Nylon tipped set screws have a flat half dog point that protrudes from the end of the thread. Also referred to as blind or headless screws, nylon tipped screws help absorb vibration and are most commonly used to joining a pulley, collar, coupling or gear to a shaft. The nylon half dog point is rigid yet soft, which allows the nylon tipped screw to be easily removed without causing surface damage.
