The 3/8" Posts hole goes all the way through so the screw can be threaded.

3/8" Aluminum screw posts have many uses. Originally used for binding documents, they are also commonly used for connecting leather parts in cases, straps, holsters, tack, and more. Our 3/8 inch aluminum screw posts will securely fasten 3 or 4 thicknesses of 8-10 ounce leather. For maximum strength, the post should be long enough to go all the way through all of the pieces when they are assembled.

Aluminum screw posts have a multitude of other uses as well. They can be used to assemble just about any material that you can drill or punch a 1/4 inch diameter hole through, including plastics, cardboard or card stock, metal, wood, foamcore, and much more. Just push the post through the hole, thread the screw into the post and finger tighten. Your materials are now securely fastened!These Chicago Screws are threaded all the way through the post for greater strength. The screws are the standard length used by all of our longer posts, so they are completely interchangeable. We sell screws and posts together so that you you don't have to worry about matching lengths.

If necessary, aluminum screw post extensions can be added to the standard aluminum screw posts to achieve a better fit.
