    Question Deck fasteners

    I saw Tom use deck screws on an episode of ATOH, but I cannot find them anywhere. The screws had round heads and the heads were hollowed so they cut into the decking without producing the irritating splinters that pop up when conventional screws are driven into the boards. Does anyone have information about these fasteners?

    was it a wood deck or composite, he may have been using trim head deck screws

    I think it was composite material. He mentioned that the screws would also work for wood. Do these screws have heads that sort of cut into the material and sit flush with decking? I have searched various home center web sites, but it seems that no one carries these screws. Any idea on where to find them?
