Metal Thumb Screws with Plastic Head

  • Plastic Head Thumb Screws | Metal Thumbscrews | Plastic Head Screws

Plastic head thumb screws have a nylon head and a stainless steel or alloy steel body that is either fully or partially threaded. They are designed to be easily installed and adjusted by hand and are commonly used in household and industrial applications.
 
Metal thumb screws are manufactured with different head styles including round heads and rosette heads that are flat and have a textured or knurled surface for easy gripping. The unique design of plastic flat head thumb screws makes them ideal for applications where parts need to be adjusted regularly or will undergo regular maintenance. Since nylon is not as durable as stainless steel, it is not recommended that plastic head thumb screws are used for heavy-duty applications.
 
Benefits of plastic flat head thumb screws are that they are lightweight, cost effective and can be used for a wide range of light duty applications in industries such as consumer electronics, computers, food, medical, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and more.

Important Considerations for Selecting a Plastic Head Thumb Screw

Select from a stainless steel or alloy steel thread, depending on your application. Round head thumb screws with an alloy steel thread are durable, but do not provide corrosion resistance. If your round plastic thumb screw will be exposed to the elements or corrosive substances, you should select a thumb screw with a stainless steel thread.
 
Measurement considerations for selecting a metal thumbscrew include:
  • Head diameter
  • Head height
  • Thread
  • Thread length
  • Screw material
