Grabber Construction Products, an international distributor of professional-grade fasteners and construction products, has developed a new metal framing fastener for light-gauge metal construction. Called 23V, the Vector screw is extremely fast into 25-gauge metal and can be used effectively up to 20-gauge.

Grabber’s new Vector framing screw continues a long tradition of innovation in fastening and fastening systems including Grabber’s LOX recess, Scavenger head drywall screws, and Streaker screws, which feature a unique twin-lead thread design and 23-degree point that effectively halve the drive time into light-gauge steel.

Grabber’s new Vector screw again significantly reduces drive time and increases productivity with its much sharper and steeper-angled point compared to traditional framing fasteners.

Independent testing has demonstrated that Vector point screws drive up to eight times faster than IFI SAE J78 fastener penetration standards and 50 percent faster than competing fasteners.

In a drive comparison with standard framing fasteners, the Vector performed considerably better across the board in multiple drive test comparisons.
