Stud covers are protective covers that push fit into weld studs or insert studs to provide insulation between a PCB (printed circuit board) and the chassis. Stud covers are typically made of non-conductive materials such as nylon, which is corrosion free, lightweight and offers good insulation.
Stud covers often have a quick and easy lock and release mechanism, and come in different sizes and dimensions to fit various PCB hole diameters and thicknesses. Fitting a stud cover involves simply pushing the cover onto a stud and turning it to lock it into place.
In addition to providing protection, stud covers also give the final product a neat and finished look. They are designed to conceal the insert or weld screw while providing a clean appearance.
You will find stud covers in electronic circuits, typical PCB applications and electronic devices. They can also be used in high-voltage assemblies.
