Hand screws and nuts are threaded fasteners that are designed to be tightened by hand. They are produced with a head that is securely fastened onto a threaded body to allow for easy tightening and removal without the aid of tools. The molded head provides added resistance to thermal and electrical forces. Hand screws and nuts are recommended for projects that require repeated assembly and disassembly without the use of tools.
