Pro-Dec is the oldest and largest manufacturer & supplier of fastener cover-caps in the world.


Pro-Dec began in Australia in 1973 when Pro-Dec was granted world-wide patents for the revolutionary Snap-Caps after deciding that the then-popular 'cup washers' were both visually unattractive and potentially dangerous if the screw was damaged.

During the mid-1970's, Pro-Dec developed a strong presence in the US and Asian markets, but it took until 2008 before Pro-Dec was able to enter the UK market with a full Pro-Dec presence.


Pro-Dec has a number of different types of cover caps that are designed for specific uses

  • Snap-Caps: Comprise a plastic washer and cap which lock together, forming an airtight seal around the fastener head. Suitable for interior and exterior applications.
  • Electroplated Snap-Caps: Like our plastic Snap-Caps, however the cap are finished in a high-quality, hard-wearing genuine electroplated finish that is suitable for exterior applications and lasts for years and years.
  • Bifix Caps: (aka ‘Pozi’ or ‘Star’ caps) Low-profile caps that push directly into the cross-head drive recess on Phillips-head and Pozidriv screws.
  • Stemfix Caps: A low-profile cap with a long-stem that inserts into a head-hole screw (such as Confirmat or SupaChip screws).
  • Cladding Caps: A cap and washer (like Snap-Caps – only bigger) which are designed to work with Tek & Type 17 roofing and cladding screws
  • Number-Plate Caps: Snap-Cap packs in Yellow, Black & White to match UK vehicle number plates

Pro-Dec also distributes specialty screws, such as SupaChip screws, Self-tappers for vehicle Number-plates & Security screws for use with vehicle number plates and other uses.

Pro-Dec also stocks high-quality storage bins which are an affordable but convenient way of storing small parts such as screws or cover caps in your workshop or van

Quality Control

Unlike other suppliers who simply source the cheapest product they can from China or other far-east regions, Pro-Dec manufactures all its own products – the tooling, machinery, staff and factory are all Pro-Dec’s.

Pro-Dec operates its own QA program, developed over more than 30 years, which covers all aspects of the manufacturing and distribution process, and which in many aspects is far more rigorous than the conventional ISO standards.

Today, the Pro-Dec group of companies is now the largest manufacturer of fixing and fastener covers in the world. With the aims of Quality and Service, Pro-Dec has a record of not just meeting customer expectations, but surpassing them.
