340 Lock (Includes 3/16" Mounting Screws)


340 Lock (Includes 3/16" Mounting Screws)

The 340 Lock is mainly used mount wall panels using a field installed furring system.  The versatile 340 Lock is our thinnest fastener, it can be cut down to 5/16" thick and will fit into a 3/8" deep hole.  The 340 Lock is a compression insert panel-fastener used to mount any type of panel directly to either the panel or the furring.

The 340 Lock is a light duty, one piece, injection molded insert fastener designed to push in and down to lock the panel into place. The Nylon 66 fiberglass-reinforced body and steel mounting screw withstand repeated removal.  

The 1” holes can be quickly drilled with a 1” Forstner bit.  Our 211 Alignment Pins 3/16" can be used to mark your panels for the location of the (included) 3/16" Mounting Screws. The 211 Alignment Pins 3/16" also work with the 230 Epoxy Mount which will then "snap" into place in the 340 Lock.  The 340 Lock fits the 3/16" Mounting Screw which fits into a 5mm pre-drilled hole. 913 Pilot Drill, 5MM Center Point Drill & Stop (available).The panel is pushed in and down to lock the panel firmly in position.
