These are strongest threaded fasteners allowing a real holding force.
It is smaller than other bolts, which acquires small space to fit.
Loosened and tightened only using Allen key and no other hand tools.
It withstands vibration and extreme environmental conditions where common screws could fail.
High quality metal screw with anti-corrosive.
Applications of Socket Screws are
