Purpose. To determine the assembly/disassembly
Applicability. This procedure applies to any joint using a snap-in fastener that is installed by the application of axial force without the use of mechanical tools.
This procedure evaluates the performance of a snap-in fastener when subjected to loads, constraints, and environments representative of the installation or disassembly process.
• Option A of this procedure is a general procedure to record all performance data representative of the installation or disassembly process.
• Option B is a specific method to identify the Press-in Force and Retaining Force of a snap-in fastener.
Unless otherwise specified, any requirements or direction provided in the Test Request documentation will supercede this test procedure.
