Customer Questions & Answers

Are these domestic steel?

Asked by: Marvin

what is the correct driver size ?

Asked by: Ulysses
This particular size will use a T-25 bit, which should be included in the box of screws. If you use the smaller or shorter sizes, they usually take a T-20, but should also include a new bit in each box. Just a quick side note. Stainless is a very soft material. While it is great for wet locations, it is best to drill the right size pilot hole (3/32" or 1/8") in the wood prior to attempting to drive this length of screw. Otherwise you risk, bending or snapping the head off. I use these for marine applications and so long as you take some extra precautions, they are great. Just need to understand the material characteristics of stainless material.

3 in. x #10 Stainless Steel Deck Screw (1 lb.-Pack) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.

I had intended to buy the old style galvanized deck screws, but the store didn't have any. I saw these, and while I was taken aback by the price, I figured they were worth a try. Being stainless, they were less prone to rust, and I liked the idea of a Torx head on them. I drove a bunch of them into new pressure treated wood with a screw gun, and never had one single screw slip, strip or break. They drove into the wood very easily, and next time I need deck screws, this is what I will buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SS Deck Screws I used the screws for a renovation of an old deck mainly because they can be removed more easily than nails when you have to replace any part of the deck that gets to old or damaged. The screws used were 3" x 10 stainless steel and were easily used without pre-drilling holes for them. The screws were in a plastic box with a easy open lid and they included a T-25 Star installation bit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shouldn't rust, but requires pilot holes I just screwed in 27 of these, and I did not have a drill bit long enough to make a pilot hole the entire length of the screw. While screwing in 3 of these, the heads broke off. I recommend using stainless 305, 304, or 316 screws instead of e.g. another popular coated deck screw, but be sure you drill pilot holes first because these aren't the toughest screws around. It would be great if Home Depot sold these in decking colors, but alas just regular stainless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality screws These are very poor quality screws at a premium price. I ran out of Spax screws and needed more right away, these are unfortunately the only stainless ones HD carries in stock. I went through A 5 pound box of Spax screws, didn't snap a single one. I snapped 2 of the first 3 of these GripRite brand ones. Pre-drilling is a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from standard stainless durability I haven't used any yet but I am familiar with Grip Rite from Lowes so I know they are standard solid stainless steel as advertised. I was looking for another brand, Swan Secure, aka Swaneeze, that are the same size, square headed, and 3", the stainless ones I've used before from Lowes, which no longer carries them, but HD didn't have them. I found a substitute in Grip Rite. Pilot holes, no problem, I already know to drill pilot holes, I've been maintaining my deck since about 2000. It's best to screw manually for the final halfway and not use power tools all the way b/c the squares will get stripped maybe, then you have to toss them and start over with a manual screwdriver. Everybody wants to use only modern power drivers, but sometimes the old way is best and the only way that will work. These are the best, they are superior to spiral shank nails b/c they can be unscrewed, spiral nails would make your lumber a bear to pry out with a pry bar or crow bar. Stainless does not rust and is like the old surfboard fin screws made of stainless steel designed for water contact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER SCREWS Love these screws. They are stainless and do not rust. Very nice for outdoor use or wet areas.
Date published: 2016-06-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Resists rusting I'd say out of a 5lb box I had to throw out maybe 20-25. The heads either stripped or the screw bent. If these were regular steel screws I wouldn't complain but all ss screws are expensive. My deck is frequently wet so no other screw will work, as they ALL rust but these.Well I did notice a bit of rust on the heads of some of these but I imagine the screw portion in the wood is fine.
