Street lighting, car boot linings and van seating share very little in common, on the face of it – yet recent times have seen Bollhoff Fastenings’ innovative QUICKLOC fastener specified for all three applications.

Providing a quick-to-install and secure fastening for mounting components and panels, QUICKLOC is a push-in fastener which locks on a quarter turn of the head. A wide variety of head styles is available to cater for most applications and the range includes a popular version designed for use without the need for any tools at all: it is locked by finger and thumb.
