The alloy steel set screw with black oxide finish has a hex socket and cup point, and meets Deutsches Institut für Normung DIN 916 specifications. Alloy steel is often used in applications where strength is the primary consideration. The black oxide finish offers mild corrosion resistance and lubricity. The hex socket drive has a hexagonal slot that requires an Allen key driver, also known as a hex key or Allen wrench. The cup point has an edge that grips the mating surface with enough power for use in permanent and semi-permanent applications.
Set screws hold objects in place by use of pressure at the point, and are often used in semi-permanent applications and where fine adjustment is needed. Set screws are available with a variety of point styles, which determine how the screw interacts with the object it is placed against. These threaded fasteners typically do not have an external head.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I use them on my battery backup power system where the batteries came with screws to hold down the jumpers from battery to battery. I use these set screws in combo with wing nuts which are easier to screw onto these set screws. They also cost about 20 cents each in bulk. They can cost well over 60 cents each. I got 10 of them at Home Depot for 98 cents each and you couldn't get them in bulk. Awesome deal!
