6 Best Hidden Deck Fasteners

Decking can be installed with a lot more than just nails and screws these days. Hidden fasteners secure the deck boards from beneath the surface, creating a clean look that’s as smooth as hardwood flooring. Hidden fasteners can be used with composite, vinyl, cedar, ipe or just about any other decking material. Because they’re just as strong as screws but provide a much nicer finish, hidden fastening systems are a superior product to traditional decking installation methods. The cost is slightly more than most screws, however, depending on the hidden deck fastener you buy, can be faster and easier to install, so you’ll save money on installation.

Ever wonder what those grooves on the sides of a deck board are for? That grooved edge is for use with a hidden fastening system. Because their so popular, just about every decking manufacturer makes their decking with both solid and grooved edge. You can also router the edges of solid deck boards yourself to create a slot that accepts hidden deck fasteners. This comes in handy when working with real wood since they don’t come with pre-cut grooves.

It’s important to note that grooved boards don’t have a standard groove size. You should verify with the manufacturer that the hidden fasteners you want to use are compatible with your choice of decking boards before ordering. Most hidden deck fasteners are compatible with the major decking brands like Trex, Timbertech or Azek. The benefit of grooving your own boards however is that you can make the groove however you like. If you take your time the added labor can result in a tighter fit.

Here are descriptions of the most popular hidden fastener systems with comments, tips and reviews.

Camo Installation Guide

Installing the Hidden Deck Fastening system by Camo is a simple, easy to learn process. Simply follow the step by step instructions shown in the pics below.

Cortex hidden deck fastener system screws and plugs

Step 1

Install the first board by screwing and countersinking directly into the face of the deck board and into the joist; glue a decking plug in the hole.

You won’t be able to use the Marksmen Pro to secure the first board, which is against the house, because there isn’t enough room for the jig to fit.

camo hidden deck fasteners marksman pro x1 tool

Step 2

Simply squeeze the handle and move the Camo Marksmen into position. Slide the metal clamps into the gaps between deck boards. Position the jig over the joist and release the handle. Once released the clamps grab the deck board, holding the jig in place. Make sure to press the jig down hard against the deck board. If it isn’t pressed down firmly the screws won’t go in at the correct angle or depth.

Positioning the jig correctly also makes sure deck boards are evenly spaced.

Step 3

Load screws into the slots at each end of the Camo Marksmen.

Once both screws are installed squeeze the handle and release the clamp.

Move the Camo Marksmen to the next joist and repeat the process starting from step 2.

Positioning the jig correctly also makes sure deck boards are evenly spaced.
