What Others Are Saying About Us:
I have begun using your screws in my products and my customers really love them. I use them as my standard line fastener since they are the least expensive of the three fasteners I use (yours, solid cut thread brass and silicon bronze) but several customers have said they like the looks of them as much or more than the others. They are also great in the shop. Easy to drive. Almost never cause splitting and I have only ever broken one when I inadvertently drove it into a not in a piece of birch.

I am retired and a very serious woodworker with a great shop. I have a screw supplier I have worked with for some time and was satisfied with their service until I had the opportunity to deal with your staff and organization I had an unusual application for screws that would go through wood to metal. My normal source didn’t have anything for the project but they suggested I call you and gave me your web site. I called and spoke with Steven explaining what I needed. He walked me through your web site and found the exact screw I needed. He was patient with explanations and reasons for the choice. It was a great experience with an exceptional outcome. I understand that we are in the same state but my call was after 4 PM and I received the products the NEXT DAY. Unbelievable!!! Please understand that in the future all of my orders for screws will go to Screw Products Inc. The customer service, products and prices are number 1. Thanks again, Bob Brown, Rochester, WA
I stopped by the job site today and there were my guys with their Screw Products kit out attaching a post on the front porches that we are currently working on in a condo complex. I couldn't help but take a few pictures of your screws on the job site. I just thought you may enjoy seeing them. Thanks to your salesman, Dave Ondich, who showed us your product to begin with, we think your screws are the best! We will be re-stocking within the next few days. Bruce Verblaauw - C.

I have been building decks and other outdoor products. The deck screws I was using previously were mostly Phillips head screws and hard to drive in correctly. Too many pilot holes to drill which really slowed a project. I recently had a rather large outdoor garden to build using pressure treated lumber. I visited my Do It Best hardware store and found the screw I thought would do the job. The screw was the HDB104. The screw with the T-25 head was a real pleasure to use. The screw DID NOT slip while driving it home. Pilot holes were not needed. The screw pulled tight every time.
This is the screw I will be using for other projects that come up this year!
Thanks, Chris F
I just wanted to take a minute and THANK YOU and your staff for always being there for us. We had an incident a couple of weeks ago and needed some “white headed” C-Deck screws. You didn’t carry that particular color. This was unusual as nearly every time we have called looking for a “different” or “specialty” screw you usually have it or can get it. Your extremely cordial and efficient manager – Kate – was very apologetic and asked if she could call me back. With-in 30 minutes I had received a call from her indicating that she was currently making some to get me through the next day and would have them shipped out by the afternoon’s shipment for arrival to me in the morning. At the same time she had placed an order for us in her regular order of colored screws being made back east to follow the one’s she had just made.
That incident made me think of the many times we have needed something special or even anything you carry and have ALWAYS been greeted with kind, courteous, swift and efficient staff as well as fast and timely deliveries. Added to this is perfect service is being able to purchase these exemplary screws for usually less than the going price. We have been asked several times by your competitor’s to try their brand and we have tried them all. I am not allowed by my three crews and sales staff to purchase any other screw than your C-DECKS.
I believe we are going on about 6 years in doing business with Screw Products Inc. screws and fasteners. Rest assured we will continue this wonderful relationship we have with you and your staff and from ALL of us at BHD Construction a big THANK YOU.

I have been using the Star Drive screw for over 20 years for my business and personal projects. Once I started using the Star Drive screw, I immediately threw out my Square and Phillip’s Drive screws.
Screw Products, Inc offers a much needed variety of different size screws and Star Drives for different applications. I find myself using more of their Star Drive screws than nails in my building projects. I also use their assortment of cabinet screws for finish carpentry.
Working with these screws makes for a more efficient, quicker job because you never have to pre-drill before inserting the Star Drive screw.
I use the larger lag screws from Screw Products Inc. when building log homes, instead of the conventional lag bolts. I also use the star drive exterior lag screws for deck applications, instead of nails.
I will never go back to any other screw; Screw Products Inc. offers the best screws available.

