screw thread types

Coarse Thread

Coarse Thread - Provides superior holding power when attaching to wood.

Fine Thread

Fine Thread - Provides superior holding power when attaching to light-gauge steel.

Hi-Lo Thread

Hi-Lo Thread - For attaching drywall to light-gauge steel studs or wood studs. Provide higher strip-out resistance.

Dual Thread

Dual Thread - Designed to pull fibers down, leaving smooth finish.

screw point types

Sharp Point

Sharp Point - Standard screw point for fastening into wood and other medium to soft materials.

Type 17

Type 17 - Long, sharp point with flute, which creates its own pilot point as well as displaces some of wood pitch.

XL Type 17

XL Type 17 - Extra Long, sharp point with flute, which creates its own pilot point as well as displaces some of wood pitch.

Self-Piercing Point

Self-Piercing Point - Needle point designed for use in relatively thin sections. The point literally stabs through the material, making a hole slightly smaller than the minor diameter of the threads. This allows the threads to extrude the metal for increased thread engagement and reduces the tendency to strip-out.

Self-Drilling Point

Self-Drilling Point - Point designed to drill through very thin sections too thick to be pierced. The number of the point determines the drilling capacity of the fastener. The higher the number, the thicker the material can be drilled.

Spade Point

Spade Point - Long, sharp point with flute, which creates its own pilot point as well as displaces some of wood pitch.

Finish Types
