It does fit pretty close, but you can see when you twist it, there's a little slop in there. And that means it's not the perfect fit. This is called a pozidriv screw. And it's actually got a little bit of a different head and you can see it's got these little slots here that are tapered in, in between the plus. And when you put this one in, it is a perfect fit. Metal Corner BracketsSo this pozidriv is meant for this sort of job. And if you use a Phillips, it's not going to grab quite the same. Yeah. Now, typically when you purchase the screws, they'll often have the screw type listed right on them. So you can see this one says a #2 Phillips drive, and then most of the time the bits are also labelled. So right there, do you see the PH2? That means there's a Phillips 2. That one will match. So when we put this one in, it should sink in there perfectly. And allow you to get a good drive. Now tip number two. Is to get the proper angle of attack. Large metal corner brackets.

So right here, if I've got my screwdriver lined up perfectly, it's going to drive just fine every time. It's going to fully engage in that head. And it's going to give me a nice, easy time. As soon as I get this out of line, it slips off. It'll spin in there. And that's where, especially if I'm using a drill, it's going to start to just strip that screw head completely. Any angle that you get off, that's usually one of the main causes for things not grabbing and stripping screws, but as soon as you line it right up like this, then it grabs and just threads Outdoor Screws in just like it should. Now tip number three is applying the proper. Amount of pressure or torque to get the job done. So this screw right here, I've got the right Phillips bit. This is a number two, and I'm also going to make sure to line it up properly.
And what happens if I just do this really lightly without proper torque, it's going to just twist away from there. It hops out. It'll start to skip, especially as I encounter some pressure and it gets more difficult and I'm just starting to strip the screw here. It's just not working. But as soon as I apply some proper downward pressure on this, then it's going to hold in and it's going to start moving the way we need it to. So make sure you're applying a lot of pressure directly down. You've got the right bit and you've got it lined up properly. The shaft of the screwdriver with the shaft of the screw. Now, one thing to keep in mind is that these same principles apply. Whether you're using a hand screwdriver or a drill or an impact driver, they all work the same. Those three tips need to apply all the time. So this little screw right here, for example, I've got the right size. Number two on there.
