"Sock-it"-new and innovative way of securing a fastener

[Category : - Automotive Accessories ]
[Viewed 1394 times]

A socket and drive member used in a manufacturing process for driving fasteners is coupled together using an elastic sleeve. The sleeve is placed on one of the socket and drive and then positioned to cover a joint created when the socket and drive member are coupled together. The sleeve uses friction and/or vacuum to maintain the connection at the joint, thus removing the need for fasteners to maintain the joint connection.

This is the new and innovative way of securing a fastener to a drive shaft assembly. (Or any two piece assembly which may require attachment) Currently Manufactures will use an O-ring and pin to assemble the fastener to the drive. The problem with using the O-ring and pin is that the O-ring will...through time, deteriorate and breakdown, leading to the pin falling out and the assembly falling apart. The solution..."use the Sock-it method...which is easy to install, easy to remove, and will reduce unnecessary downtime.

Financial information
