## What is a 10 24 screw?

Screw size The first definition is about the size of the screw. For a 10-24 screw this is 0.19 of an inch as the major diameter and 0.1379 as the minor diameter.

## What length of screw do I need?

The most important factor in screw selection is length. The general rule of thumb is that the screw should enter at least half the thickness of the bottom material, e.g. 3/4″ into a 2 x 4. The other factor is the screw’s diameter, or gauge. Screws come in gauges 2 through 16.

## What is the standard size of a screw?

These screws must have a threaded length of at least one and a half times the diameter of the screw — the threaded length excludes the length of the screw head and any anchor the screw may have. VESA recommends a standard screw length of 12 millimeters (1/2-inch) for this category.

## What are the dimensions of a screw?

Screws have three basic measurements: gauge, threads per inch, and shaft length in inches. So, you may also see a measurement like 6-32 x 1 1/2″. This means it’s a #6 diameter, with 32 threads per inch (almost double the normal thread count as a standard wood screw) and an inch and a half long.
