Tog-L-Log® is a process known as clinching which cold-forms the part metal using a special punch and die to form a strong interlocking clinch joint. The result of this process is a round, button shaped extrusion on the die side of the assembly, and a small cylindrical cavity on the punch side. The clinch joint requires only the sheet metals that were joined. No external fasteners, or welding is utilized in the process.
