How many screws in a 5 lb. pack?

Asked by Tj September 20, 2018
6
Answers

Like Dale said, the box indicates approx. 309 screws in a 5lb box of the #9 x 3in screws. The description on the Home Depot site is incorrect. 309 is less than 85% of the 365 that they indicate. Adjust your order accordingly.

Quantity per pound (even approximate)?

They should work fine. I would suggest a shorter screw though. They have shorter ones and unless your going into a double 2x4 or a 4x4 you wont need that long of a screw They make a 1 5/8 that would probably be more for you situation.

Every other screw head is stripping when I try to remove them? How do I prevent that?

Bad batch??
Just as Jeromie stated, screws are breaking. 35'x25' ft deck built in Feb 2020, it's now September. 1/2 the deck boards are popping up. After inspection it turns out the screws had snapped and are no longer holding the boards down. I did not count all the screws but at least 50 of them are broken. Also the starhead strips out very fast. These screws are great screws and not sure if I got a bad batch. Using these screws in the past on other decks I've built I've never had these problems.

They break after 1 year
Built 3 level 1800 sqft deck in Oct of last year. Was going to clean and stain this week but instead im dealing with broken screws. Up to 50+ replaced so far and still have largest deck to go. These screws are junk. I just finished chemo in August and now i have to deal with this. Decimate is manufactured by homedepot if you guys didn't know.

Screws are breaking after less than two months
Over the course of the two months, I've purchased four separate boxes of Deckmate star drive coated screws to use in securing deckboards while remodeling my back deck: (2) 1 lb boxes of 2 1/2" (item #: 1003 274 848) (1) 5 lb box of 2 1/2" (1003 274 835) (1) 1 lb box of 3 1/2" (1003 274 833) I've since stained my deck and thought I was finished with the project when I began to notice some of the screws slightly "popping" loose. While attempting to re-secure them with a drill, I determined that several of the screws had essentially begun to break. So far I've discovered at least ten of them (photo of several below, along with an "unbroken" one for reference) that have broken, all in a similar spot on the screw. I really liked these screws when installing and their promise of "lifetime warranty" but am now greatly concerned over what the future holds regarding their durability.

These decimate screws are my favorite. Reasonable price, the star drive bit never slips or strips out and they hold tight. Great for exterior applications but work well for all kinds of applications.

The "improve thread" design just tears up the wood resulting in anchor failure. HD's picture does not make it clear what these are. See MY picture before deciding to buy. I suppose there is SOME application where you want to drill out the anchor hole but in the pine lumber (treated and regular SPF) I am using they have no holding power with these screws which act more like drill bits than screws.
