Best way to attach down-spout brackets to Harditrim corner boards?

I need to reattach the downspouts to my Harditrim corner boards but was not happy with the way they were previously attached (short sheet metal screws). is the correct way to use a longer wood screw? Do I need a grommet or sealant at the penetration site?

back strap and 1 1/2'' galvanized or stainless hex head
there is not a great deal of weight on these,unless you have a clogged downspout
