Plain, Zinc, HDG & GR.5 Hex Cap Screws
A hex cap screw has a clipped head and a washer face on its surface. A hex screw and a nut look the same, this means they are not tapered. They can be used to fasten two objects together by placing the screw from one end and tightening it with the nut on the other side. It’s commonly used to secure metal to metal, wood to wood, wood to metal, and metal to wood objects.
How to use a hex cap screw
Hex cap screws are suitable for securing objects as the washer face offers a good bearing after fastening it with a wrench or a socket. These screws are used in a variety of applications that need threads to tighten with nuts. Hex cap screws come in different types and they range from grade 2 to grade 9, which happens to be the highest grade of alloys.
A hex cap screw and nut work by friction process that occurs when you tighten the nut, meaning you compress them together. Sometimes, while fastening the nut, it will turn along with it. If this happens, you will need a second wrench or spanner to hold on to the screw while tightening the nut which is at the other end.
