Self-Tapping Screws are available at Swiftfix in a variety of heads, diameters and lengths to fit to your required needs. Tapping translates to when a screw creates threads in the material they are driving into. A self-tapping fixing makes its own threads as it enters. Comparatively, any regular screws are usually driven into specially prepared drill holes. However they do still require a pre-drilled pilot hole, especially with tough materials like hardwood or metal. Pilot holes are drilled for self-tapping screws to avoid any cracking and prevent damaging the material you are working with. They are compatible with softwood, hardwood, metal and plastic.
