Interesting. I've never had an issue with the coated deck screws I've used...and I've used thousands.

[QUOTE="J_L"] You hang cabinets with drywall screws? ! Why?

As an old cabinet guy once said "that should hold it until it falls down ".

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.

GRK are the bees knees, except they are pricey. The Grip Right brand is available at HD and has #8 construction screws with the torx head. They work great and are about $15/5# box. For hanging cabinets, the GRK RSS screw is wonderful. Also, the Trim head screw from GRK works great for screwing face frames together. Also, I think GRK are made in Canada, and the Grip Right are made in China if that makes a difference to you.

I'm switching to GRK. I've pretty much ignored the Grip Right but have bought some in the past.

The head on the GRK trim head screws will fit nicely into a 5mm shelf pin hole if you have to secure the side of the cabinet to the wall.
