The flyer specifically calls-out the 3" screws, so I think not, unfortunately.

Bought these on sale a couple years ago. The Square drive is a bit inconsistent and shallow so the bit slips out on occasion.

square drive is the american knock off. u have to make sure u buy genuine Robertson bits if u have the genuine bits and screws they are tapered and the screw locks in to the screw so well that if u insert the screw driver into the screw then hold it upside down by the screw it will hold the weight of screw driver without falling out the cheap amercian knockoffs wont do it they are just square without the taper.

You will rarely find a Robertson screw, knockoff or not, in the US. In fact, it's kind of hard to find the genuine product at a lot of stores in Canada.

builders in the us like them mike homles got them hooked on them but the companies down there rather then import the good ones they made there own crapper version.

if u buy bits made by Task, rack-a-tier or Boss MFG those ones are guarantee to be genuine since there are official suppliers listed on the roberston site.

Too bad.. I need to replenish 1.5 and 2" ones.

3" is too long for most indoor projects.

The deal is ok not great but the screws are too long and awkward to work with for the DIY crowd.

I found I can never order online with them, I have to call the store. It's a pretty useless website. The people in the stores just walk around and pick my order while I'm on the phone, so at least it's ready right away.

I've grabbed a couple of things from the HH on Vaughan Rd ( Bathurst/St.Clair area) and it was ready next day. A quick knock on the door and you're being served. Dunno about others.

As a contractor I must vouch for HomeHardware being #1 during the lockdown for speed of pickups when there is only curbside pick up. I park outside the HH, call in my order and it's ready for pickup a couple minutes later from the front door.

I also buy ALL my screws from homehardware. Buy their largest size pails/boxes 1200-4000's and it's always a better price than homedepot or lowes by far based on price/peice.

One other tip - I do agree the website functionality is pretty poor. Just open up google and search "item you're looking for - homehardware" and you will have 1000x easier time finding your item on their website.
