Button Head Captive Screws are useful in a number of safety-oriented applications and are required by European Union law on some equipment such as safety guards.
They are high precision safety fasteners that host an unthreaded section below their head, which is often referred to as a reduced shank.
Once installed alongside a Threaded Captive Washer, they are unable to be fully removed from their installation hole.
Found across a number of types of industrial machinery, where a lost or loose screw could cause catastrophic damage to a production line. They can also be found in certain military applications where speedy removal and reinstallation of panels is required.
Manufactured from A2 / 304 Stainless Steel and A4 / 316 Stainless Steel as standard, with specialist materials available to order including Titanium, Aluminium, and Brass.
