Log home builders first used this innovative timber screw to anchor one log to the next, but deck builders, landscapers, contractors, and others needing an easy driving, heavy duty fastener have quickly adopted it as their own. Extra deep threads maximize holding power in softwoods, while the diameter of the hex drive head is small enough to “bury” itself yet large enough to provide plenty of clamping force. Each timber screw has about 2" of thread. Select a screw that is approximately 2" longer than the thickness of the material you are fastening through for best results. A slippery black epoxy coating provides the corrosion resistance to pass a tough 25 cycle Kesternich corrosion test with less than 15% red rust. Use of these screws in Redwood or Western Red Cedar is likely to result in discoloration. 5/16 Hex Head. Made in the USA.

About Me Professional
I build handcrafted log furniture. These screws work excellent for joining logs together, and come apart when needed, just as well. Heads ar very durable, and do not "round"off". Just use a correct size driver bit and drill them in or out. I've used them for several years.
Best price around

We use thousands of these to secure rafters and joists to our heavy timber structures. McF has the best price on the net. The head is not quite as strong as a GRK, but in most cases, these are adequate. Sink 'em with an impact driver.
