Southco has expanded its extensive line of captive screws with a new option covering the majority of panel fastening applications. Southco’s 4C Extended Length Captive Screw provides a standard solution for sheet metal and panel applications requiring different screw lengths.

Designed as a precise solution for panels, mounting doors and other hardware applications, Southco’s 4C Extended Length Captive Screw is available in a variety of tool actuation and installation styles, including press-in and flare-in.

The captive screws feature heat-treated steel for superior torque strength, while color-coded overmolded head options allow designers to differentiate access points or coordinate hardware with the overall design scheme.
