Use on composite or metallic assemblies, with frangible collars or STARLITE™ lightweight titanium nuts

The pins have a recess on the threaded end to hold the pin from rotating as a threaded collar is progressively tightened, allowing “clamping-up” of the work pieces prior to final collar “torque-off.”

One-sided installation using conventional power tool

The pins have a recess on the threaded end to hold the pin from rotating as a threaded collar is progressively tightened, allowing “clamping-up” of the work pieces prior to final collar “torque-off.”

One sided installation pins are available with a hex or new ASTER™ recess on the threaded end. This last recess allows higher torque resistance for a more robust assembly process; this new feature is mainly suitable for assembly in clearance on composite assemblies.

ASTER™ system

The one sided pin installation started with the HI-LOK™ System combining the benefits of the rivet and bolt-nut system with major improvements for the airframe industry. Our strong commitment to research and development evolved this system into today's HI-LOK™/HI-TIGUE and HI-LITE™ fastening systems.
