Don’t settle for less than the best sheet metal screws. In 1976, the industry-leading Malco Zip-in® screws were introduced into the marketplace. Considered by many as the top screw choice for HVAC metal ductwork, these superior screws offer faster driving and greater capacity for fastening heavier gauges of sheet metal than any other self-piercing type.

Malco’s Best Sheet Metal Screws: Zip-ins
Penetrating power in a compact package. Known for superior quality worldwide, Malco’s Zip-ins are made with a sophisticated heat-treat process that allows the screw to taper to a fine, sharp point without sacrificing critical point strength. This consistent hardpoint will not mushroom or break, making it a reliable choice on the job site. Zip-in screws feature a combination-lead double thread design that instantly penetrates and engages in heavy-gauge sheet metal and layered light gauge. For the best performance, use any Zip-in screw with a Malco C-RHEX® Cleanable, Reversible Magnetic Hex Driver. It’s the ultimate duo for any trade pro.
These pan head screws provide the same high-quality performance as our hex models. The fine-tapered, hardened point and combination-lead thread immediately engages metal and quickly seats the screw flush every time. Rest assured that the square drive head will not slip or cam out for optimum safety and performance.
Malco offers the same high-quality Zip-in screws trade pros love, painted in colors to match most gutter and trim coil. These bags of 100 screws have a ¼” head size and are available in royal brown, musket bronze, almond, white, classic cream, and clay. In addition, we offer long-length Zip-in Register Screws with painted white heads that quickly secure registers to walls.
With the best sheet metal screws in your toolkit, you’ll set yourself up for success on the job. Don’t just take our word for it; Gary K. said, “I have been in the industry for over 30 years. As far as I know, I have used Zip-in screws from Malco ever since I started in the trade. In the past 23 years, I have owned my own business. I have tried other screws and always come back to Malco.” It’s time to experience the Zip-in difference for yourself!
