A CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System that provides peace of mind
It’s easy to use, affordable, secure, removable, flexible and even attractive too! The CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System is the first hidden deck fastening system which can be directly attached to the deck substructure of treated softwood, hardwood, cedar, composite or PVC deck boards.
The patented CAMO deck screws are hidden in the side of the board, creating a fastener-free deck surface. It secures either solid or grooved deck boards directly to the joist which helps to reduce board movement. Using Marksman tools, this system is easily put in place. The best part is, there’s virtually no need for pre-drilling! The screws back out easily when a board needs to be replaced too.
All CAMO deck screws are compatibly designed for use with CAMO Marksman tools and are supported by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. This guarantees against rust and corrosion during the lifespan of the project. They are ideal for marine construction projects too. These fasteners have been independently tested and have been proven to exceed Uplift Resistance industry, as well as Thermal Cycling industry standards within all solid and grooved wood, composite and PVC type boards.
Tips for when pre-drilling is needed
When using Stainless Steel CAMO Deck Screws with a hardwood decking such as IPE, Cumaru, Tigerwood, Ironwood or any other similar type of deck product, pre-drilling is recommended. Here are some tips to follow:
- Use a 3/16” drill bit chucked at 2-1/4” to 2-3/8” from the tip of the bit to the drill chuck
- Ensure that the Marksman tool is in the correct fastening position on the deck board and using it as a guide, pre-drill both sides.
- Leave the Marksman tool in place and insert CAMO Hidden Fasteners into the screw guides and fasten
- It is recommended that you fasten these to the joist a minimum of 1” from the board ends
