FastenMaster Introduces Enhanced GuardDog Exterior Wood Screw

Perfect for exterior applications including pressure treated decking, railings, stair stringers and more, this newly enhanced fastener improves on the original which has been used on thousands of projects over the last decade.

Agawam, MA (March, 2022) – Fas­ten­Mas­ter has released a new and enhanced ver­sion of their ver­sa­tile Guard­Dog exte­ri­or wood screw. Per­fect for exte­ri­or appli­ca­tions includ­ing pres­sure treat­ed deck­ing, rail­ings, stair stringers and more, this new­ly enhanced fas­ten­er improves on the orig­i­nal which has been used on thou­sands of projects over the last decade.

New addi­tions to the Guard­Dog fas­ten­er include a TORX® ttap® Dri­ve Sys­tem that deliv­ers a stick fit, wob­ble-free instal­la­tion, a sharp Type 17 Point for quick cut­ting into the wood sur­face, and cut­ting nibs under the head to deliv­er a clean fin­ished look. 

Guard­Dog has been test­ed and approved for use in treat­ments such as ACQ and CA‑B, and acidic woods like Cedar and Red­wood. This fas­ten­er is guar­an­teed to pro­tect against rust for the life of the project. 

When it comes to cre­at­ing a sol­id wood-to-wood con­nec­tion, pros across the coun­try have cho­sen Guard­Dog as their pre­ferred method of attach­ment,” said Antho­ny DiSan­to, prod­uct man­ag­er for Fas­ten­Mas­ter. With the enhance­ments we’ve made, Guard­Dog deliv­ers on the promise of a faster and clean­er instal­la­tion bet­ter than ever.”
