In addition to a Torx-head design that eliminates cam-out slippage, these innovative self-countersinking screws feature six cutting pockets beneath the head and sharp, saw-like lower threads to drive through a variety of materials smoothly, without tearing. Ideal for exterior purposes such as building a deck. Torx/Star-head driver bits also available.


The R4™ is a multi-purpose screw that can be used in all woodworking and plastic applications and is great for the following:
  • Wood
  • Cement Fiber Board
  • Particle Board
  • Composite Decking
  • Plastic
  • Wood Decking
  • Sheet Metal
  • Melamine

Features:
  • R4 CLIMATEK™ coated screws are tested and approved for all exterior applications including pressure treated lumber as stated in the ICC report #ESR-2442.
  • Sub-head cutters create clean countersunk holes without damaging the surface- even in brittle materials.
  • Eliminates pre-drilling in most cases
  • Fits perfectly into existing countersunk holes on hinges and other hardware fittings.
  • Screws 2" long or longer have special CEE thread that enlarges screw hole and improves performance.

These fasteners don’t strip and you can’t get them elsewhere. They are excellent for installing cabinets and I will continue to use them. I think I’ve only broken screw one out of the two boxes I’ve used so far. I highly recommend them.

Best fasteners ever
GRK came recommended from an engineering and architectural blog I saw which tested all of the high-end fasteners and GRK came out on top compared to SPAX.

Rockler is the only place that still carries the smaller sizes most useful for woodworking. While the SPAX are also excellent screws, for any large or medium project like mounting and assembling cabinets, tables or shop furniture I always go with the GRK for superior hold and easy of use.

You'll love this
All woodworkers will appreciate this screw. Torx is pretty slip-proof, and these screws, both #6 and #8, have excellent purchase in both soft and hardwoods.

Perfect for my need
Built board and batten shutters and wanted extra holding power so screwed the battens to the boards from behind. Worked like a charm. No stripping. Counter sick on their own. I'm sold. Can't see them in the photo but these shutters are solid.

Terrific multipurpose screw
I initially got some of these for assembling cabinets, and have since added a variety of them for general use as well as washer-head ones for hanging cabinets. They are strong, thread quickly, and the Torx head makes it easy to insert them: the screw tends to stay on the Torx bit for one-handed application, and they never cam out.

Is it possible that the torx screws can be driven with the square driver?
A shopper on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely don't use a square driver- you would harm the screw head and loose the advantage of the Torx head "sure" driving capability. You can buy Torx drivers in hex or as a regular handle version.
Will the coating on these screws make them suitable for an all cedar fence built in the Pacific Northwest?
Lefty on Mar 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use these screws for hardwood furniture and they are strong, but the box leads me to believe they should work outside in your wet world. Good luck.
Will the coating on these screws be suitable for an all cedar fence (built in Pacific NW)?
Lefty on Mar 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes the coating will be suitable for the cedar fence as long as you don't brush the finish off of the head of the screw,once the finish is not any longer there it will rust and then began to detoriate.
Does anyone know where I can get #6 Torx head screws in various lengths? GRK no longer makes them, and #8 screws don't work for small woodworking projects. I hate Phillips heads!
Vince29 on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have had a similar experience with TORX head. I found a #6 square head screw made by GRIP Fast by Mid West Manufacturing, Rochester MN that works great in different lengths. I have also used square head #7 pocket screws. There are several places that make them I got my last ones at Rockler.
are these Torx screws brass nd suitable for marine use?
Frank G on Oct 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No.

GRK makes a stainless steel line which is marketed for use in marine and corrosive coastal environments. While these are rated for use in treated lumber, they are not rated for marine contact.

The product line is called the Pheinox R4 305 or 316 Stainless screws which are Marine rated.
