Define: Shoulder Screws & Nuts

Description:

Shoulder Screws & Nuts are a piece of hardware that Dell typically uses to attach the slide rail kits to the chassis. The shoulder of the hardware drops into a notch on the inner tract of the slide rail assembly. This makes the installation of the rails very fast and easy.
