Important Considerations for Selecting a Plastic Head Thumb ScrewSelect 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 length
- Screw material
