Spacers and Standoffs
Spacers and standoffs are hollow tubes that connect two components while creating a specific distance between them. These fasteners are commonly used to position parts within an assembly, isolate electrical components, and give room for heat to dissipate. Spacers are unthreaded for applications when a screw or bolt must pass completely through the spacer. Standoffs are threaded so components can be screwed into both sides to combine materials.
