#5's a greenfield connector. The setscrew's angled to keep the greenfield from pulling out.

The set screw flex connector in #5 is the most common one I see. The inner ring suburbs here that were built under the local "all metal" code have this connector on 99% of the flex run.

The screw tightens down into a valley between the corrugations of the flex, forming a burr that prevents the flex from sliding out.

I would think that you don't need a redhead on #7 because there is no sharp edge, the connector threads inside the greenfield.

I use a lot of #3 for 1/2" greenfield. I have #3, 5 and 7 on my truck in both 1/2" and 3/4" now. It just depends on which supply house I got greenfield connectors from. You do not need a red hat with any of 3,5,7.
