Screw for contaminated pre-tapped holes

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4973209.

A locking screw having a head at one end, a special entry portion at the other end, and a trilobular shank portion extending from the entry portion toward the head. The screw is further characterized in that the thread profile is of a double angle configuration symmetrical about an axis perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the screw. The entry section is tapered and is formed with a series of truncations which serve to clear progressively a contaminating coating in an internally threaded workpiece, such as a nut, when the screw is threaded therein.
