Screws that are used in the digital sender
This table describes the screws used in the digital sender and provides guidelines to help determine
where each type of screw is used. The screws can vary in length depending on the thickness of the
material that is being fastened. Always note where each type of screw is located and replace each

This screw is used to fasten metal to metal when good electrical contact is
needed. This screw also provides high resistance to loosening.
This screw is used to fasten sheet metal or plastic to plastic frames (the deep,
coarsely spaced threads provide an increased holding capability while
decreasing the possibility of stripping the target hole).
This screw is used to fasten sheet metal parts to the sheet metal chassis. It
spans large clearance holes and distributes the load by increasing the bearing
To install a self-tapping screw, first turn it counterclockwise to
align it with the existing thread pattern, and then carefully turn it
clockwise to tighten it. You will feel resistance and hear the screw click
when it engages the existing threads in the hole. Do not overtighten the
screw. If a self-tapping screw-hole becomes stripped, repair the screw-
hole or replace the affected assembly.
