Default Outboard Lower Unit Hex Screw Head (Oil Drain)

I heard about these replacement screws for the lower unit oil drain, which have a hex head, to eliminate the problem of stripping the slot head in traditional lower unit screws. Found them at Boaters World, but they only have them for the American brand engines. I need them for a Suzuki - does anyone know if they are made in metric threads that would fit a Zuk? Thanks.

You can always get the straight slot screws out easily with a hand impact.........strip out a hex (not hard to do) and your screwed. One tap with an impact gets the straight slots out.....
