Every one of them was perfectly straight. The hex drive which came with the screws fit perfectly into the drive slot in the screw heads. The point is specifically designed to prevent cracking wood as it is started through, but I was very cautious and pre-drilled all my holes before screwing plywood to a frame. I've used screws like this before, and I can tell you without any doubt that the "star drive" works far better then any phillips drive.

installation was fine, the problem 6 years later is they are all rusting out. Now I have to buy different screws and take the time to remove and replace.

    This is a great product. I used to use Philip head screws and I hated them, they strip so easily! But ever since I started using these Deck Mate Star Flat-head screws I will never go back. They go in fast and easy without ever stripping. Making my job more efficient.

    These Corrode
    I used these screws and they corroded within six years and came out of my treated lumber deck boards. When I pulled them out they were rusted and the threads were gone.

    Screws rot out right under the head.
    Spent over $120 for all the deck mate screws I used on my deck project and after only 5 years they started to rot right under the head where there are no threads. They thin out in this area from rust and eventually the head pops out. Stay away from these screws and use stainless steel.

    I bought into their claims when I built my porch stairs and deck. But they are trash , the screws are corroding away to nothing and the boards of my deck and steps are coming loose. I can't remove them from the wood because they just twist off because they have corroded away. I will never purchase these screws again and will advise anyone that I know that is building a deck not to use them either.

      I bought a box of these for a project I was working on. I usually buy phillips head because I have a variety of bits to fit that style. This box of fasteners said it included a free star driver so I thought, what the heck, I'll give'em a try. I guess it was foolish of me to assume the free driver would actually fit the screws in the package. True, it doesn't explicitly say that but I thought it was implied. Boy was I surprised to find that the free bit was way too small for the screws. It literally can freely spin around in the star pattern of the screw. Thankfully I had a star driver in my tool box but I will be visiting HD in the next few days to talk to them about this. They seem like good fasteners but my project almost ground to an early halt due to the driver issue.

        I purchased these screws last week and these deckmate screws have a two spiral design which causes the screw to provide minimal holding because they work against each other. The spiral depth is very shallow. The coating also adds to the problem. The screw spins and doesn't hold. I would recommend a single spiral design screw. I wouldn't use these again. I wasted $23.

          The screws very stiff and easy to work with, I never have any issues on strip head as other Phillip head and they are reusable. I love it.

            Used these screws on a fence. two months later about 5% of the heads had snapped and the boards came off. Very cheap steel. I would never use the company's products again.

              Quality material. The screws are consistent and reliable. I have been using the Deck Mate screws for a while now. The screws are reliable. No problems with stripping out the head or snapping off the shank. With the star drive even the longer screws go in without a problem.
