Introduction

In case you ever mix up or lose the fasteners in your Framework Laptop, this guide goes over the different sizes and types used. All of the fasteners we use have either a T5 or PH0 head, making the Framework Screwdriver the only tool you need for them.

There are also five spare fasteners screwed into the inside of the bottom cover of the Framework Laptop for some of the more common ones.

  1. In the first image, marked with pink markers, we have the gold colored fastener that is used for WiFi, Storage, and the Audio Board.  This is an M2 3.0mm fastener with a 4.5mm diameter T5 head and 0.7mm thread pitch.  The right-most fastener in the top three spares above the Mainboard is an extra of these. In the second image, marked with yellow markers, we have the gray colored fastener that is used for the Mainboard.  This is an M1.6 1.5mm fastener with a 5.5mm diameter T5 head and 0.6mm thread pitch.  The left-most fastener in the top three spares above the Mainboard is an extra of these.  These are also used for the Webcam. In the third image, marked with blue markers, we have the silver colored fastener that is used for the Hinges where they attach to the Bottom Cover.  This is an M2 4.0mm fastener with a 4.6mm diameter T5 head and 0.6mm thread pitch.  The middle fastener in the top three spares above the Mainboard is an extra of these.
