Nylon & Brass Tip Socket Set Screws at Empire Bolt & Screw

Socket Set Screws are headless screws, fully threaded from end to end.  They contain a hex (socket) drive on one end and a specific type of point on the other.  Socket Set Screws are found in many assemblies containing rotating features such as wheels, collars, gears or pulleys, where these components need to be locked onto a shaft. Socket Set Screws provide that locking mechanism.  They work by exerting compressional force through the screw point to prevent movement between the object and the shaft.  They are available in a wide range of diameters, lengths and materials, as well as point styles.  The application itself typically determines the most appropriate point style.  Considerations in point selection may include materials involved, the relative hardness of components, the frequency of adjustment or disassembly, along with many other factors.

Nylon Tip Socket Set Screws are identified by a flattened, protruding nylon tip.  The rigid yet soft nylon grips curved or textured surfaces.  It can also provide vibrational resistance without damaging the shaft material, as other point styles are prone to do.

Brass Tip Socket Set Screws are identified by a flattened, protruding brass tip.  The soft brass tip indents to the curvature of the shaft, thereby locking it in place.  The brass material is ideal on hardened mating surfaces where no resulting damage or marring of the internal component is desired, as other point styles may be prone to do.
