Components Direct is committed to providing you with the best possible service. This page aims to help you understand how to use the information published on this website.

Dimension & Load Values

All dimensions shown are in millimetres unless otherwise stated.

Where overall dimensions are shown these are generally rounded to full millimetres. Decimal points are carried only where it is important for the fit and function of the component.

Load values refer to static condition only unless otherwise stated. Varying conditions and environments can result in different load values therefore we recommend that tests are carried out using samples supplied by us.

All dimensions and technical specifications are subject to change without notice; improvements to tooling, design and finish are carried out constantly. If these improvements affect the fit or function of a part that you already take from us we will advise you of the change.

Metal Finishes & Statutory Requirements

At Components Direct we pride ourselves on keeping abreast of the various Environmental and Health & Safety issues that affect us. In the near future our parts and corrosion-resistant finishes will have to comply with statutory requirements such as the End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV), Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives.

With this in mind, we have taken the decision to omit the finish details of metal fasteners from this edition of our catalogue. Our Sales department can advise you which finishes are readily available for a particular part and will consult our Technical department in order to advise on suitable alternatives, particularly if environmental issues are involved.


Drawings, CAD data, Initial Sample Inspection Reports (ISIR) and Certificates of Conformity (C of C) are available on request.

PPAPs and other types of specialised Quality Support documentation can be supplied where applicable. There may be a charge for this service. Please contact us for further information.

Suitability for Purpose

Please note that while we make every effort to ensure that the information published on this website is accurate Components Direct cannot be held responsible for any errors, typographical or otherwise. This includes 3D CAD model data.

Drawings and images are for reference only and should not be used for product specification.

For new applications we recommend that you carry out assembly tests using samples supplied by us.
