Thin head screw for keeping the depth of cross recess

   Disclosed is a shape of thin head screw for keeping depth of cross recess. At
present the Note PC of smaller size is required from the customer.

The typical Note PC size is decided by LCD panel size and it is necessary that
the gap between cover and panel is minimized.

The screw of this invention contribute to make narrow the width of Note PC.

Conventionally the screw of flat head is used to fix LCD panel in case the way
to fix by side mount.(Fig.1)

In the case challenging to realize small PC the screw is used the one as
Fig.2. It is thinner head but it cause bad manufacturing process due to
shallow recess.

This invention is improved with the merit of Fig.1 and Fig.2.
As the specific case it is indicated Fig.4 and Fig.5.

Each case can be used the same driver to fix panel and realized total width
minimized with thin head screw.
