Benefits of button socket cap screws

A type of cap screw that commonly secures the mating parts or panels of an assembly or upper-level tool. Button socket cap screws feature a cylindrical head with hexagonal drive hole. Most of the time, the screw head is clean. The absence of stampings or markings offers a smooth, aesthetically pleasing appearance.

An Allen wrench or hex key is used to drive a button head socket cap screw into components’ holes. Tightening occurs when torque is applied to the screw head.
