A robust design that is the only solution whose performance has been proven to eliminate strip-out problems caused from thin sheet metal and misaligned holes.


    • Material thickness 50% less than needed for standard “AB”.
    • Eliminates stripping problems in materials as thin as .025”.
    • Solve Misalignment issues that cause stripping.
    • Part number consolidation of “AB, “B”, sharp points and blunt points.
    • Due to radius point, it is safe for use around wires
    • Ergonomically safe for workers, no scratched skin from sharp points.
    • Hole size standardization across various tapping thicknesses.
    • Eliminate rework cost due to stripped screws or work piece scarring.
    • Superior locking action of the Hurricane ribs allow you to reduce screw size and maintain high performance.
