Vistalux Corrugated ASB PVC Sheet Fixings Clear x mm Pack of 200
Shame about the screw quality
Excellent idea for fixing corrugated plastic roof sheets to framework. Prevents over-tightening and possibly cracking panels. Needs two of you to position and screw down these fixings which in many instances is done at a stretch. The head on the third screw supplied with this pack chewed and I had to use pliers to remove a part screwed down screw. The screw is soft steel and despite being pozi type is woefully inadequate for it's purpose. I used some 'Goldscrews' for the remainder and had no problems at all without the need to 'pilot'. The price of the 200 pack represents good value when compared to buying them in packs of 10. Sometimes the caps covering the screw heads are tricky to fasten down but that may be because it was a hot day when I was fitting them. Get some decent screws to go with the rest of the fixings and they would score 5 stars across the board.

I found the screws tops to be soft, the pozidrive cross wore out very quickley. I tried different screw drive ends but still the tops destroyed.
I will use the plastic sections of this kit with 4x60mm ultra screws and finish the job.

Just what you need
As a DIYer I need to avoid having to buy little packets of things at exhorbitant prices, or having to create accounts at specialist trade suppliers whose price structures are opaque.
Screwfix lets me do this, and this is a good example. 200 of this product here cost about the same as a couple of small packets from a high street DIY store. Well done screwfix!

Corrugated sheet fixings
Easy to fit and tighten to correct tension because of the support under the sheet.
