Are they indeed the incorrect screws for the purpose?
I looked at my boat shower door and noticed the door hinge is attached to the aluminum frame with oval screws. This looked strange as the oval head stuck out and would not allow the hinge to close flat, except for the fact that the hinge doesn't need to close flat. I also looked at the door stop opposite the hinge side and saw again small oval head screws that seemed to small for the counter sunk hole. See second picture.
I don't know if this means anything, they don't look right, but they've held up for almost 20 years.
I guess I would judge the quality of the unit more on the mis-aligned door than the screws used. But I do see Aggie Dad's point.
