What is a socket screw?

Socket screws are a type of threaded bolt which screws into the intended socket. There are various thread sizes and lengths and are used for both industrial and personal purposes. Due to the high tensile strength of the steel used, applications which are worry free of corrosion, will continue to secure parts together for a number of years. A reliable RS Pro socket screw ensures the fixing will remain strong and stable, whatever the application.

What are socket screws used for?

• Fasteners and fixings
• Machine tooling and repair

What type of head do these screws have?

As standard, this entire range comes with hexagon cap heads built onto the screws. Meaning a hexagon key/Allen key will need to be used to fully secure the screws into their corresponding sockets.
