The present disclosure relates to a screw-retaining device (1) comprising a connecting element (2) which in turn comprises a first end part (3), a second end part (4) and an intermediate part (5) that connects the end parts (3, 4). The first end part (3) comprises an at least mainly circumferentially running part (6) that at least partly encompasses a retaining aperture (7) that is arranged to engage the threads (9) of a screw (100), and the second end part (4) is attached to an object (8). The screw- retaining device (1) further comprises a washer part (20) with a first and second washer portion (21, 22), having a corresponding first and second washer aperture (23, 24). The washer portions (20, 22) are connected and spaced apart by a gap (26), and the washer apertures (23, 24) admit passage of a screw stem (19). The first end part (3) is arranged to be positioned in the gap (26) before a screw (100) that is intended to be retained is mounted to the screw-retaining device (1) via the retaining aperture (7) and the washer apertures (23, 24). The present disclosure also relates to a screw-retaining kit.
