I never thought I would be excited enough to do a review about screws, and yet here I am, extolling the virtues of the Befaco Knurlies. They've been indispensable when moving stuff around to rearrange my rig for reviews and product Instagram videos, and for that I am very thankful.
The Knurlies come in 2 different thread sizes and corresponding colors; the black M3’s, and the silver M2.5’s. They're 6.5mm in length from the bottom of the screwhead to the end of the screw, with 6mm of usable tread. Each screw comes with a 0.5mm soft plastic washer that is pre-attached, thereby minimizing rack rash-a nice plus!
You can tighten them many ways; with a small flathead screwdriver, a small Phillips head screwdriver, a hex key, or by hand, my preferred way. There's a diamond engraved tread throughout the screwhead giving you something to grip so there's no more slippage.
The Knurlies are well designed, attractive, and as far as I know, the only screws designed primarily for modular usage. They also come in a handy screw top lip balm sized tin to keep them all together. Is there anything that Befaco didn’t think of? I bought 100, but I’m going to need 100 more.
Price: from $12.50/25 - $40.00/100
