These screws work great was really impressed by not having to pre drill the boards on the end so they would not split also the star drive is awesome plus they are less expensive than the Deckmate brand

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PapaL Excellent!
I built a 500sq foot deck and chose to use the TRIO screws. I recently used deckmate exterior screws at my dads house and every screw split the wood. I went with the TRIO screws in hopes that the would wouldn't split and for a clean look. The screws worked great, 2000 screws and only 10 or so splits. They drove in fast and held down tight. I am very happy and think it was worth paying a few more bucks for the TRIO screws. I also used Timberlok screws for the support beams, posts, and ledger. They also worked fantastic. They screwed right in with my 18v Ryobi with no trouble. They held tight and firm. I was extremely impressed and I won't use anything else but Fastenmaster products, they make really good and easy to use hardware.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirefighterGeek Used 500 - NO strips, NO splits. Best. Deck Screw. Ever.
I am REALLY impressed with this product.
Not a single stripped head.
Not a single broken screw.
Not a single split board end (even close to the edge).
I'm not a professional contractor, just a guy fixing a deck. I used about 500 of these over the course of a few days and I had not a single problem.
I had 4 of their special drill bits between the three boxes, but the first one I used lasted just fine all the way through.
I never had the bit slip out of the screw head once. Not once. This is with my 18v impact driver, driving through fairly wet 5/4 pressure treated into very old pressure treated 4x4 timbers.
I used some of them at 45 degree angle to "toe in" when I need a little more distance. No problem, no pre-drilling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dickie Just the screw I was looking for.
It's funny that I couldn't get these screws here in the pacific Northwest. They came from MA and did they come quick.
I love them. Thanks very much
