These are the real thing! They are designed to attach sheet rock (drywall or gyp-board) to wood or metal studs, and come complete with a genuine Phillips recess and bugle head. After all these years extolling the virtues of Square Drive screws, why would McFeely’s begin offering Phillips recess screws? Simple. For installing sheet rock (without the use of an automatic screw gun) the Phillips recess just seems to work better - largely because it cams out so easily! Square Drive screws hold onto the driver bit so thoroughly that it is hard to set the screw at a depth that doesn’t tear the paper. So in this case, that which is normally a disadvantage becomes an advantage. Who said life isn’t fair? #2 Phillips. Like our Dry-Lube, the Black Phosphate coating offers little rust prevention, but does result in a black appearance to these screws. Made in Taiwan.
