Collated screws are known in which the screws are connected to each other by a retaining strip of plastic material. Screws carried by such strips are adapted to be successively incrementally advanced to a position in alignment with and to be engaged by a bit of a reciprocating, rotating power screwdriver and screwed into a work piece. In the course of the bit engaging the screw and driving it into a work piece, the screw becomes detached from the plastic strip, leaving the strip as a continuous length.
