The CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System works on any treated lumber, hardwood, cedar, composite or PVC deckboard. CAMO Hidden Fasteners, a CAMO Marksman tool, and CAMO Driver Bits combine to deliver a fastener-free deck surface at a price that makes getting the job easy and installing the deck even easier. The CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System is engineered to work exclusively together. Using other branded tools, fasteners or bits will impair performance and not produce the desired results.

  • CAMO deckpac includes everything you need for a 250 sq. ft. deck: 875 1-7/8 in. protech coated trimhead hidden fasteners, 1 CAMO marksman pro-X1 tool and 2 CAMO driver bits
  • Marksman pro-X1 provides automatic 1/16 in. spacing on the front spacer and the rear spacer
  • Provides a narrower gap that is ideal for installing wood deckboards
  • Fits any 5-1/4 in. to 5-3/4 in. deckboard
  • Patent-pending CAMO marksman pro-x1 positions CAMO hidden fasteners for side-angle entry to the deckboard to create a fastener-free deck surface
  • Protech coated - 1500 hour salt spray
  • Dual screw guides fasten both sides of the board with single tool placement
  • A unique trimhead design provides a less visible point of entry
  • A reverse rake tip removes deck material as it bores, allowing the screw to penetrate the board without splitting
  • An aggressive lower thread pattern provides superior holding power while the reverse upper thread pulls the board tight to the joist and provides a clean, finished entry

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. No Read More

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.

Answer: 
The CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System can be used with most grooved edge decking. If you are using CAMO to install a grooved deck board, you need to purchase the CAMO Grooved Board Driver Bit (#0345089). This bit is different than the standard CAMO Driver Bit. The Grooved Board Driver Bit has a higher shoulder which allows for deeper penetration into the groove of the board. You can tell the difference Read More

One of the reviews said the Deckpac deck screws snapped after six months. Has that happened before?

Answer: 
Jack, I have read the same, so far I have not had the issue. I can tell you I did check one screw to see how brittle it really was and it performed well. I just finished the 512 sq foot deck and had several boards that took alot of un-warping. I did double tap those that took excessive force, The tool worked very well and I did go through 4 driver bits.
I cant say for sure for until a Minnesota winter

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
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 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 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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One cool tool Using this on a 512 sq ft install. It looks like a consistent 1 1/8 inch of screw into joist, and the look is outstanding. The preset 3/16 gap is very consistent. I am very happy with it. Used other hidden fasteners and this is way easier. Certainly better than driving screws through the top of the board. Overall would rate it a 5, just initial concern is the longivity of the clamping system. Best addition to the tool box in a while. July 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk I installed over 1000 sq ft of decking using the camo deck screws and used the camo marksman pro tool. After been installed for less than one month the screws started snapping in half. Now most of my decking is loose and needs to be removed and a proper fastener system used. I have tried to contact the company that makes them but they will not return phone calls or emails. Don't waste your money like I did. January 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CAMO kit is Excellent! Perfect hidden fastener kit for PT or Cedar Just used this for the first time on PT decking, i normally install composite decking. It worked incredibly well! I didnt have a single issue and the quality of the CAMO double sided handle tool is excellent, should last me for a long time. I would recommend only using a regular drill/screwgun because it seemed like if i used a impact driver i would have stripped out a lot of screw heads or eat up the 2 T-15 bits that come with it. Excellent kit and will certainly be using this on any more PT or cedar decking jobs I do in te future. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deck Fastening System Used this tool and screw to replace 300 sf of old 5/4 pine decking. Tool is well constructed and works well. Use an electric drill instead of battery on for more power. I initially felt the 1/7/8 inch screw were a little short but the deck board are securely fastened so all is ok. November 11, 2014
