Retaining fasteners in a joint or a mating component until final assembly can provide significant cost savings to the OEM’s by eliminating manufacturing steps, improving efficiency, and reducing inventory. Forest City Technologies offers several widely utilized, proprietary solutions for fastener retention.

Axi-Rad® Retention Device
Axi-Rad is a patented thermoplastic retention device that is assembled to a bolt and, when mated with the assembly component or casting, will retain the threaded bolt in place until final assembly. Utilized in more than 20 countries on 5 continents around the world, Axi-Rad comes in standard and special sizes, and can be purchased in bulk or assembled to your fastener.
