Answer: 
When using CAMO to install 2x6 deck boards (1" - 1-1/2" board thickness), we recommend you use the 2-3/8" CAMO Hidden Deck Screws. The 1-7/8" CAMO Hidden Deck Screws should only be used when installing 5/4 deck boards (3/4" - 1" board thickness). For thicker deck boards, you will need the longer length screw.

PT deck board warp

How do these fasteners work with PT 5/4 in or 2 in X 6 in deck boards in climates where you have a drastic temp and humidity fluctuation? I have built decks using both dimensions of lumber and the 5/4 in tends top bow or cup in the center when it dries. The 2 in X 4 in did somewhat but very little but seemed to split and crack worse than the 5/4 in. We have heavy snow loads in winter and dry high desert summers with the occasional afternoon shower here in southern Colorado.

Answer: 
2 x 4 and 2 x 6 lumber is more stable than 5/4". In general, it will warp and cup less.
However, there are many factors to consider. Deck board performance can vary, not only because of the elements, but also because of the details of the structure built (air flow, substructure, sun and shade) and especially with the quality and treatment aspects of the PT.

2 x 4 and 2 x 6 lumber is more stable than 5/4". In general, it will warp and cup less.
However, there are many factors to consider. Deck board performance can vary, not only because of the elements, but also because of the details of the structure built (air flow, substructure, sun and shade) and especially with the quality and treatment aspects of the PT. There is great variance in performance because of different types of lumber, the amount of chemical treatment moisture still in the board and environmental extremes.
Although we cannot control the quality and condition of the boards installed, there are some things that will increase your chances of long term satisfaction with the end product. Here are some tips for using treated lumber for decking:
- Acclimate the treated lumber: Lay the boards out and allow them to dry before cutting and fastening in place. This will greatly help to stabilize the wood and reduce issues after installation.
- KD treated (Kiln Dried Lumber) is a better choice: The product is dried and made much more stable before delivery.
- Block your sub-structure at regular intervals to add stiffness and lessen twisting and warping movement below the deck.
- When using CAMO Hidden Fasteners, always stay at least 1" or more from board ends when fastening the deck board to the joist. Always scab in an extra joist below where you are joining two deck boards (butt joints). This will also allow you to stay at least 1" from board ends.
- Airflow: Make sure there is plenty of airflow…at least 12" from bottom of the substructure to the ground, open on all sides of the deck to allow ventilation below the deck. Material cupping and movement can be increased dramatically when conditions below the deck are humid and wet, while the deck surface dries quickly in the sun and wind.
- Temper Expectations: Over time treated lumber will crack, split, cup and twist. It's the nature of the product being used. No fastener will prevent much of what will naturally occur with a treated wood deck in any given environment and much will also depend on the maintenance care and treatment given to the deck over its lifetime.

Answer: 
I can say so far so good but to answer your question I would like to point out a few observations. The cupping can be greatly affected by first ensuring the boards are laid crown up when you look at the end grain. The second observation I have seen is the lumber seems to come with a very high moisture content. I used the PT OC2 lumber on my deck and the lumber has shrunk a full 1/4 to 3/8 in 2 months.

I can say so far so good but to answer your question I would like to point out a few observations. The cupping can be greatly affected by first ensuring the boards are laid crown up when you look at the end grain. The second observation I have seen is the lumber seems to come with a very high moisture content. I used the PT OC2 lumber on my deck and the lumber has shrunk a full 1/4 to 3/8 in 2 months. No fastener issues to date. The fasteners are easily replaced should the need arise. I did take a little extra care and framed the joist to support maintenance free lumber by using 12" OC joist and adding a second 2x around the perimeter. I then added extra fasteners around the perimeter. No cracks in lumber to date, no failures. Only observation is the gap has grown.
Best wishes on your project and I would like to check back next spring and compare note. I live in Minnesota and snow can be issue.

Thank you for your question! CAMO can be used to install your decking on a 45 degree angle. The performance of the screw will not change based on if your deck boards are installed in a standard layout compared to doing a 45 degree angle installation. You will still install a screw at every point the deck board intersects a joist and your screw will still have the same holding power as if you were to do a standard board installation. As long as you follow the recommended CAMO installation instructions (provided in every CAMO tool box) and best building practices, you shouldn’t have any issues with screw performance.
When using CAMO to install your deck boards at a 45 degree angle, you will need to start by positioning your Marksman Pro Tool over the edge of the high side of the joist so that the fastener remains completely in the joist when fully driven. You may find marking the deck board where it intersects the joist useful. To do this, draw a line where they intersect and position the Marksman Pro Tool so the middle of the Screw Guide rests over the line. Proceed to drive the screw into the deck board. Repeat this process down the length of the deck board on both edges. A video showing the process can be found on the CAMO Fasteners YouTube page. It will walk you through the process step by step.

