Default name of screw on rain gutters

Hi All,


I need to order new screws that are on each end of the drip rails. But I am having a hard time finding them. What are they called or does someone have a part number?


Thank you,
Mike

I asked this question last year and Brent recommended a generic screw shank nail.

Thanks Alexiskai, I need the slotted screws at the end of the drip that holds the outer part on-sort of. The ones that go into the header and right behind the quarter window.

Those were the same ones I needed. I recall I did just end up using nails. I looked for short black nails with a relatively wide head so they would grab the drip rail. The hardest part was finding a way to hammer the nail in without also hammering the drip rail itself. Worked fine, happy with the result.

Here is a picture of what I think is the screw that Mike is looking for. It is a oval head wood screw about 3/4 or 1" long
