Comparing Trailer Horse Pad Screws and Self-Taping Screws for Horse Trailer Side Pads

Question:

Do I want to use the #8 trailer pad screw with the sharp point or the #8 self tapping screw with the different style point?

Expert Reply:

The Trailer Horse Pad Screw part # PS-8 will work great for attaching Horse Trailer Side Pads like part # HTP60BK. That said, you may need to drill a small pilot hole into the backing first depending on the material. I suppose you could use a standard self-tapping screw like part # 1131832 as well but there is no built-in washer on these and you risk stripping the hole much easier this way as well.
