Kreg screws are built with unique features that work together to ensure the strongest joint possible, easy driving, and the smallest chance of splitting your material. Choosing Kreg screws means you expect the best possible results, but to get these results you need to choose the best Kreg screw for your particular project. Choosing the right screw is straightforward once you understand the features of each screw type and how these features impact the success of your project.
Head style: Maxi-Loc - These washer-head screws are recommended for the majority of applications. The large head provides maximum bearing surface, helping to ensure the strongest joint possible.
Thread style: Hi-Lo Thread - For use as a general-purpose screw and with medium hardwoods such as Poplar.
Composition: Zinc - Our zinc coated screws are recommended for a wide variety of indoor projects where exposure to moisture is not a significant concern
Length: 1-1/4" - The most important part of choosing the right screw for your application is selecting the correct screw length. As a general rule, we suggest using the screw lengths shown when joining like material thicknesses, such as 3/4" to 3/4" material. The fully threaded design of most standard screws can actually push the two workpieces apart when being tightened. The unique design of Kreg Screws eliminates this problem and ensures the joint pulls tightly together.
