Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mildcat Won't Cam Out and Drive Smoothly
Several years ago I replaced several boards on my cedar deck and had to remove and replace lots of stainless steel screws that had square drive heads. I had to use a drill and screw extractor to remove about half of them because the square drive heads kept stripping out. Several even stripped out when installing the new screws.
I'm now replacing about a hundred boards using these star drive screws and they just don't strip out and they drive through the boards like butter. I heartily recommend them.

I purchased two 5lb boxes for a deck. It was 16x20. Almost had enough to complete the job but not quite. Needed a few more, for convenience I went to a store close by and purchased another brand (1lb box, they did not carry this brand.) I had 5 screws either break or strip out of this box. Of The grip-rite PrimeGuard, I installed 10lbs and did not have any issues with any of the screws. That says something about the quality of this product. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Torx drive is far superior to the previous square drive.

So far, so good. I bought 1400 of these for my deck project. Paid a little more for the stainless steel, as recommended by the experts, to use with the western red cedar I'm using for this deck. Even though they are self starting I pre-drilled the holes to keep the boards from splitting. Time will tell about the no rust but these do come with a life-time guarantee. I've only found about 1% of these to be unusable (i.e. star on screw heads messed up) so that's not too bad.

screws are great the 4.5 that is in the specs is the box size lol I guess that could confuse someone but I can't seem to find the big buckets anymore but I'm still happy

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OzDG specification sizes are nonsense
These are 2 3/8 inch screws. The specification is full of "4.5 inch".
The screws are fine, the spec is very wrong.