Answer: 
It is not required that you pre-drill when using the CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System. However, we do recommend pre-drilling when using CAMO to install hardwood deck boards, particularly if you will be using 316 Stainless Steel CAMO Hidden Deck Screws.
If you decide to pre-drill, we recommend you follow the below steps:
1. Use a 3/16” drill bit chucked at 2-1/4” to 2-3/8” from the tip of the bit to the

It is not required that you pre-drill when using the CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System. However, we do recommend pre-drilling when using CAMO to install hardwood deck boards, particularly if you will be using 316 Stainless Steel CAMO Hidden Deck Screws.
If you decide to pre-drill, we recommend you follow the below steps:
1. 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 (find an illustration of this in the installation instructions of your CAMO Tool or on camofasteners.com).
2. Place your Marksman Tool in the correct fastening position on the deck board over the joist.
3. Using your Marksman Tool as a guide, pre-drill both sides of the deck board.
4. Leaving the Marksman Tool in place, insert CAMO Hidden Deck Screws into the Screws Guides of your tool and fasten.
Please remember, due to the density of hardwood decking products, it is recommended you fasten a minimum of 1” from board ends when fastening the boards to the joist.
You can use a standard 3/16” drill bit for pre-drilling, but be sure to switch your bit out for the CAMO Driver Bit when you are done pre-drilling and will begin to drive the screws into the deck board. The CAMO Driver Bit comes free in each pail of CAMO Hidden Deck Screws. It may be more convenient to use two drills for this process; one set up to do the pre-drilling and the other set up for installing the CAMO Hidden Deck Screws.
Pre-drill Instructions are provided in all CAMO Marksman Tool Installation Instructions or can be found on camofasteners.com. There is also an Installation video on the CAMO Fasteners YouTube page titled "CAMO Hidden Fasteners - Hardwood" that will walk you through key points to remember when using CAMO to install hardwoods. The video also shows the best way to pre-drill hardwoods when using CAMO.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent system for capped cellular PVC We used this on a high quality capped cellular PVC decking for 2 large decks (12x40 and 12x30) and some stairs. The Camo tool makes it very easy to install, both guiding the screws and spacing the deck boards. The decks are 4 years old and we have had no problems at all. Although you can see where the screws are in the edges of the deck boards, they are NOT noticeable at all - you really have to be looking for them. We would not hesitate to use this system again. We took care not to abuse the tools, and they are still in good condition after pretty heavy use. We got two tools because it was easier to space the deck boards and have more than one person screwing them in. June 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not for use with undried wood Very easy to use and the guide is great for creating the spacing you need between boards. However BE WARNED the screws and the angle they go in do not have alot of strength or "sucking in" power. If you are like most people and get fresh wood delivered and use this system then as the wood dries it will all twist and buckle and some of these screws will break but mostly the boards will just twist right off of them. You will need to let your wood dry for a few weeks on all sides if you insist on using this system. If not use regular T25 style decking screws. I had to remove all these screws and returned everything to Home Depot for a refund. Very good idea but not suitable at all for fresh wood and the manufacturer should document this on their product page. It will look great the first week but give it a month and you will be sorry. Either let your wood fully dry or go with another system. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camo Hidden Deck Fastener System Works exactly as described. I love the clean look of the deck surface; screws go into the edge of the board and are virtually invisible. Only been a few weeks, so the verdict is still out on the long term ability to keep boards firmly attached without any warning. More time consuming than conventional nails/screws, but worth the effort. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good system may take longer then using a nail gun but far better. Screws hold better and they are hidden. No visible fasterers May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Very easy to use and the 1/16 inch spacing worked well for pressure treated lumber. I installed my decking at a 45 to the joists so I could only do one screw before having to move tool but it still didn't take me very long. I knocked it out in a day. It looks great and I'll never install another deck without it. It has only been in for a few weeks but So far so good. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have for building a deck As a novice to building things, this handy tool was absolutely perfect. Its brilliant design puts the screws in on an angle on the side of the deck boards. The look of the deck is amazing without screw heads, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New deck ordered these to install a 700 square ft deck on our new home. They are a little labor intensive and pricy, but really look nice. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome This system is awesome. I just built my first deck, and this system was extremely easy to use and provided a professional looking finish to it. The built in spacers make it a breeze to ensure your spacing between boards is exact and you keep them square as you move across your deck. The only down side is there are some spots its tougher to use such as up against a wall or the house, or around posts/columns etc where you can't fit the tool down properly. However, you can remove the end jig from the tool to get screws into tight spots by itself. I also put a few in on an angle, getting them started with the tool, then finishing them with just the drill which helped a lot as well. Would recommend this product whether its your first deck or your 10th. June 30, 2015
