plywood fasteners

just bought treated 3/4 plywood for deck on trailer and couldn't find any fasteners that matched what came off of it. What was on it was self taping/self drilling 1/4in screws with flat heads, phillips. What are you using to hold the deck on. Thanks.

Those are actually a metal screw which is why you are not finding them with the wood fasteners.

I did find some with the metal screws but they had hex heads, I also went to a place that just sells fasteners, and he didn't have any in stock or to order. He said he had what was called a flooring screw, but the head was half the size of the ones that were in the trailer.
