Grabber

Getting jobs done right comes down to making smart business decisions, like using products and partners that match your level of commitment. 

The Grabber Difference comes down to Productivity, Profitability and Problem-Solving.

PRODUCTIVITY
With Grabber contractors and installers can expect consistent, professional performance box after box. Grabber goes above and beyond other brands to deliver exceptional consistency with every fastener, every box.

PROFITABILITY

The real costs of labor and finding greater efficiencies translate into tools as well. Besides offering the core, high-quality tools that contractors depend on, Grabber offers competitive advantages like SuperDrive automated fastening systems and collated fastener programs to significantly increase job productivity.

PROBLEM-SOLVING

Grabber uniquely hires professionals who have worked in the construction industry and have unparalleled knowledge of tools, fasteners, and their applications. Our boots-on-the-ground sales force works hand in hand with professionals to answer questions, solve challenges, and offer smart suggestions to get the job done right.








The Difference: Quality, Consistency & Expertise





BETTER PRODUCTS MEAN BETTER PERFORMANCE
A fastener may be a little thing in a construction project. But the way it performs can have a big impact on crew productivity and the ultimate quality of the project. Grabber’s manufacturing standards produce fasteners that have better consistency and will drive faster, seat better, and be less likely to cam-out and spinout.

Did you know other fasteners include a significantly higher percentage of screws that won’t work? This is called salting. Brands that cut corners are much more prone to box up fasteners that don’t meet spec resulting in inconsistent performance box to box. Yet you’ve paid for them whether you use them or not.


WE MANUFACTURE TO UNREASONABLE STANDARDS

MANUFACTURING STANDARDS:

DIE-CHANGES

THREAds

RECESSes

HEADs


Description

When a thread-rolling die stays in service too long, threads are not as sharp or well formed.  

Dies at most other mills remain in service significantly longer than at Grabber mills, resulting in poorly formed threads and inconsistent performance.


Grabber fastener recesses are more precise. Because they fit a bit tip more tightly, our fasteners are much less likely to cam-out or wobble as they drive in. Recess tolerance is much more consistent so the installer knows what to expect from one screw to another and from box to box.


A more uniform and precise head shape means screws will seat more cleanly and evenly. Grabber changes heading dies more frequently for more precise and consistent fastener head shape.


The Grabber Difference

(# of screws manufactured between Die-Changes)


Fine-thread Screws

  • Grabber: 800K to 1M
  • Other Mills: 1.5-3M  (up to 50% longer)

Coarse-thread Screws

  • Grabber: 1 to 1.2M
  • Other Mills: 1.5 – 3M (20% to 50% longer)

Grabber :80K to 100K

Other Mills: 120– 150K (20% to 50% longer)


Grabber: 800K-1M

Other Mills: 1.2-1.5M (up to 50% longer)


Outcomes & Benefits

Sharper Threads
Screws with sharper threads will drive in and seat faster and are less likely to spin out in metal fastening applications.

  • Benefit: You drive more screws and install more drywall in a day.

More Consistent Threads
Reliable and predictable performance from fastener to fastener and box to box.

  • Benefit: You waste fewer screws and save time and money.

Precise Recesses
Tighter recess tolerances mean better bit engagement and screws that are less likely to cam-out or wobble.

  • Benefit: Less time pulling out screws that cam-out and driving in replacement screws.

Consistent Recesses
Installers can install more screws in a day with fewer hassles.

  • Benefit: Less frustration and waste

Precise Head Shape
Screws will seat cleanly and cause less damage to drywall or other sheathing material.

  • Benefit: Less finishing and touch-up time required

Uniform Heads
Fasteners will seat consistently one fastener to the next.

  • Benefit: Less frustration, unpredictability and disruptions.



MANUFACTURING STANDARDS:

PROCESSES & MATERIALS

heat treatment

spin-cleaning

Wire Quality


Description

Grabber tightly controls heat treating process at its mills, curing fewer screws in a batch to ensure even hardening. Other mills heat treat 20% more, in a batch. Not every mass-treated fastener is heat treated evenly, making more screws subject to head snaps, bending, and more waste per box.

Grabber heat treats fewer screws at a time so that screws are more consistently hardened. Consistent hardening means consistent performance and heads are less likely to snap off and screws are less likely to bend.


Grabber takes extra care to make sure its screws are oil and splinter free.

Grabber thoroughly spin cleans its screws to remove splinters and oil from the manufacturing process.

Other mills often do not clean screws as well leaving oil residue and metal splinters.


Starting with the best material is the foundation for manufacturing professional-grade fasteners. High-grade SAE 1022 steel forms stronger, superior heads and threads for consistent screws that are less likely to break or bend.

Grabber screws begin with the highest quality cold heading SAE 1022 steel wire that has gone through additional manufacturing processes to better prepare the wire to be formed into screws. 


The Grabber Difference

Grabber treats screws in batches that are up to 20% smaller than standard mills with mass heat-treating processes.


Thorough spin-cleaning to remove oil and splinters, a process often given less attention at standard mills.

Outcomes & Benefits

Consistent Hardening from box to box
Installers can expect consistent performance fastener to fastener and box to box.

Benefit: Reliable driving and fewer wasted screws

Even Hardening
Every screw is evenly hardened from head to tip, so they less brittle and less likely to bend.

Benefits: Confidence in every drive


Oil and Splinter free recesses and screws
Oil free screws won’t damage sheathing or require additional clean up.

Clogged recesses can slow driving

Benefits: less clean up, fewer splinters


Fewer impurities

stronger construction, less snapping and bending

Benefits: lest waste
