One usually thinks of two components as part of the ZLoc® Fastener, the Stud and Spring Receptacle. In the case of the EHF Ejector Series Stud, it is retained in the panel, when unlocked by the flange being fastened to the outside panel. Standard ZLoc® Studs, typically use a Stud retainer to prevent them from falling from the panel when unlocked. Two common retainers are the GP (Nylon) washer or the GA (for Oval Head Studs) or GF(for Flush Head Studs). GP (Nylon) Retainers require no installation tooling. GA and GF Grommet/Retainers require tooling to install. GP (Nylon) Grommets do not figure into Total Thickness calculations whereas GA or GF Grommets add .028 to Total Thickness Calculations.
