 Elco AllFlex Fasteners

High performance thread rolling screws specially designed to lower your in-place fastening costs.

Taptite 2000® screws form internal threads into plain holes in ductile materials upon initial installation, which:

  • Eliminates the need to pre-tap the nut member
  • Reduces problems associated with assembling screws and bolts into pre-tapped holes, such as cross-threading
