"These are very good screws , having to work from underneath worktops etc you need the screws to start and the bits not to slip, these deliver both."

Perfect for joist hangers
24 May 2014
By DIYisbetter
, Gloucester UK
"I found these ideal for fixing joist hangers in my garage loft (standard and underslung). Quicker, easier and quieter than using twist-nails, and leaving me the option to alter things easily in the future. Using a PZ2 screwdriver head after drilling pilot holes, there were no problems installing 600 screws in a very short time."

A good screw
13 Jan 2014
By Axminsterfurback
, Hounslow
"This is my standard screw for hanging medium to heavy pictures, mirrors etc, or for anything that a roundhead screw is suited to.
Used with Fischer SX #6 or #8 these screws are extremely reliable. However, you will need to have a newish Pozi #2 driver bit and make sure you drill pilot holes in timber otherwise the heads may cam out. I've got through 10s of boxes of these and never had a head snap off.
(Average rating given for features - category doesn't really apply to screws!)"

Picture on the box
16 Apr 2013
By Spurry
, Norfolk
"There seem to be some boxes of these screws available with label drawings that depict the contents as countersunk head screws but with the correct part number of 19936.
It is only the pictures that are wrong...not the contents.
Customer service 10/10 !!

Round head screws
20 Sep 2012

"In the toolshop we often need to renew the handles on garden spades, forks etc. We don't have the kit to renew the rivets as fitted in the original factory. These screws are the substitute most successfully used."

Check what's in the box
6 Aug 2014
By CJW51
, East Sussex
"Needed some roundhead screws for outside work so checked the reviews and went for these. The screws are absolutely fine, you need a good driver to send these in, preferably an unused bit. I probably should have drilled pilot holes first but although they took some pushing, I didn't get any snapped heads. The main problem, as noted by other reviewers, is that they are supplied in a box with a countersunk picture on the outside. I bought the box and thought nothing of it until I opened it and found --200 countersunk screws. I had to go back and change the box which again had a picture of countersunk screws. This time I opened it in store and found the correct roundhead screws inside. What a waste of time and petrol. You need to sort this out Screwfix."

"It would be best if the boxes for round head screws showed a silhouette of a round head on the lid. The ones I bought had a picture of a countersunk head. I took them back to the counter where they opened the boxes to prove the contents were indeed round heads."

Good screws silly packaging!
11 Aug 2013
By Marmaduke
, Southampton
"The screws are what you'd expect, do the job well with minimal problems.
For some strange reason the screws are packaged in the same boxes with the same labels as the counter sunk equivalents. No problem, except that's there's absolutely nothing on the outside of the box to indicate that they're not countersunk! The pictures on the outside of the box and on the label show countersunk screws not round head. I almost took them back when I looked at the box but opened it just to check!"

Not easy.
21 Jun 2014
By RealWeasel
, Telford
"Countersunk screws have plenty of metal into which to shape the Pozi recess. Raised heads don't. Driving these into even quite soft wood with new (good quality) bits was a real struggle. Compared to screws with a nice deep recess, which fit nicely onto the bit, they were horrid, taking extreme pressure to keep the bit engaged.
Not really the screw's fault, since an adequate recess would leave so little metal that the heads would snap off.
However, if you don't really really need raised head - really really don't use these.

Mystery Pricing
27 Jun 2012
By TimberFramer
, LIncolnshire
"I've used the full range of QuickSilver screws over many years without problems.
Generally very good value.
However, in this case it's a complete mystery to me why this 10x2" screw is 100% more than the 10x1/5"
Doesnt happen with the rest of the range when the size goes up a notch, so why on earth are these such a shocking price?
Good Screws, Bewildering Price.
