Stainless Steel Square Head Auger Point Deck Screws. Single Auger point Deck Screws are excellent for outdoor applications. Self Drilling Type 17 Auger points are great for pressure treated lumber and other decking materials. You cannot get away without predrilling your screwholes but Auger points certainly make it easier to drive into hardwoods. Marine grade Stainless Steel for excellent outdoor corrosion resistance.
These deck screws have a bugle head. A bugle head has a comparatively small head diameter to the width of screw shank. Combined with a curved radius undercut (like the shape of a bugle), the bugle head eliminates the need to countersink.

Used for years in outdoor deck woods. Make sure you drill a pilot hole for best performance and use new and not old driver bits.

I use these when building outdoor furniture made from red cedar and pressure treated pine. They work great and hold up very well, even in saltwater environments. they never stain the red cedar, which typically stains using non-stainless hardware and fasteners. I always drill pilot holes in my work to avoid splitting the wood, however these are self drilling and in some cases can be used without drilling a pilot hole. Since they are stainless steel and not as tough as standard fasteners, be mindful the heads can fracture off when installing in harder woods. Just use common sense and you'll be fine. I've been purchasing these for years and never had any issues. I will continue to buy these for years to come!

Facing the ocean our home takes a beating from the rain sand and wind not to mention salt air. Anything metal corrodes quickly, iron rusts if not constantly repainted. Building a fence you would see the galvanized nails corrode just as any other metal except stainless steel. These SS screws take the beating from the coastal elements and do not corrode. High quality and well engineered I recommend these for anyone building a deck or fence in a coastal environment.
