    Great product! Easy to install.

  2. Jamie Davies

    Used the trial kit, and it gave me confidence to order 16 screws for my garden room project. They quickly and I installed them with the hand-tool within 3 hours. Job sorted.

  3. Rosemary Hayward

    Very straightforward and easy to order. Help to select correct fittings was given. Delivery was ahead of time and all correct. Installation was straightforward using the rented ratchet tool. An excellent product, good to install and does the job 👍👍 In no time at all my workshop/studio was on the way to completion. Would highly recommend using ground screws and would certainly use again.

  4. Jamie Wilson

    Fantastic service from GSC – fast delivery, easy to install onsite and it all worked out much cheaper than using a concrete pad. Next project I’m going to use GSC for sure.
