Its a screw. It does the job it was intended for.
They are screws, they are stainless and the are flathead, so I gave three stars. But if you want to use them on an aircraft for fairings... then get the structural screws with 100 degree angle. These are 82 degrees and do not match your countersink. They do not sit flush, and the rounded instead of sharp shoulders make them look even worse. Not worth the savings.
