Fasteners for a lasting, firm hold
Know your threads
Thread shape: Threads are changing rapidly. A composite screw's shank usually has opposing threads designed to keep the lower threads from spinning out in less-dense natural material (i.e., a wood floor joist). Spax, a composite screw, even has serrated threads (shown) to improve cutting ability and reduce torque.
