Southco has recently expanded its offering of color-coded Captive Screws with an over-molded line well-suited to limited space applications. The new Miniature Over-Molded Captive Screw features a low-profile design with an over-molded head which acts as a visual indicator for access points, while at the same time enabling the designer to designate access through an array of standard and custom color options. The over-molded head also eliminates the possibility of scratches on painted and powder-coated hardware without significantly expanding the profile of the fastener.
Similar to Southco’s Standard Low Profile Captive Screw line, the Miniature Over-Molded Captive Screw enables fastening in tight spaces and extends the industrial design of the end product to the fasteners used for assembly and access applications. Combination tool-operated recesses and hand-tightened knurled head options provide versatility for fastening/unfastening by hand or with tools when mounting doors, panels and other hardware components in applications where space is limited.
Product Manager Jim Grady adds, “The newest addition to Southco’s Captive Screw line brings color versatility to limited-space applications, allowing engineers to easily designate access points or color code access as part of the overall product design scheme.”
