Tek Screw vs. Self Tapping Screw: What is the difference & what should I use?
One of the more frequently asked fastener questions is “What’s the difference between a tek screw and a self tapping screw?” Many people may think they are the same, and this leads to some confusion. There are actually some differences between these two types of screws commonly found in many mechanical insulation applications.
The advantages of using the tek screw is that they are excellent for combining two or more pieces of material (metal, wood, etc.). Drilling and fastening is done in one motion. The tip enables stress free drilling in the hardest metals and eliminates the need to pre-drill holes.
Some common uses for tek screws are in metal-to-metal, metal-to-wood and thin metal applications (such as working with steel studs).
This chart will help you solve any problem you may have:
Snap bushings insulate and mechanically protect electrical and telecommunications cables, tubing, hose, rope, and utility lines along with mobile equipment and industrial machinery that have many metal compartments where wire and cable can be exposed to sharp metal edges and friction. You can mitigate the associated risks with nylon snap bushings. Adding snap bushings to your metal compartments can help eliminate abrasion and protect wires and harnesses.
Snap bushings cover raw edges to smooth edges by adding a layer of insulation to every hole. They also have locking fingers that work with a variety of maximum panel thicknesses. No special tools are needed to insert these snap bushings.
Our snap bushings are made of durable, black 6/6 nylon which resists up to 35 pounds of pull.
Application is simple – once you have your hole cut, simply snap the bushing into place and you’re done.

This month, we are offering our Specialty Cable Tie Kit, which includes a variety of tie wraps to aid in securing hoses, cables, and harnesses to the frames of trucks and heavy equipment. The kit contains 55 total pieces and is made up of 6 different ties, described below.
Fir Tree Push Mount Tie
This tie is made of a 6.6 heat stabilized polyamide material with an operating temp of -40°F to 221°F. The fir tree grip is designed to grip the inside of a 1/4″ mounting hole. It is made for use on sheet metal, wood and cast iron.
Aerial Support Spacer Cable Tie
Aerial support spacer cable ties are a two-piece design that allows for standard spacing between wires and cables. This tie wrap is made of high impact polyamide 6.6 with an operating temperature of -40°F to 230°F. The support spacer is made of high density outdoor black polypropylene with an operating temperature of -40°F to 239°F and both materials offer a resistance to sunlight, saltwater, and harsh chemical environments.
Button Head Ties
This tie offers a one-piece solution for bundles, eliminating the need for additional mounts and fasteners. The strap has serrations on both sides and has two opposing pawls recessed within the domed head, enabled the strap to be directed either way through the button head. The button head is made of polyamide 6.6 which is heat stabilized and has a temperature rating of -40°F to 230°F.
NOTE: In order to insure the strap is fully locked in its secure position, you will need to make sure the wedge (located in the top of the strap) is fully seated in the button and is flush with the top of the button.
Dual Clamp Ties
The Dual Clamp Ties are designed to provide separation between hoses, wires, and cables protecting them from abrasions. The ties also have the optional mounting hole for securing bundles along the chassis of the trucks and heavy duty equipment. These ties are made of polyamide 6.6 – impact modified, heat stabilized, and UV resistant. The operating temperature is -40°F to 230°F.
Specialty Cable Tie Kit
- Black fir tree cable ties, aerial support spacer cable ties, dual clamp cable ties, and button head cable ties
- 55 total pieces in our 6-compartment large metal box (LMB-6)

This month, Terminal Supply is featuring our Grade 10.9 Metric Cap Screw Kit, which is stocked with some of our more popular sized screws, nuts, and washers.
With a total of 2,320 pieces, our 72 compartment bin keeps you organized and this kit ships with a set of printed labels so you can configure the bin to suit your needs.
To help save you time identifying parts, we are also including our metric bold sizing gauge absolutely FREE. This will help up you ID metric cap screws from 6mm to 16mm and also assist you in determining whether a fastener is coarse or fine pitch.
Metric Cap Screws
Metric cap screws have a raised marking of 10.9 on the head of the metric bolt indicates the hardness (or load, tensile strength, and hardness) of the bolt. This is almost as high as they get and is nearly equivalent to a grade 8 SAE or USS bolt. 8.8 is also a common metric hardness.
What is pitch?
Metric fasteners are described in terms of thread pitch, as opposed to standard fasteners which are described in terms of thread count. Pitch is the distance between threads using a millimeter measurement.
The “coarse” pitch is commonly recommended for industrial applications because of it’s durability and resistance to stripping. Smaller pitches are designed for use in applications where the height of the normal “coarse” pitch would be unsuitable. (e.g., threads in thin-walled pipes). The terms “coarse” and “fine” have (in this context) no relation to the manufacturing quality of the thread.
The markings you will see on the head of a metric fastener are shown below:

Terminal Supply is very pleased to introduce our June Kit of the month: our Stainless Steel Cotter Pin Kit
With this stainless steel cotter pin kit you can save valuable time usually wasted looking for just the right size cotter pin to suit your specific job or application.
Now, if you have ever experienced pitting or corrosion that has compromised the structural integrity of a machine or boat, the parts in this kit can help solve those issues, as well as a host of other common cotter pin issues.
The kit contains 950 cotter pins, all made of SAE 316 grade Stainless Steel, and is housed in our 24-compartment large metal box.
We’ve been supplying our customers in industrial, marine and other “severe environment” industries for almost 50 years and have included all of the most commonly used sizes.
We chose SAE 316 Grade Stainless Steel for 2 main reasons:
1) Its ability to withstand constant attacks by powerful, corrosive chemicals such as chlorides and acids.
2) Its resistance to oxidation in high temperature environments is superior to other types of steel.
Additional benefits of Stainless Steel:
Lower alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric and pure water environments, while high-alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions, and chlorine bearing environments, properties which are utilized in process plants.
Fire and heat resistance
Special high chromium and nickel-alloyed grades resist scaling and retain strength at high temperatures.
The easy cleaning ability of stainless makes it the first choice for strict hygiene conditions, such as hospitals, kitchens, abattoirs and other food processing plants.
The bright, easily maintained surface of stainless steel provides a modern and attractive appearance.
The 300 series provides high toughness, from temperatures to far below freezing, making the series particularly suited to cryogenic applications.
Long term value
When the total life cycle costs are considered, stainless is often the least expensive material option.
