Floating nut plates are low profile and lightweight nut plates used to install a captive nut behind a panel. The floating nut plate (aka anchor nut) allows for an assembly that is not perfectly aligned.

They are available in different Unified thread sizes, with plain or countersunk rivet holes on each side and come with or without a dry film lube.
