FlatLOKTM Structural Wood Screws

55-miflk

Reference Series: SDW
FlatLOK is a multi-purpose structural wood screw that can be used for fastening multi-ply SCL, dimensional beams and girder trusses. The low-profile flat head allows for easy attachment of finishing materials such as drywall.

The FlatLOK screw has a shank diameter of 0.227” and is stamped with head mark for easy length identification. The proprietary coating provides protection that exceeds the protection provided by HDG coatings conforming to ASTM A153. FlatLOK may be used for interior and exterior applications and in pressure treated (ACQ) wood.

The FlatLOK wood screw features a TORX® ttap® drive system that maximizes bit fit, reducing the potential for stripping. The stability button allows for maximum penetration into the fastener and a wobble-free drive. A free TORX ttap bit is included in every box.

Materials: Heat-treated carbon steel

Finish: Proprietary coating
