  • Our hardware is sold by weight not by actual piece count. Actual quantity may vary slightly.

Hardware is hardware, right?  You be the judge.  Our hardware is similar to everything else out there.  While we’d love to say it is all U.S. made, that is sadly not the case as common hardware is just not made domestically except for very special applications.  So, our oval head 8-32 screws are probably made on the same equipment in the same overseas factory as the next guy’s.  But we do take one extra step with our hardware that sets it apart from the competition.  Unlike most hardware distributors, we do not sell black oxide coated hardware.  While black oxide is a decent finish, there is a better option.  We have all of our hardware Melonited by a U.S. metal treatment company.  MELONITE is a thermochemical treatment for improving surface properties of metal parts.  In addition to generating a deep black color that is a part of the surface of the metal, it also hardens the surface of the part to approximately 70 on the Rockwell scale.  This process offers unparalleled abrasion and rust resistance.

We take this step not just to be different, but to offer you the finest hardware available for your project or product.  And we keep our prices at or below what you can buy black oxide hardware for.  So, is all hardware created equal?  Try DIY hardware and see the difference for yourself.

    The Best

    Posted by Jerry Thompson on 21st Sep 2017

    These are the very best slotted threaded posts. As compared to others that we've tried there are far fewer defects in thread pitch (maybe one in one thousand, sometimes zero in one thousand).
    The slot on the post is actually usable as compared to other brands which have too shallow of a slot.
    Bottom line, these are the only posts that we want to use and buy in bulk so we don't run out.

    Awesome product guys. Added value and "curb appeal" to my gear.

    As expected. Screws are well made, finished well. Gives your holster a nice appearance.

    poor thread clean out

    Posted by Travis Owenby on 14th Feb 2016

    This last order has a very high number of post that have poor threading. All of them need to be pre threaded before installing and some are just getting thrown away.
    A little unusual as this hasn't been a problem in the past.

    I just saw your less than stellar review of our slotted posts. Can you send me some photos of those? I'm not seeing that problem on our end. In the meantime I've put in a replacement order for you. I'm guessing these were from the latest batch you ordered (100 pack)?

    Excellent product

    I have purchased other products from other vendors, and they do not match the fit and finish of these. Would recommend these to anyone needing this type of product.
