Notes:

  • The basic thread lengths (LT) listed directly below the nominal sizes in the table above represents the nominal length up to which all screws of that diameter shall be fully threaded.
  • To determine the threaded portion of the screws with a nominal length greater than LT, subtract the minimum design grip length (LG) from the nominal length (L).

Flat Socket Cap Screw Profile 

Descriptions An externally threaded fastener with unified threads, a cylindrical head (with a flat, chamfered top surface), knurled cylindrical sides and hexagonal recess. An externally threaded fastener with unified threads, a cylindrical head (with a flat, chamfered top surface), knurled cylindrical sides and hexagonal recess. Head height is 50% of a standard socket head and the socket size is smaller. Similar thread design as a socket cap screw, but the dome-shaped head is wider and has a lower profile. Similar to a button head socket screw, but with an 82-degree countersunk flat head.
Applications/Advantages Precision assembly work and applications requiring a well-tooled appearance. Greater tensile strength than same size Grade 5 or 8 hex head cap screws while requiring less surface area due to the internal wrenching. Stainless socket screws have less tensile and yield strength than alloy sockets, but superior corrosion resistance. They also retain mechanical and performance capabilities at higher than ambient temperatures. Useful in situations where clearance is limited. *Due to design constraints, low head cap screws cannot withstand same preloads as standard socket cap screws.  Used when a wider bearing surface or smoother, finished appearance is desired. Designed for light fastening applications. Not recommended for critical, high-strength applications. Used when a flush mount, high-strengh screw is required. Often used for tools and dies where moving parts pass over an area.

* Note: For screws of nominal lengths longer than those for which LGH and LBH values tabulated in this table and for screws over 1 inch in diameter, the maximum grip gaging length LGH and the minimum body length LBH of the screws shall be determined as follows: LGH = L - LT and LGH = L - LTT where L = nominal length, LT = minimum thread length, and LTT = maximum total thread length.
