Hardware Pro Tip: Variable Length/Break Off Screws

Drawer thickness varies, cabinet thickness varies, why not the screws!?

A lot of people will know what these are, but over time I've been surprised to run into some real furniture pros that didn't know they existed. Perfect for having around if you do a lot of different projects that always need a different length of screw.

We carry a couple different options on the break off screws.
We have this one that starts out as a 8-32 x 1 3/4" and then breaks off at three stage to also be 1 1/2", 1 1/4", and 1".

We have the two pack of variable length screws that gives you pretty much any size you need as one starts at 1 1/2" and breaks off down to 1 1/4" and 1".  While the second screw starts at 1 3/8" and breaks off down to 7/8" and 5/8".

Break-Off Screws (2 Pack) - 5/8, 7/8, 1-3/8 & 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2

The variable length screws are just a variation of the standard truss head screw used on a wide variety of furniture and cabinetry.
