In order to get sheet metal to stick together and create sturdy objects, builders need to use the appropriate materials and fasteners. Technically, 'Cleco' is the brand name of a type of fastener, but it's come to refer to a specific type of sheet metal bolts. They describe a type of temporary fastener that holds multiple materials together tightly. This allows for sheet metal placement, adjustment, and drilling before rivets can be installed into the metal. These temporary fasteners are the equivalent of someone holding fabric together with pins prior to sewing. They hold the materials together and are easy to remove once the sheet metal is permanently being held together.
