TAP/R® Thread-Rolling Screws for Refrigerator Hinge

Refrigerator Open

Problem:

The thread rolling screw that our customer was using to fasten the freezer hinge to a refrigerator would not consistently seat flat which gave a poor appearance to the end user.  As a result, the customer was going to begin tapping the assembly and using a machine screw.

Solution:

Customer switched to the Tap/R® instead of tapping the mating hole.

Impact:

The Tap/R® consistently seats flat due to the thread forming point and the customer was able to avoid additional cost of tapping the mating bracket and other problems such as cross threading.
