Sharper, Faster, More Secure

Screws that will cut your drive time in half!
Vector™ Point Logo

Grabber's new Vector™ Fasteners significantly reduce drive time and increase productivity with a much sharper and steeper- angled point compared to other similar fasteners. Competitive tests have demonstrated that Vector™ point screws drive up to eight times faster than IFI SAE J78 fastener penetration standards and 40% faster than competing fasteners.

How much can you save with Vector™?

Choose a fastener

The average drive time is the combined average from four drive tests comparing 6 x 1 1/4 fine-thread drywall screws. The test consisted of a 35# axial load using a 2500 RPM screw gun into a single layer of 20-gauge, 33-ksi steel.

The average drive time is the combined average from four drive tests comparing 7 x 7/16 fine-thread metal framing screws. The test consisted of a 35# axial load using a 2500 RPM screw gun into a double layer of 20-gauge, 33-ksi steel.

The average drive time is the combined average from four drive tests comparing 7 x 9/16 fine-thread metal lath screws. The test consisted of a 35# axial load using a 2500 RPM screw gun into a double layer of 20-gauge, 33-ksi steel.

*Disclaimer: Calculation is an estimate based on average of testing data and not intended to be an exact determination of time required. Individual drive times may vary based on equipment, materials, and testing conditions.

Fractions of a second may seem negligible. But multiply drive times by the number of fasteners per box, and the difference really adds up into significant wage savings. Slower drive times of competitive products cost contractors $40.28–$346.39 more in wages, per box!
