I hadn't previously bothered to zoom the photo, but your comment made me take a closer look, and you're right - every one of those screws is sunk 4-5mm below the surface :frenetico:

I suppose if you're only doing private work that regs/specs are probably irrelevant to you. A lot of us will be doing work where doing things the correct way is essential.
