Southco’s New Captive Screw

Product Updates, Southco

Southco 47 Class captive screws (and the corresponding color-coded “Prism” 4C Class captive screws), offer hundreds of permutations of installation and tool-actuation styles for mounting doors, panels, and other hardware components in limited-space applications.

Features and Benefits

  • As one of the most popular Southco fastener styles, these versatile captive screws have evolved to provide numerous features to satisfy unique fastening hardware application needs:
  • Standard Phillips and Torx® recesses as well as combination recesses available
  • Screw head doubles as knob for hand actuation
  • Stylized knob for hand actuation, and ratchet-mechanism or smooth knobs for restricted access
  • Spring ejected design retracts threads when not engaged
  • Heat-treated steel screw provides superior torque strength
  • “Prism” colored fasteners enable you to coordinate hardware to your design scheme or to differentiate access points through color
