What’s a button socket cap screw? 

It’s a cap screw with a cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. Button socket cap screws have clean heads with no stamping or marking, which provides a smooth, finished look.

Typically, an Allen wrench or hex key is used to drive a button head socket cap screw into the holes of two or more mating parts. The components are secured together by applying torque to the screw’s head.
