This is a very high quality screw with several innovative features. The threads and point make the screw easy to install, but the best feature by far is the Star Drive (Torx) head.
Unlike slotted or Philips head screws, this screw has a broad six-point head. More points means more holding power against torque, which means that you *really* have to work to strip this screw. I've driven GRK screws through hardwood, using the supplied Torx bit and a portable drill. Trying to do the same with a Philips head, I destroyed the head!
As noted, the 70 count pack comes with the necessary Torx bit, but you can also buy the bit separately, and it's a standard T25 bit.
The screws are also brass-tinted rather than shiny, which makes them less conspicuous in wood.

Concerning any type of furniture construction from scratch, I'm a first time DYI. I stumbled upon this product on youtube of course, I was amazed at how the demonstration showed just how easy this product works. At first I tried other screws only to have to make frequent trips back to the home improvement places because they just wasn't up the task. After so many disappointments, I had started to lose hope that I was going to complete my project of constructing my platform bed. I thought you could only purchase this item on line. My was I happy to see that Home Depot carried this brand of fasteners. It certainly lives up to what was proclaimed . Initially , The plan for constructing this bed called for predrilling and to use a countersink drill bit, but these screws did both of these jobs in one step. I'm sold that this product is DEFINITELY the one to have on hand . Thanx to the makers of such an awesome product. I have the confidence that I can do this again.
