    I went to the hardware store to get a bit for my drill to remove some broken steps from my deck. They weren't able to ID this and told me it looked like a stripped phillips. I've since verified that isn't the case. Can anyone tell me what this is called?

    It's not a Robertson , looks like some kind of proprietary decking screw alternately it could be some sort of security screw

    Thanks for all of the replies. I checked into this square drive that newertoy mentioned but it looks more rectangular than a robertson but still not the same as this. Or am I looking at the wrong thing?

    Ya, I bought the house with the deck but I am fairly certain its circa 2003...

    I'm going with square-drive that has now been mangled to it's own propriety shape.
