- Button Head
Button socket cap screws offer a wider bearing surface but low profile like other socket cap screws. Socket cap screws are commonly used in machine parts, die fixturing, and clamping with insufficient space for wrenches or sockets.
- Low Socket Head
Low socket cap screws are designed to be used in applications where head height is a problem. Because of their reduced head height and smaller socket size, they cannot be preloaded as high as a standard socket head cap screw.
- Socket Set Screws
Set Screws, also know as grub screws, are blind (headless) fasteners with an internal hex drive. It is this drive style that classifies stainless steel screws in this selection as set screws, which are driven by a hex key or bit . They are used to tightened and hold an exterior object in place within or against another object, via friction.
- Flat Head
Flat socket cap screws are commonly used in machine parts, die fixturing, and clamping. The flat socket head enables driving where there is insufficient space for wrenches or sockets, and allows the screw to sit flush.
- Socket Cap
Socket cap screws feature a head height equivalent to the shank’s diameter. Socket cap screws are commonly used in machine parts, die fixturing, and clamping. The socket head enables driving where there is not sufficient space for wrenches or sockets.
- Socket Shoulder Bolts
Socket shoulder bolts, Also known as stripper bolts or pulley bolts. Shoulder bolts are screws with an un-threaded shoulder that is larger in diameter than the threads. The shoulders of this type of screws are ground for tight tolerance, which means these screws are perfect for pivot points and axles.
- Hex Keys
A hex key, Allen key or Allen wrench is a tool used to drive bolts and screws with hexagonal sockets in their heads. Used with socket type fasteners where there is not sufficient space for wrenches or sockets.
- Socket Jam Screws
Socket jam screws are used to lock set screws, springs, and controls into tapped holes. The full length hex socket permits access from either end or visual inspection of the locked part. The controlled socket dimensions give good wrench-ability for reuse.
- Square Head Set Screws
Square head set screws screws are long stud bolts that use tension to hold a part in place, or to jack up a part into position. They incorporate an hydraulic connection and use the hydraulic power to hold the part in place.
