Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Great Screw! I love these screws with the star-drive. They are so easy to drive in versus Phillips head screws. The screw bit stays in touch with the screw head without bouncing out. I almost only buy these now. December 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is well mfg. especially for exterior use I have used these screws to build Adirondack chairs for a number of years and find they hold up very well when left in the elements. They grab and hold the materials and the star head doesn't strip like philips head do. January 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great Great product. I am using to build a chicken coop. November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great screws These screws are not cheap, but they work great. I try to avoid Phillips head screws because they strip so easily. No stripping of the heads with these guys. Drive in cleanly. I have not used them for extended outdoor use, but the coating looks durable. January 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by prices are too expensive prices went up through the roof recently. definitly not justified. March 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Go back to the phillips head. Star heads keep stripping.......With the phillips head I can install and remove and reinstall many times w/o stripping. June 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great screw, but inventory limited We are in the midst of replacing the boards on a 1900 sq' deck. My son & I love the product, great grip, seats well in the board, head doesn't strip etc. But we started putting in Phillips Head and Home Depot has moved all of this type of inventory over to Star or other related versions. I would suggest buying all that you need so you don't get caught changing screw types midstream.....was surprised they would phase out Phillips Head. While the project has gone well, pulling out the old screws to attach new boards has been an education. The old cheap screws made the boards break down faster. Life of the decking you use may only be as good as the type of fastener you use. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work Great! These screws worked great for the dock I built. I especially like the head configuration due to being a dual bit head. No slippage at all when inserting into treated lumber. April 28, 2015
