Torx (TX) Countersunk Reduced Thread Captive Screws are typically used for safety-critical applications and are required in various types of machinery under EU law.
These screws host an unthreaded portion below the head, otherwise known as the reduced thread. Once installed, often alongside Threaded Captive Washers, they are held “captive” within the target housing and cannot be fully removed.
The hexalobular Torx or 6 Lobe TX drive offers a reduced risk of cam-out compared to conventional drive types. If additional security is required, 6 Lobe Pin Torx Countersunk Captive Screws feature a Pin TX drive for increased tamper resistance.
TX Countersunk Reduced Thread Captive Screws require a countersink hole for installation, allowing the fastener to sit flush with the installation surface for an aesthetically pleasing finish.
