Shear strength of nails and screws is something to consider when selecting a fastener for a project. For building construction, building codes come into play and some screws, such as GRK (tested per viewer request), are building code approved for some applications. A total of seven different types of nails and screws are tested in 3 types of tests to determine shear strength of each type of nail or screws. Fasteners: GRK, deck screws, drywall screws, spiral shank, galvanized 16 penny, and 16D sinkers. I purchased all the products tested and am not sponsored by any company or brand.
