Customer Questions & Answers

What is the rated strength of the screws if you use them on joist hangers?

Asked by: Jjflash
Hi Jjflast. These screws are not rated as structural screws for this application. Thanks for your question.

what is the pullout value in standard 2" nominal lumber (#2 hem fir or better)

if the deck is 2" thick (1.5" nominal) and its counter sunk about 1/4", that leaves about 1" to 1.25 inches imbedment in the deck joists, when it pulls the deck board down tight. . What is the value for the pull up on this screw for that ? If the deck boards are only 5/8" then this screw is embedded into the joist by about 1 7/8" and the pullout is what, for that? if using 2" nominal lumber for deck boards, should the user be using a 3-1/2" screw? the recommendations should be based on the screw strength in the wood substrate. thanks
Asked by: barry
Grip-Rite screws meet or exceed withdrawal strengths according to ASTM D1761 section 8.2. This test gives a single pullout value for each screw size, but no value is given for varying embedment depths. Pullout values will vary depending on substrates used, embedment depths, and many other live conditions. Thank you for using Grip-Rite. We would like to invite you to contact us using our toll free help line at 1-866-453-5815 if you need more specific information.

Customer Reviews

PrimeGuard Plus 2-1/2 in. Stainless Steel Square Exterior Screws (5 lb.-Pack) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for use where salt spray is an issue I have used about two thousand of these screws for PT fencing in a coastal area where we get some salt spray. Regular exterior screws rust out in two or three years, but so far I haven't seen any traces of rust or other corrosion on these screws after over a year of exposure. I don't know why reviewer "boston" had problems with his, but it sounds like something was wrong with the box he got. These screws are 1 5/8" long to within 1/32" and I have never had one torque off the head even without countersinking or predrilling and have never had the square drive round or strip out. I strongly recommend them for harsh exterior usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deck Screws The plastic case was a little beat up after shipping (fixed with tape). The screws are great; stainless steel, square drive. They work great for my application (replacing non-galvanized nails in deck boards from a failed contractor), with no drilling (the nail provides the hole). Note: do try to hand drive these; the push on the screw gun says this is true.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong description! This is a 2 1/2" screw, not a 1 5/8" screw. Home Depot's description fails to give any actual specifications for the screws, only for the box. (Nominal expected 410 count and the dimensions of the 5 pound plastic box. ) So, as you would expect from someone not talking about the product, this one is inferior. While the desired product is a #10 coarse thread wood screw with a self-drill point, standard chamfer head #2 sqqaure drive ... this is a #8 coarse thread wood screw with a bugle head. The problem with these screws is that without the self-drill tip it generates extra friction, but the #8 shafts are weak, and the shallow bugle head doesn't socket the square drive well. Result: screws that tend to strip their heads or snap their shafts just below the head. If you're stuck with them you can pre-drill the holes as if they were brass screws. If you value your time, avoid this product.
