Sheet-Metal Screws

Grip-Lite screws, designed for thin sheet-metal applications, provide tight assembly with increased strip-out torque for improved joint strength. For safety, a radius point eliminates the sharp point that can cause injury, cut wire insulation, and prevent the screw from drilling its own hole if the assembly is misaligned. Assembly cost is lower as there is no need for expensive nuts, clips, inserts, or tapping operations. The screws come in standard head styles in diameters from #6 through 5/16.
