Steel Button Head Cap Screw Kit for Sliding Dropouts|
Item #PG-MS2006: Our complete steel button head cap screw kit for sliding dropouts is meant as an upgrade for older dropouts or as a replacement for hardware that has become bent or worn. The kit consists of four each M8 x 1.25 x 18 button head cap screws, two each M5 x 0.8 x 35 socket head cap screws, two each 2 mm thick double washers, two each M5 thumb nuts and two each M5 hexagon lock nuts. Both the hex nuts and the thumb nuts are meant to be used as lock nuts for the adjuster screw. Typically one or the other is used, not both. Some riders use the adjusting screw bottomed out in the thumb nut, making a larger head for the adjusting screw. If you choose to do this, use the hex nut as a lock nut. The washers spread the load from the bolts over a larger area, hold the parts together better and keep your frame from getting damaged from repeated tightening and loosening of the bolts.
The screws and hex nuts are zinc plated steel, the washers are 304 stainless steel, and the thumb nuts are brass.
