Quick-release systems


Quick acting fasteners.

Quick fasteners for rapid assembly and disassembly

FAST TURN is widely used where rapid assembly and disassembly is required.

It is a strong system, yet simple to use. It consists of a hardened steel stud, a plastic retainer and a spring steel, slip-on receptacle that only needs to be clipped onto the opposing panel, completing installation in seconds. The fastener, which has strong anti-vibration qualities, only requires a quick half turn to operate. When undone the retainer captivates the stud to the released panel, so it will not be lost - a vital requirement where regular servicing access is required.

Detailed description



  1. Seitliches Aufschieben des Verschlussunterteiles an das zu befestigende Bauteil. Einbauvorgaben sind zu berücksichtigen.
  2. Aufgeschobenes Verschlussunterteil.
  3. Führen des Verschlussbolzens durch eine entsprechende Bohrung und Sicherung mit einer Haltescheibe gegen Verlieren.
  4. Beim Verschließen wird der Verschlussbolzen unter leichtem Druck über die Kurvengeometrie in das Verschlussunterteil eingedreht. Durch das kurzfristige Stauchen des elastischen Bereiches können die Rastnasen des Verschlussunterteiles in die Hinterschnitte des Verschlussbolzens einrasten.
    Die Teilegeometrie hält ihn spielfrei in seiner Position.
  5. Beim Öffnen durch eine Vierteldrehung nach links wird der elastische Bereich des Verschlussunterteiles erneut gestaucht, so dass der Verschlussbolzen wieder freigegeben wird.
