Sturdy and solid, will stay with you forever
The neighbor kids learned new vocabulary from me & my frustration with trying to back these screws out. They're meant to drive in & hold, not be taken out. Try it - 95% of them will strip. Put them in for the long haul & don't ever think of removing them.

    FastenMaster screws
    On the surface, this system looks and installs great. The problem will surface 6 years later, when the screws literally disintegrate. I put down an entire back deck with these fasteners, and now they are literally rotting away. And the ones that rusted to a pulp didn’t even get wet. They need to be made from stainless steel, or something along those lines.

    Thank you for your review and we are sorry if you experienced an issue with the Cortex screws. Fiberon did not offer these screws for our decking 6 years ago, but we appreciate the feedback provided and ask that you contact FastenMaster at 800-518-3569 so they may investigate your concerns with the performance of the screws.
