Timbadeck Countersunk Stainless Steel Decking Screws 4.5 x 75mm Pack of 100
I bought these because I wanted to fix fence panels to posts and be able to remove them easily when I need to move large objects in or out of the garden.
I pre drilled holes in the panels only, not the posts. They pulled into the posts easily, grip the panels well and are made of a material that was hard enough not to burr when my screw driver slipped. They do seem harder than the average screw, which is good for me, as I need to unscrew then re-screw from time to time.

These decking screws are bad,
I brought 200 and only managed to use about 30% of them as they kept bending, snapping and rounding off.
Did not say on description about drilling first,
Only noticed it after reading the reviews

Quite simply these screws are not up to the job. Initial impressions looked good and they do at least start well, but very soon into the drive most simply start to deform and bend. I gave these to my builder for our new hardwood decking and despite pre-drilling all holes, within 10 minutes he'd given up using these as they'd either bent halfway in or sheared off. I thought he might have been exaggerating the problem until I tested them for putting up some softwood fence panels and even in this undemanding situation they were failing in a similar manner. I'll be taking these back for a refund.
