Stay-Put provides temporary, dependable retention for fasteners or other components prior to and during the assembly process.

How it Works

Stay-Put offers “customized fastener retention solutions” that allow the fastener(s) to be held in place (in most cases without affecting the end assembly) while an operator easily completes the joining process. Call today for an expert “efficiency analysis” by ND’s experienced engineers and see how Stay-Put will ensure the most efficient end product fabrication possible.


Speeds Assembly

By combining auxiliary attachments using Stay-Put, the result is a reduction in the quantity of parts involved and less difficulty in the assembly processes.

Reduces Inventory

Pre-assembled auxiliary attachments allow the combining of part numbers resulting in less paperwork and the reduction of shipping costs and storage space.

Consistent Results

ND has a wide range of materials available to meet your exact application needs, including those that involve ferrous and non-ferrous metals, solvents, oil, gasoline, acids, water, salt, and extreme temperatures.

Reduces Operator Fatigue

Stay-Put increases overall procedural ergonomics and decreases the number of tasks required to assemble the end product.

Versatile Formulas

Depending on the application requirements, ND has a wide range of materials to select from including polyamides, adhesives, UV curable compounds and more.

  • Easy Assembly: Stay-Put is dry to the touch and yet pliable enough to allow assembly by hand.
  • Saves Money: Customers that that use temporary retention devices will see productivity increases which directly lead to cost savings.
  • Versatile: tay-Put can be applied to both threaded and non-threaded assemblies.
  • Environmentally friendly: Stay-Put is non-toxic.


  • As with all our Pre-Applied products, ND Industries can apply Stay-Put to your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with completed pre-applied fasteners.
  • Indefinite on part life under ideal storage conditions [+40°F (+4°C) to +90°F (+32°C)], but re-certification must occur once a year.

Temporary Fastener Retention

Stay-Put allows the fastener(s) to be held in place while an operator easily completes the assembly process.

Unit Adhesion

Stay-Put can also be used like a glue, bonding a number of auxiliary components together.

Pre-Assembled Auxiliary Components

Use Stay-Put to combine numerous parts or auxiliary attachments into one easy-to utilize unit.
