It's in 1908 in his Milton, Ontario factory that the Canadian inventor Peter Lymburner Robertson began the production of socket square drive screws, commonly known as Robertson screws. Although this type of screw is more popular in Canada than in the United States, Kreg has integrated the advantages of this system in its screw design. The square head shape provides greater stability and prevents the driver bit from slipping off its position when drilling with one hand. All Kreg screws also feature a self-taping tip for optimal control and precise drilling.

Kreg offers a wide range of specialized screws suitable for all types of materials and all types of applications. To determine the ideal type of screw to your projects, there are four factors to consider:


Determining the right screw length is essential to achieve perfect results. To help select the right screw length when joining materials of different thicknesses, the SSW Screw Selector Wheel is a useful tool to keep handy for easy reference.

However, if you do not possess the Screw Selector Wheel, use the detailed chart enclosed to help you make a clear choice.

Thread Style:

Coarse-Thread screws are recommended for use with softwoods like cedar, pine, fir, etc. — as well as for sheet goods such as plywood and MDF — that are soft and not very dense. Coarse screws have deep, aggressive threads that bite into those soft fibers to ensure solid holding power.

Fine-Thread screws are the preferred choice for hardwoods like cherry, maple, oak, etc. that are hard and dense. Fine threads are less aggressive, so they’ll drive without splitting, but these screws have a higher number of threads per inch to ensure great holding power.

Head Style:

Maxi-Loc screws are a great choice for the majority of applications. These Kreg Screws have a large head that provides maximum bearing surface as the screw pulls tight in the pocket.

Pan-Head screws are perfect for dense hardwoods and for 1/2" thick stock. Their smaller shank reduces the chance of splitting, and the smaller head allows them to fit places where space is limited and/or tight pocket-hole spacing is desired.


Zinc screws are recommended for a wide variety of indoor projects where moisture is not a concern.

Blue-Kote™ screws are the best choice for damp or wet applications and work with treated lumber.

Stainless screws are designed for use in extreme environments that are exposed to moisture and corrosive elements

In conclusion, although some models of screws are more popular than others, Kreg can offer you a tailored solution adapted to your needs for all your woodworking projects!
