Socket Head Cap Screw Short Image

Socket head cap screws are the solution for tight clearance, light weight and secure fastening. These screws are the best choice for applications with limited installation access or clearance. Yet if you have an application with a lot of debris, you may want to select a hex head bolt or hex head cap screw, as they don’t have a socket drive which could get clogged. Extreme Bolt & Fastener offers both normal and low profile socket head cap screws.

•  Ideal for applications with limited access as they require very little clearance around the fastener and no additional wrench space.
•  Socket head cap screws can be used in locations where externally wrenched fasteners aren't desirable.
•  Weight reduction on application – the compact cylindrical heads of socket screws are smaller and lighter than hex heads.
•  Known for safety, reliability and economy.
