Plastic press fasteners
Plastic press fasteners include flat press fasteners as well as plastic double rivets and ratchet fasteners. All plastic press fasteners are easily assembled manually or with a plastic hammer.
Flat press fasteners are ideal for small applications. Plastic double rivets and ratchet fasteners are more suitable for larger capacities. An advantage of the ratchet fastener is that it can easily be combined with a ball chain for hanging purposes.
Please note that all plastic press fasteners on this page form a permanent connection! For re-closable models please check our press buttons.Go to Plastic press fasteners
Plastic press fasteners – What are the sizes?
Flat press fasteners are suitable for smaller applications and can only be used for small capacities. The fasteners are available in the following capacities:

Plastic press fasteners – Usage & Assembly
Flat press fasteners are most suitable for small applications such as fans. You can easily assemble them by clicking the two parts together.
Plastic double rivets and ratchet fasteners are mostly used for swatches or larger fans, similar to binding screws. They are however not equipped with thread but can be assembled by clicking them together manually or with a plastic hammer. Ratchet fasteners are also ideal in combination with ball chain that can be led through the length of the tube.
All three types of plastic press fasteners create a permanent connection. The two parts attach themselves to each other. They cannot be compared to press buttons on clothing which can be opened and closed frequently. These can be found on a separate page.
