TEK® Self Drilling Screws

Self Drilling Screws are commonly known by the brand name TEK® screws. Value Fastener offers a full line of self drilling, thread forming screws, with a wide variety of head styles and finishes that makes it easy to find the right option for nearly any application. Our TEK® screw equals feature special pointed ends that allow them to penetrate thin materials without a starting or pilot hole. These self-drilling, woodworking screws cut their own threads for a secure grip on the mating material. Generally, TEK® self-drilling screws are used for metal-to-metal or metal-to-wood connections, and are most commonly used in thin metal applications such as working with steel studs.

5 Point
5 POINT screws commonly known as TEK® 5 are self-drilling screws made from cold-heading steel. They have a #5 drill point, which is the longest point and can drill through 0.5 inches (12.7 millimeters) of steel. The unique tip design allows them to drill, tap, and fasten metal to metal objects in one operation, without the need to pre-drill.  Self Drilling screws are often distinguished by the length of their drill point. The length determines how thick of material the screw can drill through. The larger the number, the thicker the metal it can go through without a pilot hole. For example, a #4 point can drill through steel that is 0.25 inches (6.35 millimeters) thick.
