Cap Screws - Low Head

In stock In production

This range of Cap Screws are available in a choice of hexagonal drive or torx drive. Hexagonal drives are ideal for precision assembly and are ideally used where less surface area is available. Torx drives provide a positive-engaging, fast-locating technique for transmitting drive torque with less necessary downward pressure. These Cap Screws are available in a choice of two low head options: ultra low head and extra low head.

The first of these options helps reduce the screws overall head height space, which means no countersinking is required, unlike flat head screws. The second option has an extremely low profile, and does not need a countersunk location hole. These screws are suitable for machine and equipment applications, with minimal clearance.

Cap Screws are commonly used with Threaded Captive Washers (sold separately). The screws are made from austenitic Stainless Steel that provides good resistance to corrosion and machinability. The material is a popular choice for construction and automotive applications.

  • Low head reduces the screws head height space.
  • They require no countersinking unlike flat head screws.
  • Corrosion resistance.
