Testing Self Clinching Standoffs

I’ve recently been looking at better ways to mount a PCB inside a metal enclosure. Primarily I’m interested in ways that don’t require screws protruding from the bottom.

I found these self clinching standoffs on Fastenal’s web site, and figured I’d give them a try. Normally they’re installed using an automated press, but I gave it a shot with the cheap Harbor Freight press I’ve got.

Apologies for the vertical format video. Handling the camera, the metal, and the press at the same time was a bit unwieldy.
