Answer This Question

A:  The bit size is smaller than every other torx drive screw I have used. So yes, you will need to use the bit inside of the box.

A:  While a star bit screwdriver will work, they will not have the Plus that is built into SPAX screws. The included bit has a extended recess to accommodate the extrusion on the T-Star+ bit. This feature reduces wobble. Thank you for being a SPAX customer.

    A:  The size is specific but a generic T8 will work.

    by|Jul 3, 2020

    A:  Any Star drive will work. Just so it fits the head of the screw.

    Q:WILL THESE WORK FOR ATTACHING DRYWALL TO CONCRETE WALL

    Answer This Question

    A:  need to get concrete screws

    by|Jun 2, 2020

      A:  they will not work in concrete

      by|Mar 26, 2021

      A:  Yes, this screw would work well in this application. Keep in mind the depth of the hole in the masonry needs to be 1" minimum and the hole must be cleaned out well to remove the sheet rock dust and concrete dust.

        A:  Yes. Selecting the proper masonry bit will be a challenge since it will require a small diameter bit. Conveniently Tapcon sells the appropriate bit with their fasteners.

        Q:What benefits are there using yellow zinc?
        by|Jun 9, 2019
        4 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yellow zinc and our zinc coated fasteners have the same corrosion rating for the coating. The difference is a color preference. Thanks for being a SPAX customer.

        by|Dec 9, 2020
          1 found this answer helpful

          A:  Not sure I understand but if you were comparing them to lets say drywall screws (break/snap too easily). These spax screws are not as brittle and have more holding power for general construction. These are NOT stainless but they do come in that variant.

          by|Oct 11, 2019

            A:  so it won't rust

            by|Jun 2, 2020

              A:  No, just as long as it was zinc coated. Thant way you don't have streaks in time when it rains.

                Very good for the price. I liked the included bit better than the PowerPoint or GRK screws that cost almost twice as much. The screws seemed to perform well and I didn’t notice any defects in the box I’ve used so far.

                  Great quality screw, using high strength steel. Made in USA or Germany. Has a nice yellow zinc coating but is listed for indoor use. The Tstar plus drive is a standard t-20 torx bit with a circular relief for greater grip and positive bit engagement, the drive bit is encluded( a regular T-20 will work, but just not as good) and fits in standard 1/4 drive bit holders. I have never had one strip on me, and have used hand drivers, impact drivers and bits chucked in a regular drill. Definitely worth the extra cost, look for them in their own section in the fastener aisle.
