Use these on your next project and you’ll wonder why screws haven’t been designed like this all along. McFeely’s ProMax® screws are designed with a thread length for the common usage of the screw. For example: A 2-3/8” screw used to install 5/4” decking needs slightly more than 1” of smooth shank, while a 2-7/8” screw used to install 1-1/2” thick 2x stock needs more. These ProMax® screws have self-drilling auger points, self -countersinking nibs, and our special NoCoRode “Plus”corrosion-resistant finish. Use NoCoRode Undersized driver bits for best results. Made in Taiwan or China. Unthreaded Length 1-9/16"
ProMax™ Optimized Thread Length™: What It Means and Why You’ll Like It!Deck screws are a good example of Optimized Thread Length. The screws normally used to install 2 x 4’s or 2 x 6’s for decking are 3 inches long and have 1 inch of unthreaded shank. Since 2 x 4 and 2 x 6 deck material is 1-1/2 inches thick, the threads bridge the joint, as shown, resulting in an uneven and unsightly surface, or screws that are over-driven trying to “pull the board down.”
ProMax™ screws are different: Thread length is optimized to eliminate crossthreading, and the 1/8” length system allows use of the longest possible screw. In most cases, the smooth shank and self-drilling point allow installation without predrilling! Just select a screw that provides an unthreaded shank length equal to or slightly greater than the material thickness being fastened.

works as advertised
from Orinda, Ca
Just built a deck, screws worked great, they were a big help drawing the wood together. I built it by myself so I needed the screws to do their job.
