Easily broken
I was told by the hardware associate that these screws were the best screws HD sold. 1 year later, I'm checking my deck screws and find that 1 out of 30 screws has snapped in half in the wood. I'm willing to bet the manufacturer won't assist me to get this resolved.

Screws do not countersink in Composite deck boards
I purchased these screws when building a handicapped ramp using composite deck boards. On the box at Home Depot, it says “for all exterior material applications.” I assumed they would be fine for composite decking. All of the screws mushroomed and only about 30% of them countersunk. Because of a time constraint, I had to continue to install all 650 screws. Now as I’m looking on line to see if I chose wisely, I see the packaging says for “wood deck” boards. I chose poorly based on the packaging. I have to go back to the job and remove the screws, bore out the mushrooming and replace all the screws. Not to mention needing to buy more screws and throw away $49 worth of screws on a Pro Bono handicapped ramp. Very disappointed.

ABSOLUTE JUNK
These are the absolute WORST SCREWS I have ever used. They break post installation, usually at the top of the threads. The deck boards were pre-drilled with a drill guide, and each screw was installed with a DeWalt drill, stopping just short of the surface, then countersunk by hand with a 1/4" ratchet. Fortunately I was only on the third row, when I notice a screw on the first row sticking up slightly. I tried to snug it down, and it just spun. I checked all the other screws on that row, and to my horror, found 13 out of 36 broke. I researched, and found multiple articles going back over 10 YEARS about these screws breaking !! I returned them, and bought S.S. 305 Grip-Rites, which I should have done to start with. Stay very far away from this junk.

The new thread design is not as good as the old.
I have been buying DeckMate screws for a long time. I bought 5 lbs at a time and use them up over years on projects. I recently bought a 5 lb box of 3" with the new thread design and it strips out easy compared to the old. I recently dug thru my bin to find old ones and with a direct comparison the old ones keep going into the wood where the new ones strip out before the head sinks in. I tried it like with at least 10 different pieces of lumber same results. The box says the new threads are patented, and the bumps in them may help keep them from backing out, but they are not good in my opinion. I included a picture of the old and new for comparison.

The screws come with a star head and a star attachment for your power drill. They are coated and are recommended for exterior use on decks. My deck is Fiberon material so I used the screwless brackets instead of screws. My foundation is made up of treated 2x6 joists. I Used these screws to join them together. Better than nails.
