Fasteners Used in Custom Displays

Building any type of display requires quality fasteners. Whether your product is a freestanding unit, tabletop display, or another design, fasteners ensure each component is joined securely. Screws, nuts, bolts, and other fastening products attach unit shelving and side panels, secure price channels, and so much more. Associated Fastening Products offers an extensive range of fasteners, crafted to ensure the durability of custom displays.


Screws are the ideal product for reliably securing important components. When correctly installed, screws ensure your product remains sturdy and well-assembled, even under heavy-duty usage. Our screws are available in an extensive array of head types, thread sizes, and lengths to meet the needs of diverse applications.


When using bolts, nuts ensure your product remains firmly assembled. We offer many nut types, including both standard and specialized options:

  • Button Thread Nuts (Kwik Nuts)
  • Nylon Grommet Nuts
  • Knurled Thumb Nuts
  • Plastic Wing Nuts

Rivets & Push Fasteners

Quick-fitting fasteners significantly reduce the assembly time of both temporary and permanent displays. Since they are able to be installed faster than other products, you can enjoy increased productivity. We offer both plastic push rivets and solid rivets in a range of material options.

Materials for Custom Display Fasteners

Our custom display fasteners come in a variety of metallic and non-metallic materials. Our team can help you determine the best material for your budget and performance needs.


Metal is the best option for applications that demand durability and strength. In general, metals can easily endure the demands of transport, high loads, and being moved frequently. We can help you select the most suitable type of metal for your cost and performance requirements.

Some of the most common metals we work with include:

  • Aluminum: This lightweight, corrosion-resistant material offers reliable durability and can be alloyed with other elements for improved performance.
  • Brass: Brass is corrosion-resistant and provides an attractive finish that improves the aesthetics of retail displays.
  • Bronze: An alloy of copper, tin, and zinc, bronze provides higher corrosion resistance than stainless steel and is stronger than brass.
  • Stainless Steel: Stainless steel fasteners provide strength and corrosion resistance, even if scratched during installation or use.
  • Steel: Steel grades 2, 5, 8, and alloy steel are common options for fasteners due to their durability and reliable performance.


Plastic fasteners provide a high strength-to-weight ratio as well as excellent chemical and corrosion resistance. Their low moisture absorption makes them an excellent solution for live event stages or outdoor signs that must endure exposure to the elements. We work with many plastic materials, including:

  • Nylon
  • PTFE
  • PVC
  • Vinyl
  • Vulcanized fiber
