Do these fit in Kreg Jigs?

Asked by Joe December 13, 2020
1
Answer

Only in a pinch and if you don't care about appearance. The heads are just a tiny bit larger in diameter than the counterbore made by the Kreg step drill bit. You can force them to work but you may split out the counterbore and you won't get a very "precision" filt. As Maxwell Smart would say, "Missed it by that much."

Can these be used with a Kreg jig system?

Asked by dk July 30, 2020

Answers

I don't know which Kreg jig you are using so I will tell you that the pan head on this fastener is almost 1/2" in diameter. If you have a 1/2" hole in the jig, they should work.

Would these be good for outdoor use?

My container says that these screws have the Climatek coating. The container also says that the screws are approved for use with pressure treated lumber, suggested uses include exterior siding and cabinets. Hope this answers your question.

Answers

HI Brody, these screws are designed to mount cabinets and should withstand the weight required. These do not have weight ratings listed because they are not typically used for structural applications. If you have any further questions, please contact customer service at 877-489-2726. Thanks!

These fasteners work as designed. I had never hung a cabinet in my life but after some explanation from a pro and using a couple I felt very confident with them. I used them to connect several cabinets together and also mount them to the wall.

These are really good mounting screws.. Self drilling point (also quite sharp.. careful where you place your fingers). Bought these to build a frame to clear pluming drops in a drop ceiling. A bit too long (my choice) because I was NOT sure just what lumber I was going to use. 1X2s turned out to be the right stuff so the 2 1/2" length was good for the job. (could have gone with 2" or even 1 3/4") I did not want counter sunk screws (tend to split wood when driven "too far") and these do well pulling below the surface of this softer wood with NO splitting. (All the screw holes were pre-drilled as well) I like the GRK fasteners and the spare bit included is a nice touch.

I had an old set of redwood furniture that been left in the elements for some time. So I cleaned the chairs and table, but the joints on these pieces were weak and not very stable. With these self tapping fasteners, they quickly and effectively secured the joints so now the pieces of furniture can be used.
