Carpenter Mate hex head screws are a direct replacement for the M10 coach bolt. The conventional way of joining two or more timbers together involves drilling a pilot hole, hammering a bolt through and securing the joint with a washer and nut. You’ll know how difficult to it is to access both sides of the timber using this traditional method, as structural projects often involve working in tight spaces.

A hex head screw significantly improves the efficiency of this process. With a Carpenters Mate self-drilling screw you do not need to pre-drill or use additional bolts and washer, meaning you can quickly secure your timber structure with access to the joint from one side only.
