The specs show this product is not self drilling or self tapping. Do you have to drill a hole prior to screwing in or can you just take the bit and drill and install without predrilling? Thanks
Asked by: George
With the built-in cut tip, you don't need to predrill the hole, but is couldn't hurt

Is this a T20 or a T25 star drive?

I can see what I am buying in the store but on-line this needs to be a part of the spec as it is on the box. In the past I have seen mostly T20 on these 2-in screws but recently more of the much preferred T25. ( The T25s don't strip and wear the bit as much as they handle more torque and I don't need to swap out bits as often so also fewer mistakes with using T20 in a T25 screw, ouch) Thanks
Asked by: StanB
A T-25 bit is included.

#8 x 2 in. Star Flat-Head Wood Deck Screws (5 lb.-Pack) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from too much dip in the head The only complaint that I have about this screw is that there is too much dip in the head of the screw making it where the bit will not sink all the way into the screw on a lot of them making it real hard to put in. No problems breaking or anything. I bought 3 of the 5 pound boxes for a 130ft long privacy fence.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken in half after 1 year Last year I bought three 5 lb boxes of these screws to build my deck. After only 1 year, so far I've found over 80+ have broken clean in half (see picture) and that doesn't include the ones I haven't found yet. Home Depot has since refunded me for 2 boxes no questions asked for which I am thankful (lost the receipt for the third box), but that doesn't pay me back for the hours I now have to spend taking out broken screws and replacing them with better ones... not to mention the fact that half of the screw is still in the hole when it breaks so I have to either dig it out or do a toenail with a new screw in the same hole so my deck doesn't look like swiss cheese. What a mess. Do yourself a favor and find a better screw.
