Some of the advantages of this type of push nut are as follows:

Because the angled teeth of the PT Pushnut bridges over several screws threads, a Pushnut bolt retainer slides down smoothly, eliminating the ratcheting action which is characteristic of other push-on fasteners which fit into the threads. Round shape and low profile are economical of space. The flexible teeth fold flat when the second panel is tightened over the style PT fastener. Only 0.115 to 0.020 inches of thickness is added to the assembly.

A style PT fastener holds firmly at any point on the threaded or unthreaded portion of the bolt shank, even when not seated against the panel. The part must be broken for removal. It cannot be threaded off.

Because a style PT fastener grips the OD of the screw thread, it functions properly, irrespective of the pitch or number of threads per inch for a given bolt diameter. 

Style PT retainers permit final assembly by either the "turn screw" or "turn nut" method.

Fast, easy assembly with applicator tools assures correct concentration of application force on the fastener flange, and facilitates assembly
