About This Product

The GRK Fasteners RSS screw is made from Climatek coated and hardened steel. Its sharp threads and point bite instantly into material (including hardwood), reducing the splitting effect caused by smaller shanks. Its washer type head has no sharp edges like conventional lag screws and the added shoulder underneath the washer has the ability to center the RSS screw in predrilled hardware.

Highlights

  • Ideal for ledger boards and more
  • Made of extremely high quality carbon steel that provides high tensile torque and shear strength
  • Self-tapping - no pre-drilling required
  • Installs with a standard drill
  • W-cut thread design
  • Climate corrosion resistant coating
  • Built-in washer
  • Sharp zip-tip point bites instantly into material for ease of starting with minimal force and reduce splitting
  • CEE thread design reduces friction and makes driving easier
  • Short rounded head provides low profile finish with no sharp edges
  • Excellent lag screw alternative

Q:Would these screws hold up to a saltwater environment? I would use them to attach the back to a bench on a dock in Florida.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, for an application near salt water you will need to use a stainless-steel fastener and the RSS does not come in that variety. If you have any questions, feel free to reach us on our hotline. The number is 800-222-6990. Have a great day!

      Q:Can you *really* drive this 3/8-wide lag screw through ten inches of wood without pre-drilling? Specifically, railroad ties.

      A:  Realistically it needs pilot hole. None of my battery drills or impact drivers could drive these through that much wood - the motors were burning hot and giving up.

      by|Mar 16, 2024

        A:  Hi, I'm Andrew from GRK. The 3/8" x 10" RSS fastener is capable of performing this task. If there are structural considerations in your particular application, we recommend contacting a local, licensed engineer to evaluate the appropriate fasteners.

          Used to use to anchor a floating ceiling medallion to the ceiling. They are “self tapping” so no pilot hole is needed once you mark your studs. Quality fastener for heavy duty needs.

          Holy cow these babies know how to screw into the 4x4‘s we used to build the hen house base. Self tapping and snugged it together perfectly. The t30 bit didn’t slip at all. Superior product to keep it together.

          I used two to mount a BMW wheel on the wall of my garage. I pobably only needed one as i coud do chin ups on it! I tried to remove the coating with a wire wheel to get it silver but had to use a sanding wheel. Looks like it would hold up to the elements outside.

            So much better then a lag bolt. With the torx head this goes in very easy with a cordless screw driver. We use this in place of the old style bolt head lag bolt. You can't go wrong with this screw and brand.

            Fastener was easy to use, predrill not necessary. Use GRK products whenever possible.
