Product Details

The Strong‑Drive® SD Connector Screw is used with our connectors. Designed to replace nails in certain products, the load-rated Strong‑Drive® SD Connector screw has been tested and approved for use in many popular Simpson Strong‑Tie® products.

In certain applications screws are easier and more convenient to install than nails, and the single-fastener load values achieved by the SD9 and SD10 exceed those of typical 10d common or 16d common nails, respectively. In addition, the galvanised coating makes the Strong‑Drive® SD Connector screw ideal for interior and most exterior conditions.

The Strong‑Drive® SD Connector screw features an optimised shank, specifically designed for capability with the fastener holes in Simpson Strong‑Tie® connectors.

These coated fasteners possess a level of corrosion resistance that makes them suitable for use in some exterior and corrosive environments and with some preservative-treated timber.
For applications in higher-exposure applications, consider Type-300 series stainless-steel fasteners for superior corrosion resistance. Bit(s) included with every box of screws.
Pre-drilling and countersink may be necessary at ends, butt joints, and on applications where denser material is used. Follow board manufacturers recommendations where applicable.
