Customer Questions & Answers

Are camo screws good

I head that the screws are not withstanding the shrinking and expansion of the wood. Is it true they split during the weather change?
Asked by: Rakesh
The camo screws work as advertised. They drill the pulp out of the wood and do not split the wood at all.

Use on 2X6 PT Lumber

What type and length screw is recommended for use with this tool on 2X6 Pressure Treated lumber ?
Asked by: Ron1
When installing 2x6 decking with CAMO Hidden Deck Screws, we recommend using the 2-3/8" length screws due to the thickness of the deck board. The 2-3/8" screws should be used when installing any deck board that is 1" - 1-1/2" thick. Thank you for viewing this CAMO product.

How do the "starter screws" work with this tool?

Asked by: Baltimore1000
The Marksman Pro Tool should only be used with CAMO Hidden Deck Screws. The "starter screws" are not designed for use with the tool. However, you can still use "starter screws" on the first few deck boards to get the deck started, and then use the Marksman Pro Tool to install the rest of your deck. When starting your deck, you have a couple options for installing the first few boards: 1.) Face fasten the first board, or board and a half with the starter screws. 2.) Avoid face fastening by using "L" brackets to fasten the starter boards from below the deck to the joists. 3.) Lay the first board against the structure and mark the location of each joist on the board. Pull the board away and set the Marksman Tool over each mark and pre-start each screw about 1/2" into the board. Then, back out the screw and remove the tool. Do this the entire length of the deck board (only on one side of the deck board) until screws have been started at each joist mark. Once complete, reposition the board against the structure with the pre-started holes on the outside edge (not against the structure). Re-drive the CAMO deck screws into the board. Finish the board by face fastening the inside edge. Thank you for viewing this CAMO product.

Backing screws out

Does this system make it any easier or harder to remove a board if it needs replacement?
Asked by: Jay
CAMO Edge Deck Fasteners can back out easily in the even a board needs to be replaced. With other hidden deck fastening system, such as clips, if a deck board needs to be replaced the board may need to be cut out in order to remove it. In other instances, the user may need to remove every board on the deck up to the damaged board in order to fix that particular board. This is not the case with the CAMO Edge Deck Fastening System! In the event you need to replace a board, simply put your drill into reverse and back the CAMO Deck Screws out of the deck board, allowing easy removal of the damaged board. Place your new deck board into position and follow your standard CAMO installation steps of SET, LOAD, DRIVE: 1. SET your CAMO Tool over the deck board 2. LOAD your CAMO Deck Screws into the screw guides of your CAMO Tool 3. DRIVE the screws into your deck board Following these steps will allow for quick and easy deck board replacement using the CAMO Edge Deck Fastening System.

Marksman Pro Tool is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66.

Expecting the wood to twist and warp I had my planer and sander out to smooth things back out after 2 years. I had to pull several screws so I could flip or replace some of the worst boards and the Camo screws worked flawlessly. Even going back into the same joist hole hasn't affected the grip of the screw. Even with my cheap top deck wood choice I am extremely pleased with the Camo Pro ease of use, durability, and effectiveness. I've since used it to make plant table tops and a few other "Honey-do" projects with great results. I'm sad that he longer length screws for 2x material are no longer carried at my local stores though...means I have to plan ahead for those kinds of projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomness Takes Time The final product from using this tool is simply amazing. No screws or nails to worry about catching your feet on and it looks beautiful. I mean BEAUTIFUL! If you watch the video about how easy it is to remove a board in the middle and wonder if it really is that easy - YES it is. TIP: go slow when removing screws. It made a huge difference for me. What they don't tell you… you are either going to break your back and knees if you work from the deck surface OR you will have to keep stepping over/under the framework. Finally, It's painfully slow and for the most part, a one person job once the screwing begins. I used standard pressure treated wood which, as wood does, had a few bends to it. This meant occasionally needing a second pair of hands to help with getting the gap just right. TIP : At the end I had my wife loading the screws into the tool at every joyce while I repositioned. As far as the tool quality goes - I had zero issues with it. I cleared it out a couple times but that really wasn't needed. The bits lasted forever, I used 2 for a 300sq. ft. deck. Would I use this tool again? you bet. I wouldn't build another deck without this tool or something just like it. If you are on the fence about getting this, just do it. you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product - As advertised I used the marksman pro to install a 20x12 deck using the veranda PVC boards from the HD. Using the tool took a lot of time but it was worth it. The screw system works well with the PVC. You just need to spend the time to make sure that the tool is aligned properly for spacing and position. Depending on the deck setup you may need to face-screw near the edges. In my situation the board along the house is the only board that has any screws showing on the top surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! Highly recommended! This made deck installation extremely easy and it looks fantastic! I recommend buying two so you can put them at either end of the deck board to get the spacing right. You want to figure out where the board is bowing so you can drill in there first, then strategically place the camo so you can push the board straight and drill it in. It's much easier if you have at least two people, ideal if you have four (two people working on either end of the board, one person drills and the other pushes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool You get exactly what is being advertised. I finished my deck with this over the summer and I couldn't be happier with the results. I used composite decking (Veranda from HD). They say its not necessary to pre drill the holes but I did anyway. It was a little difficult to get the screws all the way in without per drilling. This became obvious right away so it wasn't an issue. Cheaper and easier than using fasteners. See pitch for deck finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as advertised This product works great!! Easy to use, no complications. A real time saver, not to mention my deck looks like boards are perfectly laid with 1/4 in gaps between. No screws showing. There was no need to read instructions. I just picked it up and started using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camouflage The tool worked great. My only complaint is that it gave too wide a space between boards. Worked around it and deck looks great. Start the screw, remove tool, close gap as desired, tighten down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product but you should know this This is a good product that my son & I used to install about 600 sq. ft. of redwood decking. There are 2 things to be aware of. If your deck is against a house wall, you can not use this for the first two rows because (like hardwood floor installation with nailer) the drill does not have enough room to maneuver on the wall side. So you need to used some L brackets. Not a super big deal. The second thing to be aware of is where two adjoining boards share the same joist. I would suggest that you don't share the joist and just add some scrap 2" x to this joist and start your next decking board on the spliced piece. The reason for this is the tolerance for putting 4 screws on the one joist is not great. The screws are a small diameter. I hope they stand the test of time.
