#10 Flat head phillips drive self tapping screws made of 316 stainless steel. Sometimes called sheet metal screws or self tappers, these stainless steel fasteners are common for home repairs as well as installing hardware on your boat. Flat Head is the most common screw head type, and is used for general fastening when the screw head will be flush with the surface, or when it will be countersunk and the hole will be plugged. Phillips drive allows greater torque to be applied when fastening.

When it comes to resisting corrosion in the harsh salt water environment, passivated 316 stainless steel is the undisputed champ. Its high Nickel content together with a small percentage of Molybdenum make it exceptionally resistant to salts. 316 stainless steel fasteners are really the very best choice for all construction exposed to salt spray. Self Tapping screws are designed for use in sheet metal but are great for mounting hardware onto laminates wood or many other applications. All of our Self Tappers have an A point.

what drill bit do i use ?
Hi,You should not need a drill bit if it is a true self tapper.If you do need a pilot hole use a 3/32 bit
NEVER as you ship it as a flat head tapered screw. not it!!
This product as shipped is absolutely as advertised. It ships as a tapered screw vs.being advertised as a screw with parallel sides. What I wanted is as your product is advertised not as shipped. I am still seeking a screw as you have it advertised with flat head and parallel sides #8 3/4". If acceptable I may want to order 1,000 but will not until I see an example of the screw as advertised.You really missed it on this one.
