Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits

  • Heavier shank and thread diameters for maximum strength.
  • Deep thread for high pullout resistance.
  • Extra sharp gimlet point for quick installation into wood substrates through pre-punched holes.
  • In concrete applications, fastener may be reversed out of predrilled hole without damaging the substrate.
  • Low profile head minimizes fastener profile behind edge caps.
  • #3 square drive provides high torque capability.
Product Use

Product Use

Designed as the ultimate fastener used for attaching edge metal systems directly to the substrate.

The combination of the gimlet point and the #3 square drive provides high torque and easy wood boring. For wood, the minimum allowable penetration is 1-in. (25 mm).

For structural concrete 1-in. (25 mm) embedment is the minimum allowable. Pre-drill a 3⁄16-in. (5 mm) pilot hole at least ½-in. (13 mm) deeper than the fastener embedment using a carbide tip SDS or straight shank bit.

Note: Care must be taken not to overdrive the fastener. For best results, use a variable speed 0-2500 RPM screw gun.


The OMG Universal Fastener is provided exclusively with orders of OMG Edge products, and not sold separately.
