Hardwood Decking: Trim head Deckfast Stainless screws are recommended.

Pre-drilling: Pre-drilling is usually required for hardwoods. Smart-Bit Pre-drilling and Countersinking Tools are specifically designed to work together with Headcote 305 and 316 (as well as Starborn's Deckfast 305 and 316 deck screws) to create the perfect hole and perfect fit every time.

Perfectly Set Fasteners: To achieve a clean and uniform appearance, with screws set at a perfect and consistent depth below the surface, use the new Smart-Bit Deck Screw Depth Setter.

Corrosion Information: Approved for use with ACQ treated lumber. For applications exposed to salt air, near large bodies of water, swimming pools or other areas where corrosion is more likely to occur, always use Grade 316 stainless steel screws (like Deckfast® Stainless 316 or Headcote® 316).
