Captive screws are screws specially designed to lock into place on a mother board,
enabling the easy installation and removal of attached pieces without release of the screw.
Captive screws are commonly used in the manufacture of computer parts, furniture and other
goods that need to be made on high volume assembly lines, because captive screws are quicker
and safer to use than more conventional types, as they don't fall and clog or damage machinery.
Many military contractors prefer to use captive screws to meet military standardization
requirements and provide easy, safe access to objects needing repair. Captive screws also
allow for rapid assembly line manufacture, because they can be installed at different points along the line.
