A free bit is included in each box of 100 screws and the per piece price will be as much as 50% lower than the exact screw at Home Depot.
Home Depot is a retail store with limited space for stocking a large variety of products. Home Depot screws are no exception because the most popular diameter and lengths of the Tapcon® brand concrete screws are carried, but many of the sizes available are not stocked. When using a concrete screw, it is imperative that the correct diameter and length of screw is used and that a smaller, shorter or longer concrete screw is not used in its place. Using a smaller or shorter Tapcon® concrete screw may affect the holding value and a longer screw may not work at all.
