Weather-resistant 2.5" Coarse Thread self-tapping screws are specially designed for pocket hole joinery. They feature a self-tapping auger point that eliminates pre-drilling and a flat head that seats flushly in the bottom of the pocket hole. All of our screws utilize a No. 2 square drive recess. The deep recess of the square drive provides positive driver engagement to reduce cam-out. Weather-resistant screws are available in a weather-resistant coating which has properties similar to a zinc plated screw. The coating offers protection from the elements allowing them to be used in outdoor applications.
