Self Tapping Screws
Self-tapping screws are threaded fasteners that have a sharp point and a unique thread design that allows them to tap their own hole when screwed into a material. This eliminates the need for a pre-drilled hole, making them a convenient and time-saving option for many applications.
Self-tapping screws come in various sizes, materials, and head styles, just like other types of screws. They are commonly made from materials such as steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are also available with different head styles, including pan, flat, and oval heads, to suit different applications.
Self-tapping screws are commonly used in sheet metal, plastic, and wood applications, where they provide a secure and tight hold. They are also used in automotive and electronics applications, among others, due to their ability to tap their own hole, which reduces the risk of damaging the material being fastened. Additionally, they are often used in DIY projects where a pre-drilled hole may not be possible or desired.
