Double threaded plates accept either Hex (HLH ST) or Star (SLH ST) Locking Head Self-Tapping screws and cortical screws. Double Threaded plates feature our multipurpose hole which allows either compression or locking in either side of the multipurpose hole. These multipurpose holes are placed in the most ideal locations to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient.
- The inside thread of a single threaded plate has one thread and the inside thread of a double threaded plate has twice as many threads.
- The benefit of having twice as many threads leaves less chance of stripping compared to single threaded and engages faster with your initial turn than single threaded.
- The double threaded stardrive recess provides automatic screw retention without the need for an additional screw holding mechanism.
- The double threaded stardrive recess allows a smaller screw head and allows the screw head to sit flush with the plate.
