- Grabber’s Pro-Fit™ # 2 Phillips recess is a precision recess designed for better bit engagement resulting in less wobble or strip-out.
- Head dies are changed more frequently, screws are more evenly heat treated resulting in better formed and stronger heads that resist popping off as screws seat.
- Grabber fine thread screws begin with the best available materials and conform to strict manufacturing requirements in thread forming. Extra sharp twin thread screws drive faster and hold better in light gauge metal.
- Grabber’s extra sharp 23˚ Streaker® point design starts immediately and is much less likely to flop over.
Use a standard screw gun with a depth-sensitive nose piece. Suggested screw gun specification for optimal performance - Gauges #6 - #10, up to 4,000 RPM.
- For gypsum board, the bugle head is fully seated when the screw is below the surface of the wallboard in accordance with Section 7.2.2 of ASTM C1002.
