Most items are generally ex-stock subject to quantity and prior sales.

Specials and certain non-stock items are marked accordingly.

FDB multi-angle lid and door stay

It can be surprising sometimes just how many variants of a simple design are available – take the humble cover or door stay for example – we have in stock adjustable ones, telescopic ones, vibration proof types and wind stops – oh and steel or stainless steel. So whether for convenience or for health and safety reasons our stays can help the specialist panel builder support a door or prop a cover to enable safe access with a quick and simple locking mechanism. See our Online shop or contact us for more.

FDB one stop shop for Panel ComponentsWhile putting together our Online store it was interesting to notice how many really useful miscellaneous items we have in our catalogue and because it is a section that is rarely viewed we thought it worthwhile to pay it a little attention in our blog – in the hope that it will help customers to find “that important little widget or thingamyjig”.

So we found that our miscellaneous section contained:

Spring bolts, dust caps, anti rotational device for locks, finger pulls for locks, cam slider to reduce damage and friction, corner gasket radius adapter, bridge clamp, slide bolts, drawing pocket, multi angle stay, dual ball catches, Snapline uninstall tool, escutcheon covers, retaining rings, serrated earthing washer, mini/small and large lid stays, magnetic catches, a non magnetic touch latch and a roller catch.

Many of these items we note are exactly the sort of thing that our Rocfast Assembly & Logistics service is increasingly finding appropriate to prepackaged service component packs, which we deliver all around the world for onsite installation where you want to be sure you have all the parts you need but are a long way from a source of supply.

It is ideal for applications experiencing shocks or vibration in situ. It is considered suitable for commercial vehicles, off road/agricultural vehicles, railway rolling stock, also for enclosures for telecoms, commercial and street furniture and industrial equipment.
