Anyone that has worked with melamine, particle board, or MDF knows how easy it is to overdrive a screw and sink it well below the surface. FastCap’s new PowerHead screws have big 9/16" diameter heads designed to prevent that very thing. The size increases the holding power by 4x that of a normal screw head, while the flat surface helps to hide the screw with a screw cap. Nibs beneath the head allow the screws to seat perfectly flush (use an impact driver drill for flush installation), or to be left proud of the surface. The self drilling Type 17 auger point allows them to drive easily in hardwoods and softwoods as well, without the need for a pilot hole. When used with FastCap’s FlushMount Drill Bit (part # FCS-6050), the screw head can be hidden perfectly behind a peel-and-stick FastCap. These screws have a #2 Square Drive (Robertson® recess). Made in China.

Attaching handmade wood shelves to wall.

Comments about 10 x 3-1/2 FastCap Cabinet Mounting Screws, Clear Zinc Plated, Flat Head, Square Drive:
These screws worked perfectly in attaching handmade wood shelves to studs in the walls. No caps needed. I used spray paint for the screw head before attaching shelves. Works much better than regular screws because of the larger head. Since I bought 100 now I have enough left over to replace all the other places where I used regular wood screws. Works like a built in washer. I used 3 1/2" screw which gave me a good 2 1/4" bite in the wall stud. This should hold anything I put on the shelf.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The perfect anchor
By George Yo
from Memphis, TN
See all my reviews
I used this product to install custom cabinets in a bedroom closet and my study. It gave me a durable anchor on the wall with only four, but two probably would have done the job. The slot in the head of the screw needs to be reinfoced as it would strip out when I ran into a tight insertion through the wall into the wood studs with out first drilling.
