looking to remove the screws that hold the diamond plate down to the floor with flush mounted screws. Does anyone know what the screw size is the most trailers come with? I got this info from McMaster Carr.




Tamper-Resistant Pan and Flat Head



Flat Head


The pin-in-torx drive makes these screws difficult to remove without the proper tools. All are fully threaded.
Flat head screws are beveled under the head, so they provide a flush surface within countersunk holes. Maximum recommended material thickness is 0.100" for 8-18 screws, 0.110" for 10-16 screws with a #2 drill point, and 0.175" for 10-16 screws with a #3 drill point. Length is measured from the top of the head.
Tamper-Resistant Torx L Keys and Drivers and Tamper-Resistant Torx Bits are also available.

If your trailer's screws aren't tamper resistant, regular Torx bits will work. Check out Lowe's and Home Depot and you will see that they offer HD drywall screws with Torx heads in addition to the regular screws that have Phillips heads. Your trailer's screws could be something that simple in design.

Trailer builders use "clutch head screws" they look like torx, but actually use a square bit. Probably a # 2...hope this helps.

1/4 coarse that use a 30 torx bit is what most use, if you can stay away from tamperproof torx screws [bits break too easy] be better. They come in many different sizes and lengths tho!
