What are Slotted Head Screws and Phillips Head Screws?

Slotted head screws drives have a single horizontal indentation (the slot) in the fastener head and are driven by a “common blade” or flat-bladed screwdriver. This form was the first type of screw drive to be developed, and for centuries, it was the simplest and cheapest to make. The slotted screw drive works best when hand-driven; it is normally not used with power tools because of the danger of the screwdriver slipping out of the slot and damaging the surrounding material. It is most suitable for simple carpentry, where the torque applied is less

The head of the Phillips screws is designed to permit the driver’s head to cam out whenever excessive force is applied, which is why most factories and handymen use them. The screws tend to be lightweight and relatively small. The trick is to match your screwdriver to the type and size of screws you’re using.

Slotted Vs Phillips: What are their advantage and disadvantage

Screws exist in every corner of our lives, don’t look at it as just an inconspicuous small part, but thinking of a small mobile phone chip, the connection of large devices requires screws. And for many people who are engaged in engineering, screws are a familiar thing, and there are many types of screws. If you are a layman, it is really difficult to distinguish.

But I don’t know if you have carefully observed the screws. Why are the screws divided into slotted and Phillips screws? If you want to know, then you must not miss today’s articles. Let the Heatfastener as a custom screws manufacturer and supplier explain the difference between slotted head screws and a Phillips screw, you may not believe it when you say it. In fact, the invention of the slotted screw and the Phillips screw is sequential. Of course, the slotted screw must be invented first, because its structure is relatively simple and it is very convenient to use.

However, slotted head screws are very easy to be screwed, so when making some equipment that often needs to be disassembled, most of them will use Phillips screws, because the durability of Phillips screws is better. Moreover, the Phillips screw is more sturdy, and even if it is damaged, it is not easy to cause an irreversible situation. Instead, it is a slotted head screw. If it is broken, it is difficult to repair, so some fine electronic components will choose Phillips screws.

But in fact, these two screws have disadvantages, because the groove between them will cause damage if they are too hard, so later smart people also invented other types of screws to suit various needs. For example, the hexagon socket screw is a very practical invention. The hexagon socket screw has better stability, higher practicability, and is not easy to be damaged. Hexagon socket screws are used in many large instruments, and the use of hexagon screws is also very extensive, but the most common ones in our daily life are actually flat-head screws and Phillips screws.
