Socket Head Cap (Allen) Screw UNF 1/4 x 1/2 inch in Zinc Plated Steel - ASME B18.8
Also known as an Allen screw or Allen bolt, or simply a cap screw, socket head cap screws are a more modern alternative standard machine fastener to the standard hexagon headed bolt or setscrew, as found on much modern machinery. A hex key (otherwise known as an Allen key) is required to fit these fasteners. Conforming to ASME/ANSI B18.3, the contact surfaces of this screw or bolt are protected from external damage. Generally manufactured with a partial thread beyond a certain length and nominal diameter combination, but occasionally some stock may include a fully threaded shank at the same combination.
