Different screw head

Hi, I ran across a screw head, part sq head, straight blade , and possibly a Phillips, find them a lot on electrical panels

Let me guess, that is a Cuttler Hammer BR (Eaton) panel. I see them all the time. They are the Bard of screws. Jack of all screws, master of none.

Those types of screws have been around a long time, I've seen them on quite a few things not just electrical. As noted above having a screw head that is one or the other works better than this hybrid.

Hi, I have found them on GE as well as CH , they donít work well with Phillips head, In general they ****. I heard somewhere they were developed by Milwaukee.

They are soft, crap screws....get a big flat head so you don't mangle it.
