Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by prizmeye OK, But Overpriced for What They Are
They "work" for their intended purpose. The square (Reed?) head and included bit work well together. Note that they are NOT "self-drilling" (which would have been nice, since drilling a new hole to adjust the gutter grade/flow line is tough w/ the existing gutter in your way (think about it). I split my fascia, as I had no room to pre-drill. They are NOT galvanized, so if you're in a state other than a dry one (I'm in S. California, so no worries), their simple, hardware-store-bolt zinc finish will corrode more rapidly than desirable, in all likelihood. The paint seems to be of good quality. The aluminum ferrules are light-duty, but functional. I'm aware of no alternatives that are convenient. Can you tell I feel they're overpriced for what they are? ;o)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overfifty Great product.
Recent ice storm had pulled original nails and I kept having to hammer them back in to keep gutters flush. No problem after installing these screws. Yes I recommend this product. I give it five stars

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Arty Only worked on 50%
They are a well made product and well packaged, however the diameter of the thread was too small and they fitted correctly in only 50% of the holes that the old spikes went in. Had they been a larger diameter they would have worked excellently but they are only a little larger than the old spikes and their resultant holes and did not tighten up. If they had an option of a larger diameter then they would work fine. I am still looking for an alternative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Willie right tool for the job
the handyman installing the screws into existing, but sagging, rain gutter couldn't find the small square tipped fastener in the box. he had to go back to HD to get a bit for the screw.
When he got halfway through the box of screws, he found the fastener bit.
The fastener bit should be placed on top, perhaps in a plastic bag that would be noticeable. His trip to and from HD cost me an extra hour of labor.
It hasn't rained since he installed the screws in the rain gutter so I don't yet know if they worked. No reason they shouldn't work if the screw tip was set deep enough into the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tippodriver Work as advertised
These screws appear to be the only reasonable choice to repair the problem gutter spikes in a gutter system that is otherwise fine. They are an easy installation, have better aluminum sleeves than the originals in my gutters which should reduce or eliminate some of the leaks I had before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BruceB Outstanding Product great price
Used these gutter screws to replace the gutter spikes that had begun to back out and loosen. The screw thread root diameter was perfect. Every screw bit in and should hold tight. Very satisfied. No more drooping gutters.
Do NOT use the included driver bit!! It is softer than the screws and twisted off plugging the screw head on the second screw. Changed to a proper square drive bit and installed 60 screws without a problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terry Excellent replacement for nails
Nails holding up my continuous guttering kept backing out of fascia. I installed these screws and have no problems since. Originally put some in 4 years ago and there still in. The only minor draw back was I had to purchase a long drill bit, and misplaced the square driver for the screws once.
