Captive Panel Screws

Captive fasteners are an engineered class of fastener designed for a permanent hold (captivation) within a target assembly or housing. They provide a secure joining and avoid fastener loss or damage that might be caused by a loose part.

A captive fastener is often made with thread locking, press-fitting or broaching to accomplish an anchor hold within a larger assembly housing. However, a captive fastener may also be melded with the material into which it is joined, either through cold forming or welding. They are sold in different styles with knurled or smooth heads and come in Steel, Stainless, Brass and Aluminum. They are sold in metric as well as standard threads.
