Wow! These super-long timber screws will make you put your hammer away forever! No more drilling 1/2" holes for rusty rebar, then slugging away with a sledge hammer for hours. With a self-drilling point, these screws go into pressure-treated lumber like a hot knife through butter, they won’t back out like nails, and they offer substantially greater holding power. The new “Spider™” Drive (like an 8-point star) works great (you get a free bit with each pack of 25, or 3 bits per carton). The 3/16" shank has approximately 2" of 1/4" diameter threads and an oversize 5/8" diameter by 1/16" thick head (dimensions are nominal). A special black epoxy corrosion-resistant coating is extra slippery. Use of these screws in Redwood or Western Red Cedar is likely to result in discoloration. Mix or match for pricing discount. Made in the USA.

Comments about 1/4 x 5 Headlok Timber Screws, Black Epoxy Coated, Wafer Head, Spider Drive:
These are simple to use but they need more or bigger threads. I understand the purpose of having threads only at the end to pull the boards together, but for typical dimensional lumber here in CT (Doug fir) they strip too easily. If you try to countersink the heads they strip, or if you over torque with the drill. Will keep using them for random yard projects, but would not recommend any structural building. The fact that the strip so easily makes me question their holding power.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We used these to tie 6x6 timbers together. They worked great!
