What Is This For


Recommended Posts

This appears to be an adjustment screw for something. It sticks up about an 1” above the floor and has machine threads. As you can see in the attached picture it’s right in front of the passenger captain chair. What is its purpose?

Ive had same issue in several places under rug areas. Just screws backing out.

Some drywall screws have ridges under the head for a short distance.

Might  be a self tapping screw fastening flooring to steel tube or angle. Looks like it was never fully sunk and the carpet layers did what carpet layers do best. Lucky it wasn't a brick.

It has me stunned. The opposite side of the steps had the same screw. It is about a 3/16” diameter x4” with machine threads. Cannot find it exiting underneath any where. I ran both of them down tight and they are covered up now.
