Help identifying screw

Does anyone know what type of screw this is? I went to Home Depot and Lowes and they didn't have anything with a phillips head that's also hexagonal. I tried searching online but I have no idea what it's called.

It's a small lag bolt with a phillips head drive as well. Not sure that I could come up with a name....but...

Why do you need both a Phillips and hex drive capability on the same screw? It's obvious somebody makes them but it is not common because it increases cost compared to a single drive screw.

Hardware like that is often sold as part of "kits". If you buy a play set or bunk bed you might have a screw like that in the hardware kit. Nobody really stocks or uses hardware like that as you found in the hardware isle at your home centers. It's just a convenience feature the manufacturer included in their hardware packet. If you need another one I'd buy a traditional hex head lag screw but it won't have the Philips on the head.

Maybe we can offer help with the mounting. Post a picture for us if you'd like help.

The only place I could store vertically I hit metal. I had no idea what it was so decided not to put it there. I actually made one out of PVC and did a different type of mount (to store vertically). I guess I'll try to find another use for the mount. It was $50 though!
