install laminate countertop

I installed my own cabinets they have plastic on each corner with a whole. I am guess this is where you put the screw to attach the countertop? What screws should I use? Can I use drywall screws? Any precautions I should be aware of and recommendations before securing it down. Thank you.. This is for a laminate countertop

Do not use drywall screws. They make large head screws with special threads to hold in the partical board for this job.
Just make sure there not to long or they will poke through the top.
