Lower Torque

To reduce wood splitting, the patented StarForm™ thread in the RapierStar®screws range lowers torque.


The StarTurn™ head greatly improves screwdriver seating and frictional grip, increasing bit life for both Cross Recess and StarDrive™. This is because the screws have a deeper recess and an innovative double countersunk design.
