Socket cap screws are typically made out of alloy steel and are used in applications where strength is important. They all install using a hex key and if they are headed, the head is a smaller outside diameter than a typical fastener. Socket Set Screws are often used for adjustments and come with a wide variety of points. Square Head Set Screws are also used for adjustments, but don't install with a key, but a wrench.
These products are available special order in a wide variety of materials (steel, stainless, brass) as well as with special points including cup, knurled, dog, full dog, oval, and cone points to name just a few. We can provide them with patches, pellets, and brass tips also.