...And a Merry Christmas to all of you too! You guys are one of my favorite businesses and I wish you a very Prosperous New Year. You deserve it! , A great product and dedicated customer service. A couple hundred MBAs could learn a lot from each of you!
As a remodel contractor, wood-worker, and handyman I have used many of Screw Products 'Ultimate Wood Screws.' My first experience was with their 'Gold Star' torque-drive screws 8 years ago. I bought some to do some tricky remodel framing and was impressed from the get-go. I just couldn't break one of these screws. They self-start right through knots in old doug fir and won't 'cam out' like philip's head screws. It's amazing how little effort it takes to drive these screws. No pushing necessary. Hanging off the top of a ladder at full reach I really appreciate this. My 18 volt cordless impact driver doesn't even start rattling until the 3 1/2" screw is almost completely sunk.
The self-counter-sinking knurls really do work on these screws. I've even used them in melamine and they countersink so cleanly it looks like a drilled hole--not a chip. They even countersink into the densest tile backer board.
The price is right, too. I haven't bought anyone else's torque-drive screws since I found these. I don't use Philip's-head screws for anything but drywall anymore. Square-drive screws are a step up from Philip's, but for pretty much the same price, these Screw Product Star Drive screws are the only way to go. These are the only screws that--when you use them to screw a temporary cross-brace onto a wall, and then you back them out again when the brace is no longer needed--you put them back into your tool-bags and use them again (and again) later.
I've used the Gold Star, Bronze Star, AZQ-compatible, heavy duty construction, Lag and Stainless screws and have never been let down. If you've ever built a cedar fence using square-drive stainless screws, or tried to tie down hidden decking fasteners with little square-drive coated screws, you've probably had the same frustrating experience I had with stripped heads, worn-out and slipping drive bit inserts and broken screws. With the Screw Products star drive screws, this just isn't the case. I framed a 400 sq/ft. deck and used the same T25 bit --in wet pressure treated with AZQ compatible screws-- all day without any slippage.
I love their modified truss head screws for 'sucking' warped lumber together, and the big heavy duty construction screws can be a super time-saver compared to low-grade common steel lag bolts. --They come AZQ compatible, too--just the thing for mounting heavy-duty gate hardware on pressure treated posts.
The big box home centers are finally carrying some torque-drive screws, but the quality, price and ease of use does not compare to the Screw Products line. Don't waste your time. Order some of these and always have them in your truck.
To Screw Products: Thank you. You guys have saved me A LOT of time and money. And driver bits, drill bits, countersinks...--Rob J.
Professional carpenter for 22 years. Other screws do not compare. Far from home on a job,, I let my box of Bronze Stars run dry. I had to go to [major large hardware store]. [major large hardware store] Star drive screws are less expensive but [major large hardware store] screws frustrate me horribly. The thread length on [major large hardware store] screws goes too close to the head of the screw which makes the [major large hardware store] screws have no pulling power when trying to fasten 2x lumber. You have to sink the head of the [major large hardware store] screw 1/2"+ before it will begin to pull the 1-1/2" thick pine to the joist. The [major large hardware store] screws put much more drag on a drill driver and carpenter. Screws from Screw Products are noticeably superior to [major large hardware store] screws. Screw Product's start easier, pull much, much better, create much less drag on drill and carpenter, and they come out much, much cleaner and easier when you need to back up and adjust. When you are happy to back up and adjust, your End Product will be much better. Don't let your box of Screw-Products' Star Drive Screws run low. Always keep a spare box in reserve. You can never have enough. These screws may be a bit more expensive but they will really save you time and frustration and your End Product will be better. I really appreciate the high quality of Screw-Products. Their Customer service is Fantastic. Their product knowledge is perfect, they are always kind and helpful, and they always ship to me the same day I order. Don't hesitate. Enjoy your work! - Joel
I love doing business with you. Prompt (my order arrived the next day), exactly what I wanted, great product, great price. Thanks, Dick
I just wanted to thank you for getting these to me so quickly. I ordered these at 6 pm CST and had them by 10 am the next day. You just put me ahead of schedule by two days. Thanks for the great service. I won’t think twice about using you next time. SD, Austin, TX
Those screws are awesome. I have searched everywhere for a screw that works well on tongue and groove knotty pine and all of them have issues. These screws are just awesome. They work great! Thanks!
I like many others have suffered through different types of fasteners, from modified phillips to square drive looking for one that worked as advertised. Since I discovered Screw Products, I have found a fastener that works every time. From cabinets to decks your products are always my first choice. Thank you.
Thank you for being so easy to do business with. This is the fifth or sixth time I've ordered from you and I always have had prompt service. Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas.
Just installed a new trex dock. Home Depot didn't have composite screws in stainless. Your screws arrived to save the day ... they look great and were much easier to install than square head screws. - Jody
Just a quick note to say "thank you" for your fast and efficient service. - Walt H
