Socket Solutions for Every Application

Many of our socket products are stainless steel, or alloy steel with a black oxide or zinc finish. They are available with coarse or fine thread options, as well as in metric sizes.

  • Socket head cap screws have a smaller head with a hexagonal drive. They often are used with machine parts where there is limited space for wrenches, as they are driven in with a hex key. They provide a stronger hold than conventional screws.
  • Button head socket cap screws have a round button head and are ideal for light-duty applications and clamping due to their tensile strength.
  • Flat head socket cap screws are used in applications where the screw head will sit flush with the surface. They provide a cleaner finish, as they can be covered and thus not visible.
  • Low head socket cap screws have a shorter, round head, and can be used in tighter spaces where head height would be an issue. They have a high tensile strength yet should not be used in projects that experience dynamic loads.
  • Metric sockets are available for when hardware with metric measurements is required. Available products include socket head cap screws, button head socket cap screws, flat head socket cap screws, hex keys and socket set screws.
  • Socket shoulder screws, also called “stripper bolts,” are commonly used in machine designs that allow parts to oscillate and pivot. These screws can be used in punch and die applications.
  • Socket set screws do not have a head cap and can sit flush or imbedded into the materials. They are available with flat, cup, cone or pointed heads.
  • Socket pipe plugs are ideal when closing the end on fittings and pipes. They have a low profile to fit into tight spaces.
  • Hex keys/Allen wrenches are small, manual wrenches used on hex key sockets to drive in screws. They also are available in sets to provide a range of short-arm and long-arm wrenches that will fit a variety of sockets.
