We've tooled up our own custom M5 screws specifically made for mounting ski bindings to swap plates or inserts. The head is flat underneath and fits like a button head screw. The underside of the head has locking serrations to help ensure that the screw doesn't back out over time. High quality stainless steel. For use with a Pozi #3 phillips head screwdriver. Low head screw lengths are measured thread length only (the length of thread to the bottom of the head).
It is very important to maximize the number of threads engaged in an insert or a swap plate, so be sure to measure carefully. Inserts can accommodate from 3mm min to 6mm max of thread engagement. We like to target 4mm of thread engagement. Do not exceed the min/max numbers for any reason - you will not get a secure mount. These screws fit exactly like Allen button heads in terms of length.
If screw head diameters need to be ground down please specify by choosing "Heads ground to 8mm" in the drop down when adding the item to your cart.
8mm screw length head diameter CANNOT be reduced.

I have purchased many items over the years and everything has been outstanding. These screws are no different. Exactly as advertised, great quality and awesome customer service.

These mounting screws fit the bill. There are visual indications of voids in the material and imperfections in the threads, so they're not of the highest quality like aerospace grade or anything. They assemble fine and I haven't experienced any failures, so the fasteners meet the needs of ski touring.
