I've used these fasteners for years with great success. They fit together properly and will screw tight so you can't open them again without a screwdriver. I hold the female side with pliers while screwing the male portion of the screw in tight. You can't get it off again and they don't loosen up ever. I've never had a Tandy brand Chicago screw come undone when it wasn't supposed to. These are great for holsters, knife sheathes and any other leather project. I like them very much or I would not continue to buy them.
Cons: needs pliers to hold base on attachment
The assembly speed of these Chicago Screws beat rivets hands down. However, it takes a pair of pliers to hold the base in addition to a flat head screwdriver to attach quickly, otherwise it will spin. I attached a few of these to holes I punched in a few leather cuffs to attach other things to. It took a minute to assemble using these vs. 5 to 10 minutes per rivet — sometime more if the rivet doesn't set right and has to be reattached.
These one were a bit too thick for the project. So, I also bought the 1/8" long Chicago Screws which work better for single layers of leather. These work well for 2 layers of standard depth leather.
Bottom Line: I would buy these again if needed.
The Tandy Leather Screw Post is not just for leather products but can be used with any paper product that needs to be held together. It's so easy to use and not too small either. You can purchase these screw post in various sizes and different types and styles. Depending on what you need to bind will determine the size of the screw post you will need. The types vary from metal to aluminum. The style of the post can be a round head, a round embossed style, or simply flat.
What I like most about using this product is that it's very economical and no special equipment is required. All I had to do was punch holes in my paper, grab the top post with the threading inside and then grab the bottom post, insert them through the paper and screw. Another great benefit was that the screws were magnetized so that made it easier to line the screws up without even looking. I would recommend this product to any office or student needing to bind papers together. There are many similar products on the market but right now I will stick with this one until it no longer accomplishes what I need it for.
What I was disappointed about though was that they don't have the little "teeth" on the inside of the female ends flanges. Being a flat face on the underside of the female end, you have nothing to grip to your material to keep it from rotating as you screw in the male end, which means you can't really get it snug. I bought the 1/8" version of these with an open back from the same company and they have the teeth on them which is really useful.
This is all my fault though, as the pictures clearly don't show teeth, I just assumed they did since the others from Tandy Leather had them. My bad. If these had those teeth then these would be awesome for kydex holsters, I'll have to look around for other chicago screws in 1/4" that have them.
these are fine if you're looking for gunmetal or don't mind a dark silvery color, but not if you're looking for a very flat or dark finish. i'll probably give these a little coat of paint so they match the other holster harware.