Thank you, I enjoy doing business with you people and recommend your products to all those I work with. - Ted C
I was very impressed with your Star Drive deck screws. In the past, I have used various square drive screws with poor results. The screws would still slip and round their heads, which is unacceptable on a finished composite deck. The Star Drive screws never slipped and I didn't have to drill pilot holes. Overall, I was very impressed with your product and the speed of shipping. - Brad A.
Great service- Great products. George R.
I always receive excellent, and timely service from your company
I have not used the screws yet but the product looks like it should work just fine. The web site was easy to navigate and my order arrived right on time and in great shape. I look forward to trying these screws real soon. Thank you. Rich S.
You are the only business that I have worked with that concern for the customer seems more than just words and I thank you for that. The staff I have talked to are great. Order is fast and accurate. You have made a "customer for life". I have given your screws to contractors and cabinet reps. I am a kitchen designer/sales.
YES! the order arrived on time and so far I very pleased with what I've used. As I use more of the order I'll know more about what I'll order in the future.
Since I discovered your screws some 4 years ago, I use nothing else. They are without a doubt the finest woodworking screws I have ever used. I recently made a gift of a 5# jar of exterior screws to a friend of mine that has a small business making carved wooden gates to order and she couldn't wait to call and tell me how very pleased she was with your product. Needless to say, she will be another of your satisfied customers (once she runs through the 5# of screws). - Silvio P.
The screws lived up to your advertised claims in spades! I am very pleased with their quality. Other stainless screws were constantly torquing out. I wasted considerable money on mutilated screw heads. Not one of your screws failed to drive true 1st time - no waste! - James P.
I originally ordered the starter set of outdoor screws and began using them to secure mounting blocks for crown moulding. Now I actually use the screws themselves to install the crown moulding right into the top plate of the wall. You don't realize how well these stars screws really work until you run out of them and have to use a phillips or square drive. I'll keep using them!!!! - Daniel P.
I ordered the star screws because I got tired of cam out and they sure solved the problem. Additionally they stay on the bit so I can get them down to start the screw - a great time saver. These folks are nice and very helpful - this makes them a great place to do business. - Jon L.
Hi. On Saturday, 4/29 I stopped by the Screw Products desk at the Puyallup Woodworkers Show. In a matter of a few minutes discussion with you folks, I realized that I had made a bad choice in selecting screws to sister joists in my garage. I ordered 700 CCTX0516300 Lag Screws. AS YOU PROMISED, they arrived at my doorstep today! As a test, I immediately took two of these screws and using two badly cupped, 3’ long, 2 X 12 boards, I tested the screws ability flatten the boards. It was PERFECT!!!
Many thanks for the great advice!
Many thanks for the great products!
Many thanks for delivering exactly as you promised!
"I have been installing kitchen cabinets for the last few years and had started out using the square drive screws that came with one of the brands of cabinets I install. I had ran down and almost out and was not going to pay the prices that they wanted. So I hit the internet. No luck with what I was looking for in the square drive. Then I found SCREW PRODUCTS, INC.'s web site and order a couple to just try them out. Well I have been hooked ever since. I use every size screw from #8 - 1" to #10 - 4" for everything. I even went through an 18v Ryobi drill that couldn't keep up and had to replace it. I could not be more impressed by a product. I have homeowners looking at the installations and see these screws and they are also impressed by the speed I am able to put these kitchens together and the strength of these screws. Thanks again, A devoted customer."
Wow, What a pleasant surprise!!! I can't tell you the number of companies I have written to for suggestions and you are the only one to answer. When we moved in we took the carpeting off the floor and lo and behold beneath that terrible old carpet were these wonderful hard wood floors - that really squeek. We will purchase the fasteners and get to work.
My employees tell me that driving them is much easier on their arms and shoulders with virtually no pushing needed to keep the bit in the head of the screw. They also say that the screws back out as easy as they go in, which allows us to reuse them. They have yet to have a head twist off, strip out, or a screw break. Most contractors would agree, that not a day goes by without one of those things happening. I see this as a cost savings to McFarland Cascade. We will highly recommend your Star Drive Wood Screws to all the contractors and do-it-yourselfers. I only wish you would have come out with these years ago.

I tested them in 2 inch solid hardened mahogany (used in rail car decks). All other screws broke as soon as the screw head met the deck or they snapped off as soon as I tried to remove them. The gold star screws however, not only didn't break but they counter sunk themselves one inch below the surface and I was still able to remove them without one single breakage. At first I thought I couldn't afford the best, but in reality I can't afford to use anything but the best!

Thanks for your quick response to my order. I received the order the following day. Great service and not only that...the Star Drive Screws are the best I have seen. I will be ordering many more in the near future. Dick Iversen, Guemes Island, WA
