Detail & Specs
M3 Metric Torx Button Head Socket Cap Screw, Stainless
Button head cap screws are great for limited space installation areas. Use a torx drive wrench to install these screws. The slim design of a torx socket wrench allows access to tight locations where a traditional external hex drive bolt would not fit. The smooth head design gives a neat, professional finish free from sharp edges, great for furniture an automotive applications.
Torx drive screws provide higher torque transfer because the driving forces are transferred to each surface of the six lobes (wobble-free), instead of the four edges of the four edges on a phillips drive. Additional benefits include less wear on tools and no damage to the stainless steel surface coating.
Torx drive button head screws are fully threaded, meant to engage with a tapped hole. They can be used with many different styles of locking and non-locking nuts, tightly clamping together whatever the cap screw is being used to secure.
Commonly used in damp environments for corrosion resistance, popular across a wide range of industries: automotive, outdoor furniture, agriculture, architectural components, food processing, clean energy, etc.
For any application involving marine (salt water), use A4 / 316 Stainless Steel material, available as special order.
