Screw posts, also known as Chicago screws or book binding posts, are extremely versatile binders that allow loose documents of practically any shape or size to be securely bound together. These low-cost, reusable Chicago screws enable you to easily change out bound documents, making them a great choice for price books, menus, swatch books, architectural and engineering drawings, and much more. Our high quality, antique brass-colored aluminum screw posts provide an easy-to-use alternative to other binding methods at an exceptionally low price point. Their two-piece construction allows for no-fuss updates, which is why they're an ideal choice for applications that require frequent updates.

If a Product Does Not Work, What Can One Say?

by -

I tried fitting one screw and one post together. I managed to get the screw to go into the post about 3/4, so a few threads were still exposed. It would go no further. I tried unscrewing and it would not. I tried a second set with the same result. Even though I put them together only finger tight, I could not get them undone. When I used a wrench on those first two, they just sheared off instead of unscrewing. I tried two other sets, and each screw went in only about four or five turns before getting stuck. I even started them by turning the screws counterclockwise, first, to make sure the threads would line up. When I couldn't undo them with my fingers, even while struggling and hurting my fingers from the force I applied, they still did not budge. I did not try to undo those with the wrenches. I left them. I tried a fifth set and got about three or four turns before it started to stick. I decided to give up and ask for a refund. I have used Chicago screws for nearly 60 years since I was a child helping my mother with her bookkeeping for work and several times for other reasons over the years. I have not otherwise had any of these issues with other screw posts.
