The typical construction for a PCB stiffener is a rectangular bar with drilled and tapped holes. Most PCB stiffeners are just that, but drilling and tapping holes in a bar is expensive. The Universal Stiffener with screw mounting, reduces this expense with design that will accept a screw anywhere along its length.
