Q:Would these work to attach metal to a Trex composite deck board (for a planter)
by|Dec 7, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Yes, it'll go through thin metal and hold into the decking if it's holding a hanger. Not likely to hold the planter to the decking directly.

      Q:These are zinc plated, can they be used exterior?
      by|Sep 7, 2020
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi JJN, the zinc plating provides minimal protection against corrosion for exterior applications. Pending on the expsoure of the fastner to the elements, we recommend using a fastener with a corrosion resistant coating for your application.

        These screws seem well made, and suited my purposes well. I used them to secure drawer slides to my drawers. The head is a bit larger than others I’ve used, so where there is limited space, the head will be too large. I also used them to secure drawer bottoms to the drawer at the rear.

        I purchased these to install fence rails to metal posts for a new fence. The rail company recommends a #10 but these seem to be working well. They work into wood easily The heads are made of hard enough steel to be driven with a cordless drill without stripping out. I made sure to use the proper sized bit. Overall, I’m happy with how well these worked.

        crap screws
        The heads keep popping off the screws after a week of being installed there are still heads popping off upon further inspection I find that the slot for the philips head goes all the way into the shank of the screw making the shank at the head very thin I don't know if this is bad batch or of this is the way they make them now I will have to think hard before I use these again

          These screws work well in wood with no predrilling. Excellent for mounting hardware cloth.
