<!381>3.5mm Locking Self-Tapping Cortical Screws


 
Description
The 3.5 mm Universal Locking, Self Tapping Cortex Screw is designed to fit the VID Universal Locking Plates. Pre-drill with a 2.5 mm drill bit. No tapping necessary. The screw can be inserted into any 2.7 mm or 3.5-4.0mm VID Universal Locking plates equipped with a 4 notch locking hole. The VID 3.5 mm drill guide must be used for proper hole positioning. The screw can be inserted perpendicularly to the plate with the straight drill guide or can be inserted with a 15 degree variation in 360 degree direction to a total of 30 degree angle using the funnel end of the drill guide. The screw can be inserted and removed several times in the straight in configuration and can be inserted or removed a few times in the polyaxial configuration before it would fail to lock in.

This screw is equipped with a standard AO/ASIF hex head accepting the same standard 2.5 mm AO/ASIF hex screw driver used for 3.5 mm AO/ASIF screws. The screwdriver fits into the head deeper than with an AO/ASIF screw for additional torque power. There is no need for torx screw driver. The design is sufficient to lock in with applying regular force.


Additional Notes & Tips
The 3.5mm VID Universal Locking Screw was designed to be pre-drilled with a 2.5 mm or a 2.7 mm drill bit. When you are using 3.5 mm AO/ASIF cortex screws and 3.5 mm VID Universal Locking Screws in the same plate - there is no need to change drill bits or screwdrivers between placing AO/ASIF or VID Locking screws.

When a 305 mm VID Universal Locking Screw or a 3.5 mm cortical AO/ASIF screw was attempted to be placed and the bone tunnel thread stripped a 4.0 mm VID Universal Locking Screw can be placed where bone stock allows and still get the locking power. The 2.7mm and 3.5-4-0mm VID Locking System Plates are interchangeable to accept all 3 locking screw sizes.
