)
This -09 length stud measures 0.86" long overall. It is designed for use with either the Standard Aeroloc Receptacle (Part No. ALC205-1000) for grip lengths from 0.260" - 0.290", or the Short Aeroloc Receptacle (Part No. ALC205-3000) for grip lengths from 0.530" - 0.560". Receptacles are sold separately. Stud assemblies are sold individually.
Grip is the total thicknesses of the panels to be fastened together, plus any gap between them (for rivet heads, etc).
