Hex Washer Head ZIP Screws

Self-Piercing Screws
Also known as:
Needlepoint Screws, Sheet Metal Screws and Speed Points

Perfect for HVAC and Gutter Contractors

HVAC and gutter contractors often fasten a wide range of components during the course of their work. To get the job done and to create stable connections, they often rely on ZIP screws. What are ZIP screws? They are fasteners that feature a threaded design that tapers to a fine point. These screws offer incredible penetrating power because their threads are machined all the way down to the end of the point. What’s more, these screws include a second thread which catches just after the first penetration, sending the fastener into its space twice as quickly.

One might think that this type of design sacrifices strength and durability, but nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, these screws are manufactured using a heat treating process that helps them maintain their strength.

Keep in mind that HVAC and gutter contractors are doing a great deal of fastening, but that they also need those fasteners to hold for years to come. When you need to secure HVAC components, gutters, downspouts and similar components, you need to rest assured that those fasteners are going to keep things together.

If you’re wondering how to use zip screws, know that they are simple, easy, strong and secure — which makes using them as simple as possible.

Industries That Use Gutter Screws

You may see ZIP screws described as “needlepoint” screws in some places, which is simply a nod to their unique design. The two most common industries that use these screws are the HVAC industry and gutter industry. HVAC contractors use these screws for both installation and fabrication, and gutter contractors use these screws for installation of both gutters and siding.

These industries are able to use ZIP screws because they are available in so many different styles and dimensions. As you’re browsing for screws in our selection, be aware that each product includes both a length and shank size — the latter of which simply describes the diameter of the screw itself. The higher the number, the wider the shank. The most common shank sizes are 6, 8 and 10, which correspond to head diameters of 1/4-inch (6 and 8) and 5/16-inch (10).
