How they work: When pressed into a hosting metal, displace the material around the mounting hole. This causes a “cold flow” into a specially designed recess that accepts the component. The self-clinching action is typically achieved by applying force. Most types use a clinch-ring, knurl, ribs, or hex head to prevent movement after installation.
