1/2" Aluminum screw posts have many uses. Designed for binding documents, they are also commonly used for connecting leather parts in cases, straps, holsters, tack, and more. Our 1/2" screw posts will securely fasten 4 or 5 thicknesses of 8-10 ounce leather. For maximum strength, the post should be long enough to go all the way through all of the pieces when they are assembled. Making the hole a snug fit for the parts will also increase the strength of the connection.
Aluminum screw posts can be used for other projects. They can assemble just about any material that you can drill or punch a 1/4" diameter hole through, including plastics, cardboard or card stock, metal, wood, foamcore, and much more. Just push the post through the hole, thread the screw into the post and finger tighten. Your materials are now securely fastened!
If necessary, aluminum screw post extensions can be added to the standard aluminum screw posts to achieve a better fit.
We sell screws and posts together so that you you don't have to worry about matching the correct parts.
If you would like to have a different appearance, try our plastic screw posts. If you need greater strength to hold large or heavy materials, please consider our steel screw posts.
