Explanation of the Hardy-Built® Fastening System

What is it?

The Hardy-Built® Fastening System is an engineered, patented device attached to panels and bases that form a container when assembled. These are strong, quick to assemble, rigid boxes which are knocked down when they are to be stored or returned empty. The system provides for maximum repeat usage without damage to the container.

How does it work?

Weather resistant steel plates are secured to the edges or corners of the panels. When the two panels are placed edge to edge, the plates opposing each other are connected by a spring clip (see figure 1). The hook end of the spring clip, HBS-IV, is hooked into the HBS-I or HBS-II plate and snapped into the opposing HBS-III plate.

As Assembled:

Corner Assembly: Comprised of 1 HBS-I corner plate, 2 HBS-III strike/catch, and 2 HBS-IV spring clips. The hook end of the spring clips are inserted in the HBS-I corner plate and snapped (locked) into the HBS-III strike/catch (see figure 2).

Edge Assembly:Comprised of 1 HBS-II bracket/angle and 1 HBS-III strike/catch, this assembly is held together by one HBS-IV spring clip. The spring clip hook end is inserted in the HBS-II bracket/angle and snapped (locked) into the HBS-III strike/catch (see figure 2).
