  • Knurled tops

    I came across these little things. Plastic tops that press on to an appropiate socket cap screw. This one is M8. A nice time saver and surprisingly well made too.

    I wonder what they are called so I can find some of my own.

    McMaster Carr calls them Plastic Press-Fit Thumb Screw Heads. They are available in both inch and metric sizes.

      McMaster-Carr has various styles under "Socket Head Cap Screw Knobs."

      I like the "rosette" style for good grip:

          Where in the UK? I was thinking about them the other day last used them about 25 years ago.

              SPI shear-loc knobs is what they were called last time I bought them.
