Kung Fu Maintenance shows the advantage of nylon switch outlet wall plate screws vs metal.
OK, I’ve got a flashlight video for you here today.
What I wanted to show you, was when installing switch covers, or outlet covers, or replacing discolored switch plate screws. You see, this screw here is metal. And actually what it has is just paint on it. And unfortunately, it’s very easy for the paint to chip off. Yeah, not good.
What I have here for replacing it, this is a nylon screw. And it’s actually that same color all the way through. So even if you try to chip off the paint, the paint won’t chip off.
Anyways, so these are a lot less likely for the paint to chip off, because they’re the same material all the way through, as long as you’re getting the nylon screws.
And there we go. And it may be better to get the longer of these screws for these particular covers. But anyway, there’s the new screw. And again, these are a lot less likely to scratch, just because they’re the same material all the way through. And they show pretty much the same as the metal screws, but anyway. That’s the next flashlight video.
