Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent heavy duty fastener The headlok fastener gimlet tip is easy to start, threading has excellent grip, is super tough, and the wafer head design is terrific. February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for sistering joists Product worked great, and becuase it has the sheer strength as framing nails, I used for attaching a sister joist for structural repair. The grab on these is great and really snugs up the two pieces - once engaged in the wood, my battery powered impact driver put them in like butter...even sunk the head belwo the surface. Much easier than even using a framing nailer - will never use anything else when doing joist repair as it pulls the wood together exceptionally...highly recommend. Also, I bought extra bits, but i put in >50 screws (including the 4.5 inch brother) without stripping. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A bit expensive but I love these screws Used for deck construction - smooth coating on screw - drives easily - star bit supplied in box - screws hold great. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great strong, no slip bit. great strong decorative screw. comes with star bit for non-slip install. April 4, 2012
