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 5-1/2'' Extra-Long Wafer Head Timber Screws - Spider Drive:
Drive in quickly and hold well.Would benefit from an auger-tip design to help drill its own hole and decrease splitting when installed near the end of a board.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great screws to hold landscaping timbers or any diminsion lumber together. It helps to have an impact driver but the screw slot is a big help.

Very effective for timber construction of above ground planters. After drilling the correct sized pilot hole the screws went in easily and the wide head provided excellent surface for holding.
My 4x4 footbridge is solid built.

The spider drive and sharp points make for fast work and holds solid.
