Building decks of man-made materials like Trex® or tropical hardwoods like Pau Lope® or Ipe? Use award-winning Eb-Ty hidden deck fasteners to hold down deck boards and you’ll see nary a screw or nail. Our Eb-Ty fasteners now include stainless steel screws with black painted heads, so the deck fastener is almost perfectly hidden!
Installation is easy – everything takes place on the top side. First, use a biscuit joiner to cut slots in each deck board where it crosses a joist. Then apply a thin bead of construction adhesive to the top of the joists. Next, drive a 7 x 2-1/4" long stainless steel trim head screw through the Eb-Ty clip and decking board and into the joist at a 45° angle (there isn’t any need to measure; the clips automatically set the angle). Eb-Ty’s unique design locks everything together like the tongue and groove of a hardwood floor.
Use #1 Square Driver bits: HHS-0120 #1 x 2" Ball Detent, HHS-0134 #1 x 3-1/2" Ball Detent, or a reduced shank driver such as HRS-0110 #1 x 1" Wire Detent or HRS-0120 #1 x 1-15/16" Ball Detent Driver.
