Socket cap hardware products are typically tightened with an Allen wrench, but they are also available in many other socket styles. The socket head enables the screws to be driven in areas with limited clearance or insufficient space for tightening with a hex wrench or socket wrench. Socket cap screws come in many varieties, including cap screws, button head versions, and flat head versions that allow the screw head to sit flush on the surface.
We also offer socket head shoulder bolts, which feature an unthreaded shoulder that is wider in diameter than the threads. The cylindrically-shaped shoulder allows for rotational movement of joined parts in mechanical and other types of assemblies. Also available are socket head set screws, which are typically driven in pre-cut holes and used for holding objects in place through force.
