Don't get excited, that's just what's on the little sticker, along with a logo,
in every box of GRK plastic decking screws. They're really nice trimhead
screws with a torx-type drive. I've used about 400 of them and have yet
to have to replace a bit. Anyone who has ever used #1 Phillips type
trimhead screws knows that it can take several bits to get one screw home.
I've been using them to install T-111 siding. The only problem is that when
the top material is thicker than 1/2" or very hard, like oak, they don't work
so well. There is a reverse thread at the top of the shank, I guess for
power, that prevents the materials from being drawn together. Does any-
one know of this type of screw that comes with a bare shank at the top?
Which BTW, works really well in conjunction with the paper catalog. Find
the part number you need in the print catalog, enter it in the search area
and voila, you are taken to the part you want. Goes pretty darn quick.
