Want to build a good rack for your home studio? Then you'll need quality rack screws! We carry an array of rack screws that will help you keep your rack sturdy and secure.
Rack screws are a minor, but very important piece of equipment when building a rack. A differentiating factor when it comes to screws is the head type. Sweetwater carries screws with three various head types — Phillips, Torx and square, and there are benefits and drawbacks to all of these types.
Do you want stability and ease of installation? Phillips screws are the most common, and you probably already have a Phillips screwdriver at home. These screws can easily be tightened and are great for keeping your rack gear firmly in place. They also have a clean and modern appearance, and many of our Phillips head screws come finished in black oxide for an even better look.
Are you looking to secure your rack gear? Want to prevent someone from removing a screw? Then a more uncommon type of head like the Torx or square will do the trick. Both Torx and square types offer a degree of security because not many people own the tools required to take these screws off. Sweetwater also carries special security rack screws which are designed to prevent loosening and tampering. When buying these special screws, you can also find their respective drill bits in our store, so you can make sure no one but you can access your screws.
If you're worried about damaging your equipment and racks, don't be. Many of the screws we carry also come with quality nylon washers so you can rest assured they won't scratch your equipment. We also carry non-conductive washers which will isolate your equipment from the rails. And if you're looking for that something extra, check out our rack isolation tabs which are easy to install and will prevent any scratches, while also isolating your gear and eliminating hums.
Rack screws themselves are extremely durable. Most of them are heat-treated to make them stronger and resistant to head stripping. Many of them also have a self-guiding pilot point, which is perfect for easy alignment into rack rails. Sweetwater also carries mounting kits which are usually comprised of screws, washers and clips, so if you want an all-in-one package, you’re covered.
