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.

I was struggling finding the screws at another vendors website, and thought I would take a change with DIY since they looked like what I needed, and they are perfect
my clients love them on their holsters, and the are easy to tighten and locktite as well

They work and look great but I should have ordered the 3/8" long version. With the plastic belt loop, rivet, and two layers of 0.06 kydex the 1/4" screws, combined with the 1/4" 8-32 Slotted Head Posts, work but the extra 1/8" of the 3/8" screw would give more thread interaction and not protrude. My next order will be for the same just in 3/8"

As their product description suggests, the finish on this hardware is fantastic. It is smooth, even, and does not scratch easily. Plus the price is unbeatable compared to the competition and shipping was super fast. I will not order hardware from anyone else after used this hardware myself!
