A screw is fully threaded, a bolt is partially threaded. Hence, the different name in the title, ‘Socket Screw/ Allen Bolt’. So, generally speaking the fastener is a screw in lengths around 1-2inches/ 25-50mm (depending on diameter: they can vary up to ½ Inch/ 12mm with different diameters). The fastener becomes a bolt when there is space of unthreaded area on the shank, under the head. ‘Socket,’ refers to the hexagon shaped indentation found on the top of the fasteners’ head. Here, you can use a hexagon key (Allen Key) to tighten and loosen the fastener. The length of a fastener is measured from the point at which it fully touches the material to be fastened.
