Comments about Squeeeeek No More® Scored Screws (3251):
One of the best things I ever did when it comes to reviews is totally ignore the 1 and even the 2 stars. They rarely tell the whole story and often misuse the product and generally are a waist of time.
I almost misused the Squeeeeek No More. I had put down about 300 regular screws in our living room when we pulled the rug up and decided to go with laminate. The floor was still the same, so I bought 500 of the Squeak no more screws. We put down a couple dozen and they did not seem to be working either. We seemed to be missing the joist and the stud finder was giving us inconsistent data. I looked under the house and the joist were 16" centers, but they did not line up with the top layer of the sub floor ends. The 1/2" plywood 2nd layer was attached to the first layer, but did not line up to the joist, so we drilled several 1/8" holes to find the joist using a 2 1/4" paper clip and snapped chalk lines. We decided to predrilled all our holes to make sure we continuously hit the joist. It actually went fairly fast as we used new drills.
HUGE difference. The little jig was great too. You basically screwed the screw into the center of the jig and it snapped when it pulled against the joist. When it did not snap, we found that we missed the joist, so we put the screw over a little. Don't push too hard when you first start drilling or the screws will bend because they are scored so that they will break off. Screw the screw about an 1" from the jig, then go ahead and run it down.
Another side benefit of using the Squeeeeek No More screws is that they are slightly below the surface. This was a big benefit because we had to sand the floor with a belt sander to get rid of some ridges. The nails would rip the belt, but the Squeeeeek No More were not in the way at all.
All in all, this is one inexpensive product that delivers on it's promise, and that I would highly recommend to anyone who takes the time to understand how it works and makes sure they are hitting the joist and using it right.

Comments about Squeeeeek No More® Scored Screws (3251):
We have a hundred-year-old Victorian house and the stairs squeak. Not just a gentle squeak, but something that makes you tip toe up the stairs so you do not wake the children.
We saw Squeeeeek No More on This Old House and gave them a try. It takes 10 screws per stair tread for us, but they do the job. And we discovered that you do not really have to use the fixture in tight spots, so we just use pliers to break off the top and can get into corners, etc. when needed.
