Vented Dog Point Socket Set Screws are made to DIN 915 standards and have a hexagonal recess that is driven using a hex wrench or insert bit. The hexagonal recess makes these screws more efficient that slotted screws as the hex socket drive has more resistance to cam out and can be used with power drivers – which enables faster use and higher torque.
These screws are headless, meaning that there is no head projecting past the major diameter and making it a fully threaded fastener.
Used in applications to secure objects together, within or against another object, the socket drive of the screw is turned until it meets the inner object before exerting pressure on the inner object creating a clamping force.
Commonly known as socket grubscrews, they are available from Fastenright in hardened Steel 45H and A2 and A4 Stainless Steel.
With thread diameters from M3 to M30 and lengths ranging from 3mm to 120mm.
Non-standard sizes and materials are available to order, including custom parts made to drawings.
d3 dimension can be to customer specification.
