Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GvlRemodeler Effective solution for squeaking floors under carpet
I've now installed over 750 of these screws in clients homes to resolve squeaking floors under carpeting without removing the carpet. It takes some patience and knowledge of floor structures to determine the layout and location of the floor joists beneath the subfloor. The smooth shanked screw included with the kit helps although I've broken 6-8 of them over the years. Once the layout is complete, installing and snapping off the screws is a breeze.
They don't always eliminate all the squeaks, but all my clients have been pleased with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris Works well for price
I originally bought the contractor pack with 500 screws. That pack was around $60 and came with 6 joist finding screws, 2 screw driving bits, and a metal tool for breaking the screws. I've seen the normal 50 screw pack, with its plastic breaking for $20.
This replacement pack is well worth the price. You get 250 more screws for close to the price of buying the original 50 pack.

The system works perfectly for the price. I bought the contractor pack of 500 screws and all the tools for 50 or 60 dollars. This pack is cost effective if you have a large area to do.
This pack of additional screws is really good so you don't have to get another starter set of only 50 screws, especially when this set is only 5 dollars more for 5 times the screws.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nitin Very poor quality ... NEVER BUY
These screws break at different lengths.
Really surprised that Home Depot carries such products.
Extremely dissatisfied with the purchase

I had squeaky floors (original pine tongue in groove floor boards) in my 120+ year old home. One floor was already refinished and another not yet done. The holes left in the floor already refinished had to be carefully filled with polyurethane. The unfinished floor was a breeze. This is a great solution!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Great for reducing squeaks in hardwood floor
In our 50-year-old home, the hardwood floors in the second floor had become very squeaky. In one room I used about 120 screws which greatly reduced the flooring noise. I'm very pleased with the results and will continue using these screws in the other rooms on the second floor.

Our squeek-no-more starter kit contained 50 screws, and they were great! The screws left a small hole in our hardwood floors no bigger than the pilot holes I drilled. Removing the head of the screws was easy.
So we bought this 250 screw package to finish off the house. That's when the problems began. The screw heads would break off, but I couldn't pull them out of the floor by hand. I had to use a hammer to pry them out of the floor, and when they came out they ripped up the surface of the floor, leaving a rough hole at the surface two or three times as big as the pilot hole I drilled.
I ended up returning 150 of the screws rather than tear up my floor even more.

Screws work well when used in conjunction with screwing from below floor. I've found that it's necessary to do both in order to truly stop floor squeeky.
