Star Drive Flat Head Machine Screws
6 Lobe Stainless Steel Machine Screws
Star Drive Flat Head Machine Screws feature a countersunk flat head and a Star Drive drive, also referred to as 6 Lobe drive. Star Drive head machine screws are often used with nuts or driven into tapped holes. They tend to be mostly available in smaller sizes.
Star Drive Drive Screws are designed so the driver will not slip out of the fastener as a Phillips drive might, since the driver is not inherently centered on the fastener. A benefit/disadvantage of non-typical drive style is that it can be more difficult for users of a device to disassemble it than if more-common head types were used. The Star Drive drive reduces the chance of fastener stripping, allowing for a higher torque installation.
Stainless Steel Star Drive Flat Head Machine Screws feature a flat head with an 82 degree undercut for a smooth and flush installation. Star Drive 6 Lobe Flat Head Machine Screws in 18-8 Stainless Steel are corrosion and rust resistant in applications exposed to fresh water or moisture, ensuring a durable fastener assembly.
