What Are Metric Socket Cap Screws?

Metric socket cap screws are one type of cap screws that have a round head and an Allen drive hole. They are a kind of threaded fastener, and the head of these screws has a diameter about 1.5 times larger than a screw's shank diameter.

These screws come in different steel options depending on your needs. For example, if you need moderate corrosion resistance, high-strength treated alloy steel such as zinc works well. Stainless steel metric cap screws are the ideal solution for saltwater and chlorine environments. A steel black oxide finish can also give your metric socket cap screw a matte black color that also helps resist corrosion.

Compared to ordinary fasteners, you need fewer metric cap screws of the same size to get the same clamping force in a joint. Since this requires fewer screws, you don't have to drill and tap as many holes in a job.
