4C Wing Knob Captive Screw

 

Southco has recently expanded its captive hardware line with the addition of a captive screw that offers tool-free access. The new 4C Wing Knob Captive Screw enables quick-access fastening by hand or tool, and features an over-molded, wing-style head that can be used to designate access through an array of standard and custom color options.

The 4C Wing Knob offers simplified positioning of sliding components, simple installation and quick-release for easy removal. Press-in, flare-in and Surface Mount Technology (SMT) options provide versatility for fastening and unfastening by hand or tool when mounting doors, panels and other hardware components in applications where space is limited.
