Are screws and fasteners malfunctioning? This overlooked factor could be why.

Screws and Fasteners


“To create a beam, two pieces of steel will often overlap. Any gaps between those two pieces of steel could be what is causing your screws and fasteners to break tips.”

Here’s why.

If there is any gap between the two pieces of steel, that extra space will interfere with the drilling and threading. This will cause the fasteners to break the drill tip and fail. To stop it from happening, make sure the two pieces fit snuggly together and there is not a gap.
