Cam or locking screws are 2-part screws where the cam is inserted in one piece and the screw in a piece to be attached to this piece. By fitting the two parts together and tightening the screw you have a pretty secure connection. Cam screws are often sold as components for flat-pack furniture.
- Cam screws, also known as locking screws, are two-part screws in which the cam is installed in one section and the screw is installed in another portion that will be linked to the first piece.
- A sufficiently secure joint is achieved by securing the two pieces together with the screw and tightening it down.
- If any of these components are missing from the kit, they may be obtained from any building site nearby.
What happens if you put a cam out on a screwdriver?
It has the potential to allow the screwdriver to mistakenly slip out of the hole, causing damage (stripping) to the screw or potentially harm to the work-piece itself. Because a cam out poses a danger of hurting the person who is driving the screw, this procedure should be avoided if at all feasible.
