Socket set screws, also known simply as set screws, are threaded fasteners designed with no external head and are often used to secure an object within or against another object. These screws feature an internal hexagonal (hex) socket drive at one end, allowing for torque application using an Allen wrench or hex key.

Set screws are commonly used in industries like machinery, electronics, automotive, construction and more. It's important to note that when using set screws, care should be taken not to overtighten them, as this can damage the threads, or the parts being fastened. Additionally, using a proper torque wrench or tool is recommended to avoid damaging the screw or the components.
