Light duty steel-to-steel fasteners ideal for stitching roof deck, wall panel sidelaps or HVAC duct work.
Point to thread design maximizes pull-out performance and minimizes backout.
Unique point to thread ratio extrudes metal during installation, preventing stripout.
Patented ABOT™ Anti-backout threadform is available on ¼-14x7/8” Teks 1.
Sharp convex drill point has precise cutting
edges to improve drill performance with less
Non-walking point provides fast material
Climaseal® finish provides excellent corrosion
resistance and lower tapping torque.

STEP 1: A standard screw gun with a depth sensitive nosepiece should be used to install Teks. For optimal fastener performance, the screw gun should be a minimum of 4 amps and have an RPM range of 0-2500.
STEP 2: Adjust the screw gun nosepiece to properly seat the fastener.
STEP 3: New magnetic sockets must be correctly set before use. Remove chip build-up as needed.
STEP 4: The fastener is fully seated when the head is flush with the work surface.
STEP 5: Overdriving may result in torsional failure of the fastener or strip out of the fastener.
STEP 6: The fastener must penetrate beyond the metal structure a minimum of 3 pitches of thread.
