    planning for my outdoor kitchen which screws for studs?

    i'll be starting my build on my outdoor kitchen soon.

    Do you guys use Zync plate screws for the metal studs? Home depot doesn't list any Galvanized self drilling screws only stainless but the one I found are these for Vinyl fences

    You want to use Teks lath screws. They're self tapping for the steel studs. You can get them in boxes of 200 for about 6 bucks. They're at lowes or Home Depot.

    I used Tek as mentioned above. I then found cold galvanizing spray (in the paint section) and sprayed each screw front and back.

    By the time you paint them, you probably might as well have just paid the extra for stainless. I don't see why what you posted wouldn't work.

    I'm not worried about the screw. I'm hedging (with the paint) against the channel.

    I agree that those screws you listed would be fine. I used the same #8 Tek zinc screws mentioned previously.
