Industrial fasteners comprise a broad category of devices and tools to connect parts together, usually in a permanent or semi-permanent way. Many of these are mechanical in nature and familiar to anyone who’s a homeowner — nuts, bolts, hinges, studs, handles, knobs flanges, rivets, and screws. Some items such as screws can be further subcategorized — as thumb screws, self-drilling, shoulder, captive, jackscrews, and security screws.
