          Jack Nut, #12 X 1/4" X 13/16 inserted length

A jack nut, when used together with a machine screw, creates a stronger fastener than a single sheet metal screw. It is similar to the effect of a drywall fastener, which spreads larger on the inside as you screw the machine screw into it, until it creates a larger backing than you would get with a sheet metal screw. This is important when fastening products that may have undue pressure put on them in an emergency. These include items like keyed cam latches that hold the rear doors closed on horse trailers. It takes no more than a electric screwdriver to apply a jack nut system, but you will have to drill a slightly larger hole (3/8" diameter) than if you were mounting the same product with a sheet metal screw. Pair a 14X20 machine screw with this jack nut.

*We received a "negative" comment/review on this product, and the problem was that the old product we had was too short to properly fasten on a thicker wall. Since then, we now offer a longer jack nut in the same size, that is designed to work on a wall up to 1/4" thick. This should be the thickness of a trailer skin & wall stud edge combined.
