When searching for the right type of fastener for the job, we are sure that Kayfast will have the right solution for you. Our vast range of screws of all types and sizes should be your first stopping point when preparing for a job, and if you call us we will make sure you get the right advice.

Socket screws are one of the most popular screws across all types of building, engineering and home improvement applications. The name comes from the head shape of the screw, which has a hexagonal recess in it to fit a hexagonal key or more popularly, an Allen key. The most typical and most useful application for the socket screw is when a fastener is needed in an area of limited space. Here, there is no room to manoeuvre an externally wrenched tool and so the ‘socket’ in the head of the screw acts to create the leverage required.

The advantage of using socket screws

The advantage of the socket screw is that it can be screwed or unscrewed using this hexagonal key, so there is no need for bulky tools or wrenches. You should also get an extremely good clamping force, so you typically need less screws for a particular job, which subsequently means less drilling and less weight in your final piece.

At Kayfast we are experts in the use and selection of screws for all types of application, so we can recommend when the socket screw is applicable as your fastening solution. We also carry most standard types and sizes in stock so we should have no problem supplying you as soon as possible.

Countersunk socket screws are perhaps the most popular design. They are designed to leave a flush finish when fully screwed in and hence provide a cleaner and smoother appearance, where this is important. Button socket screws have a domed head and hence will protrude from a surface when screwed in. This is still a smooth finish but where appearance is critical a countersunk screw may be preferable. There are also lower profile button screws, with a smaller dome, which can help with aesthetics. Another popular socket screw is the grub screw, also known as a ‘headless’ screw.

Our socket screw selection

Our socket screws are available in stainless steel, zinc plated or self colour, fully threaded – with BSW, UNC or UNF thread patterns - and high tensile, designed to be robust and to withstand years of pressure and torque. You can talk to us about our range of sizes and designs and we can make a recommendation about the size of screw you are likely to need.

So whatever application you are undertaking, speak to the experts about your socket screw requirements. You can also take advantage of our no minimum order quantity policy. This means that you only need to order the exact amount of screws you need, and if a bag quantity says 100 but you only need ten, you only need to order ten.

Kayfast are established in the industry as a trusted and reliable fastenings supplier, so give us a call today and we can supply your needs quickly and cost-effectively.
