1/4 turn fasteners for OEM overhead
« on: February 22, 2017, 08:43:08 PM »
Hi everyone.
I'm planning to install a real 737 overhead frame into a FDS shell. I'm looking for ideas to make use of the 1/4 turn fasteners already in the overhead frame. I have the overhead install kit from fds but they don't use 1/4 turn fasteners but just screws. I will need the corresponding receiving connector. I notice they can be bought of eBay or hardware sites. But there are so many types and sizes...
Has anybody done this before? Any tips will be appreciated.
Thanks
Ethan

Those are called Dzus fasteners.  When you order your overhead panels from FDS just tell them you are using a real overhead frame and would like your panels to have Dzus fasteners installed.  They will charge extra (and not cheap) but well worth it.

Thanks but what I referring to is the fasteners that connects the frame to the shell. As seen in the pictures.

Oh, I see.  Yes, those are camlocs and you need the appropriate sized camlock receptacle.   I have a real overhead panel and the FDS shell.   I bought a set of camloc receptacles for mine from Aircraft Spruce.  They worked like a charm.

Scott, you don't perhaps remember which size camloc you bought?

Hi Scott
I ordered the parts as you described above. But they are too small. Are you sure that is the correct part number. There are others on their website. Maybe you sent me the wrong numbers.
Thanks. Ethan

Well I originally ordered two different sizes and one size was too small and the other was correct.   I thought I had given you the correct one but apparently not.   I apologize.   These are the 2 types I ordered.

C-SPEC MS212-12N 2600/2700 RECPTACLE

214-16N CAMLOC 4002 RECEPT # 214-16N

So I guess it must have been the second  one  :-[
