"Depending on the wood and humidity range, they may fail when used in the in-out manner you describe. "

I would say, depending on how tight you pull them down they may work fine in this application or, not. When installing they should be snug, not mashed into the wood.

PS I have used this kind of fasteners for decades without problem. I am well into my second box of 100, plus I have made a few spiffy ones from brass bar stock.
