A: Hi Tinjtn, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. Thank you for your question. The key features of this screw are a black double-barrier finish and its compatibility with our Outdoor Accents connectors. To fasten a wood beam, the 3-1/2" screws may not be an ideal length. Additional information on code-compliant fasteners in residential deck construction can be found in our letter for "Alternate Fasteners for Connection Details in AWC DCA6" (L-F-DCA6SCREW) that can be found by searching for "DCA6" on strongtie.com. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.
A: Yes, if using with connectors with holes that line up, we would recommend a VERY SLIGHT angling of the screws away from each other. Some holes in our Outdoor Accents products have a slight offset to the hole locations (i.e. The holes on the horizontal flange of the APVT4 is 1 1/2" in from the edge on one side and 1 3/4" in from the edge on the other). Please note, in our many installations for testing and such, we did not see problems with the screws hitting each other. Thank you!
A: The SDWS22312 is also available in single count (SWS22312DBB-RN1) and 12 count (SDWS22312DBBRC12) packages, but they are not available on the Home Depot website. Please visit your local Home Deport store to order/purchase. Thank you!
A: These screws are also available in packs of 12. Ask for part number SDWS22312DBBRC12. Your Home Depot associate may need to contact our customer service if they do not carry this item at the store. Regards.
A: Yes, they typically carry vacuum sealed packs with smaller quantities.
A: This is a wood screw - it has not been tested/rated for attachment to mortar. Thank you!
A: These are designed for wood. A better choice would be TapCon fasteners however those require a hammer drill and a special drill bit.
