Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerry Excellent product with TREX decking
Hidden deck fastners were easy to use and resulted in secure deck boards without any visible screws on the surface.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robbie I will use these again
I normally post about a product response shortly after I have used it but waited 18 months to see how this product actually performed. I did not use the customary pregrooved decking due to the extra cost. I used the basic Trex decking being as though I own a biscuit cutter, retired, and had the extra time to make the biscuit cuts. My project did not require a Trex oven for curves so I can't comment on them in a curved architecture environment but I would not expect them to perform any differently.
I give the product ✮✮✮✮✮ for ease of use, deck spacing, finished look, and durability.
If you are buying the pregrooved decking you will find your install is a breeze and the finished look to your project very appealing upon completion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Trex look a like hidden fasteners - a good alternative
These hidden fasteners were purchased - mostly because I had become tired of paying for original Trex fasteners at twice the price. The shape of the fasteners is a bit different from Trex - but they both space the boards at the proper 1/4" inch. Also the screws are a bit longer with the non-Trex screws. This meant a bit more torque on the driver.
The screws look identical (except for length) - so I'm hoping they will hold as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kclay They work just fine!
Each fastner has its own stainless steel screw. The screws are a number one (#1) square tip. SS screws are soft so care must be used when driving them. The box comes with two square bits.
I use a electric driver/drill to set the screws. I use the drill's torque brake to set the screws. 2/3 of the fasteners set with the torque brake okay however some screws bottom out in the fastner. Just be obsevent when setting the screws.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deckbuilder Good quality fastener at a very reasonable price
The fasteners worked well and were easy to use. They came with extra screws and drivers. You have to be sure to seat the driver in the screw head well or you can spin out and destroy the head. A very few of the screws had too much paint and so did not seat well. Once the head is destroyed you can not drive the screw in or out. The instructions for the first board did not relate to this fastener.

This is a great product giving good results for a beautiful
finished look for your deck.
However your order on line system is the pitts!!! I tried
several times to place an order for this product on line and
all I could get is the product page with a small black square
with a circle moving in the center. Why does it take so long?? I am giving up. Your online order system is not user

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Love the look of no screws
I used these with a grooved composite and they are so simple and make the deck look awesome. They are easier and faster than running two screws per board in every joist. It only takes one screw to hold down one side of two boards because of the pinching action it does.
