Product overview

• Plastic snap-in stand-off that eliminates the need for nuts and bolts when mounting printed circuit boards etc• Made from UL approved nylon 66, 94V-2• Supplied in packs of 10

The bottom snaps permanently into a chassis hole 5mm diameter in any chassis with a thickness 1mm to 2.5mm. The top snaps into a 4mm diameter hole in the printed circuit board, allowing the PCB to be easily removed and re-fitted as required. This stand-off provides mechanically secure, insulated mounting, yet boards can be quickly removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine I needed some replacement PCB stand offs as the gas man broke the ones supporting 2 PCBs in the central heating system, and his repair involved sticky tape! These worked fine, and secured the PCBs so they were nice and rigid. The right tool for the right job and a single packet was more than enough to secure 2 PCBs. I may buy another packet to have some spares just in case the gas man gets heavy handed again in the future.

How do these work(how do you remove circuit board once mounted on these supports)?

Asked by: Adiaz
The stand-offs have a small area at each end that can be compressed thus narrowing it's overall diameter. Typically the circuit board has a hole drilled in it that is just slightly too small for the end of the uncompressed stand-off to fit through. When pressure is applied the end compresses allowing the stand off to pass through the circuit board, once through the standoff expands again and secures the board in position. To remove the board you have to reverse the process by applying pressure to the end of the standoff (typically with long nose pliers or similar) in order to compress it enough to allow the circuit board to once again pass over the compressed part and be released. If you do not intend to reuse the stand-off you can simply cut the top of the stand-off from the stalk, this will allow the board to be released without any fuss.
