Pointy self tapping screws for ducts?


The box stores do a crappy job of organizing these kinds of fasteners. I ended up using #10 hex-head ones to attach a fair bit of network & tv coax with zip ties (1/4" ones were too small for the loop in the ties). Best way to purchase them was from a pack on an electrical end-cap that included the plastic wall anchors (which get recycled in the trash).

Ordered from my local HD because it said they had 5 in stock and it was cancelled 20 minutes later. Ordered from another one near my job. Hopefully they actually have them.

Our Home Depots in Vegas carry the good screws with the wicked point on the end. I wont use self tappers for sheet metal, self tappers also strip out easily.
Like mentioned earlier, supply houses have the big tubs of them also.

All I needed was a name so I could track them down. I'll just order online and pick them up at the store so I won't even have to hunt them down. Assuming they have them since half the time it says they have 40 in stock and when you get there they have zilch. Thanks so much!
just glad i could help.
