<R20>

R20 says certain commertial screw can be used which doesn't prohibit nylon screw. So my question is whether the nylon screw from robosource can be legal or not? Thanks. Ref: https://www.robosource.net/robot-parts/screws-hardware/nylon-screws-nuts/139-nylon-screw-0500

Rule <R20> permits the use of specific sizes of commercially-available hardware, but does not specify or restrict their material beyond the statement in the rule's red box regarding additional functionality. There is no rule that prohibits nylon screws that fall within the other constraints of rule <R20>, therefore they are legal.
