Shear-loc Thumb screw knobs
* Zinc / Think Stainless.
Zinc and cad electroplated socket head cap screws have always had two inherent problems
which are hydrogen embrittlement and the possibility of the class 3A thread diameter
exceeding gage limits. You should always take in consideration that when a screw is plated
that its pitch diameter will be increased by approximately 4 times the plating thickness.
( .0002 = .0008 ). To eliminate both of the above potential problems let us quote and
furnish samples of our standard stainless screw line. For more information call 800-775-5668.
