The newest member of the TAPTITE 2000® family of fastener address an old problem – screw stripping when being tightened into sheet metal.  These thin nut members create some of most difficult fastening problems for end users.  While almost everyone is quick to realize that low strip-out resistance is the number one problem when assembling sheet metal components, fastener alignment and statistically consistent performance also add to the assemblies' difficulties experienced.

FASTITE® 2000™ screws incorporate several
features to solve assembly problems.

CA Point:
Allows entry into small holes to create self-extrusion of the sheet metal and increase resistance to stripping.

Undercut Head:
Absorbs material extruded by the screw and increases the underhead contact area to increase resistance to stripping.

Twin-Lead Thread:
Results in opposing threads in the thin material in increase thread contact.
Aligns fastener so it starts straight.

Radius Profile™ Thread:
As used on TAPTITE 2000® fasteners, provides low thread forming torque with high resistance to failure.

TRILOBULAR™ Body:
Provides resistance to vibrational loosening.

Optional Underhead Serrations:
Further increases resistance to stripping and loosening

NOTE:  EXTRUDE-TITE 2000® fasteners are single-lead versions of FASTITE® 2000™ fasteners for

             situations where the customer will not accept a double-lead design.
