Imagine you’re on a scaffolding 15 feet in the air attaching bulky lights to a track of Unistrut channel and you’re using one hand to hold a channel nut in place inside the strut, while you’re using your other hand to hold the light and try to screw the bolt through the housing for the light and into the channel nut…think another hand might come in handy? Not to mention, what happens if you drop the channel nut…or the light?!? There are channel nuts with springs, which hold themselves in position inside the channel so you don’t have to, that would have made this job significantly less difficult.
Channel nuts with coiled springs don’t work so well for every application though, if you are using a piece of the channel that has perforations on the backside the springs can be difficult to slide within the channel, getting stuck along the way. Money might be an issue too, channel nuts without springs tend to be a little bit less expensive, and if you’re standing at a workbench pre-installing fittings to a length of strut before you bring the assembly to a job site you might opt for a springless channel nut.
