Understanding Screw Dimensions
If the instruction manual doesn't help, or you are trying to do a custom build of some kind, here's a quick tip on measuring screws. By the way, all Rampages use metric hardware
How to Measure Length
When measuring the length of screws, measure from the surface of the material where the fastener will be to the end of the fastener.
Flat Head Screw Length: For example, if you are measuring a screw that is on the bottom of the chassis, it is likely a flat head / counter sunk screw. In this case, you would measure from the surface of the chassis, to the tip of the screw. Or, just remember to measure the entire length of flat head screws like the image above.
Button Head Screw Length: Some of the screws on your Rampage may be button head or cap head screws like the image on the upper right. In this case, you would measure from the under side of the head (this is where the surface of the material will contact the screw) to the tip of the fastener.
How to Measure Diameter
Screw Diameter: The diameter of a screw or bolt is determined by measuring across the threaded portion of the screw. It is NOT determined by the size of wrench required to turn the screw or bolt.
Hex Nut Diameter: A hex nut is measured by the size of the hole in the center of the nut, NOT by the size of the wrench used to turn the nut.
Washers: Washers have an inner and an outer measurement. For example, part number 07177 m6 x 16 flat washers have a 6mm inner hole and a 16mm outer diameter
Understanding Product Descriptions
Understanding how to read the product description is the next step in ensuring you order the correct screws for your Rampage. Here are a few examples of Rampage hardware along with some additional tips on understanding the part descriptions
I hope this article helps you find the correct part for your Rampage.
