Socket Set Screws

Also referred to as grub screws, socket set screws feature an internal hex drive and are one of the leading high-strength tension fasteners in the industry. Set screws are designed to fasten one object inside another, passing through a threaded hole in the outer object and tightening against the inner object. Durable, reliable, and available in a variety of materials, socket set screws provide an ideal solution for a wide range of standard and custom applications.

Available in numerous grades, sizes, and materials, Fastener Solutions is your premier destination for high-quality standard and blind set screws.

Socket Set Screw Fastener Options

Grub screws are specifically designed and manufactured for use in industrial and mechanical devices that feature rotating wheels or pulleys. The set screw works by exerting compressional force through the tip to prevent the relative movement between the two objects so each part can function as intended. Fastener Solutions provides the following socket set screw options:

Set Screw Type


Cup Point

Slightly cupped to meet the surface of the inner object. Most common style. Provides a high level of security and control.

Knurl Cup

Similar to the cup point, but with knurls for a stronger grip.

Cone Point

Extremely high holding power. Utilizes sharp point wedges for a permanent hold.


Cost-effective and easy to install, they are designed for increased flexibility. Flat point screws can be moved without damaging the inner object.

Oval Point

Extremely practical, used in applications where the inner and outer objects require regular adjustments. Inverse of the cup point set screw.

Dog Set Screws

Often used instead of a dowel pin, dog point set screws the protruding tip locks within a hole.

Nylon Tip

Similar to dog point, the nylon tip is used to grip curved or textured surfaces.

Brass Tipped

Brass Tipped set screws lock tight and won't mar the mating surface or the mating part.

Patch Lock Set Screws

Used when vibration is a problem, patch-lock set screws provide prevailing torque on the screw to prevent back-off.
