The DZUS D9 Tech Line Quarter-Turn Fastener combines Southco’s proven quarter-turn and captive fastening technologies to create a next-gen solution that provides consistent, reliable clamping force and quick access.
Featuring a captive, spring-loaded design and tool-free operation that provides accurate, secure engagement and vibration resistance, the DZUSD9 Tech Linehelps to prevent damage caused by over tightening the fastener.

Additionally, the DZUS D9 Tech Line is available with a standard bright metal or ‘prism’ coloured head that can be used to designate access through an array of standard and custom colour options.

Its captive, spring loaded design provides a set amount of clamping force when fastened, preventing hardware from becoming damaged by over tightening.”
