Strut channel nuts are used to place and secure fittings, electrical panels, junction boxes, or piping clamps within channels or conduits. They consist of a nut with grooves on the side that fit over side of the channel edge and a screw hole. Tightening a screw in the nut causes teeth in the grooves to lock into the channel edge, holding the nut in place.

 

The Dale Company offers flat, J, U, and rectangular spring nuts. Strut channel nut packages include end caps, washers, fittings, angle bolts, splice channels, and other accessories for different applications.
