Captive screws basically are specially designed to lock into position in a hole, enabling easy setting up and removing of the attached pieces even without the complete removal of the screw.
SEMS Screws are screws preassembled with free spinning washers. The assembly typically contains one plain washer and one split spring washer.
Ultra-thin head screw that are 77% thinner than conventional pan head which makes possible flat external surface and contributes low-profile design and weight saving.
The Torx compatible drive is a reliable method of fixing screws. Also known as the 6-Lobe drive this drive can take more torque and does not slip.
The PAN Head provides a very good and tight joint.
The countersunk head is useful to provide a flush level finish to the assembly.
The hex socket screw drive has a hexagonal recess and may be driven by a hex wrench, also known as an Allen wrench, Allen key or hex key, as well as by a hex screwdriver (also known as a hex driver) or bit.
They are commonly referred as Allen Screws. Tamper-resistant versions with a pin in the recess are available.
