Great Item, saved the day. I was installing chicken wire to use as a gutter guard to keep the leaves from clogging the super gutter. see picture below. This had a wide enough head to grab it, make it's own hole and finally keep the chicken wire from coming up.
I just had to figure out how I can do this, and did it.
Been struggling with the best way to screw some thin ply to some square tubing for an art project. After walking the fastener aisle, these caught my eye so I gave them a try. The ply is 5mm thick & the 1" steel square tubing has a .065 wall thickness. Though these would screw thru the steel, I chose to drill a small pilot hole which allowed them to drive in faster, easier & cleaner. I removed & installed the wood several times to see if I could strip the hole out (to simulate assembly/disassembly of this project. The holes held up well. I only wish these were a #2 Square Drive.

Drill point is adequate for thin sheet metal. It is not adequate to attach anything to 1/4" structural steel. Simply would not drill. Even in a predrilled hole the head of the screw would snap off. Enlarging the predrilled hole to size roughly equal to the screw diameter was necessary before the screw would penetrate the structural steel. I'm 75 yrs old using a Ryobi cordless drill. I shouldn't be able to snap off a screw.
The Zinc-Plated Steel Truss-Head Phillips Drill-Point Lath Screws provide secure metal to metal fastening and strong holding power without the need to pre-drill. It can be installed with a standard screw gun and a #2 Phillips-drive bit or screw driver. It can also be used on wood, and looks beautiful and has secure fastening with strong holding power.
This self tapping screws are Zinc plated and works very well.
