Customer Reviews

Cortex concealed Fastening System for Trex, Winchester Grey-DISCONTINUED is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Idea, Bad Design The screws are nice because they match the deck perfectly. Although, had I known I would have given them a pass. The head is way to small to handle the torque of a three inch screw. Leading to the screw head reaming it self out. When that happens you'll need to destroy the board to get the screw out (which is quite painful when decking with Azek). Cortex will not sell the plugs separately. I'm using a 5/32 pre-drilled hole while soaping the screws, that seemed to work as well, but I worrying about not having the correct compression on the deck boards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! Do not buy this product, let me count the ways: 1) the material the screw is made of strips practically instantly once it reaches resistence. I had to drill piolot holes for the screw to go all the way down. This product was suppose to save me time! 2) Can not remove screw since it strips so easily 3) the plugs do not always fit perfectly, even when the screw is put in properly. I had to take my dremel and sand down one's that were sticking up. Bottome line is if you want a hidden fastener system, go with the ones that screw into the joists and go into kerfed boards.
