Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yavuz Everything seems fine
Contrary the other comments, i ordered 3 boxes of this clip and every box has 75 TC2 plastic clips and 15 TC1 locking clips as well as screws and bits. Would be better if the would have included 2-3 starting clips too which is difficult to supply. Company itself have been very helpful on the phone to send some extra lock clips as well as samples.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rumplestilskin Missing bit driver
Bought one box and contrary to the description, the driver bit was missing. Purchased a Dewalt T15 Torq bit from Lowes and installation was effortless. No stripped or broken screws.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete fits into place very well and helps with alignment of boards
the clips work nice once you have them in place however when using them on long boards they tend to slip out of place particularly when you are adding in the steel hold down clips.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BD999 TechWood T-Clip System does not provide the bit , and Bit is unavailable at the Home Depot
I bought 20 boxes of these fasteners to go with the 1,000 sq ft of decking that I bought at Home Depot on-line. The bit for these fasteners was not included in any of the 20 boxes. I went to Home Depot to purchase the Bit. Guess what? Home Depot does not carry the Bit. You cannot find it on-line either. I can't even find a description of the Bit on the TechWood Web Site. It looks nice decking, but how am i supposed to install it. I would be very careful ordering this stuff. Add a couple weeks to your project , in order to run down a Drill Bit.

As a professional carpenter I saw no way for this product to work without marring the expensive New Techwood deck boards. The shaft of the screw is right up against the boards with no clearance for the screw head which is bigger than the shaft. I used the Camo system sold by Home Depot which worked okay but it it takes 2 fasteners per joist instead of 1 hence more time. Best system I've used has been Timbertechs a little pricey however at about 1.00 per sq.ft. Menards sells a similar system and I think Lowes does as well that may be more cost effective than Timbertechs. Overall I was pleased with the deck from New techwood sold by Home Depot only. Delivery was prompt and a decent price , I found it was far and away better to deal with Newtechwoods reps. rather than Home Depots associates who have little knowledge about the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joe17 the product is similar to other fasteners available, but I like that the screw is preset in the clip to help speed install.
This is a good product, but is decking brand specific. The flange is wider than a jointer blade. The decking I was using required me to cut biscuit slots for installation. Other products I have used in the past have been the same thickness as the blade. In this case I had to cut two joints at each joist to accomodate the thickness of the flange.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elkbugle Easy to use and install.
The hidden clip fasteners are easy to use, make installing our deck easy and fast. My wife was impressed with the hidden fasteners, no more screw heads to watch out for. We followed other advise and used our drills on slow speed to avoid striping the heads.
