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.”
GuardDog exterior wood fasteners are available in lengths ranging from 1 5÷8” to 3 ½” and in quantities ranging from 75 piece boxes to 1750 piece buckets.
