Product Overview

The EB-TY provides a unique method of fastening deck boards that makes the fasteners virtually invisible. Fastening is done into the side of the board, leaving a fastener-free deck surface. The EB-TY is a polypropylene biscuit fastener that fits into a slot the builder cuts into the edge of the deck boards with a standard biscuit joiner. The EB-TY fasteners are inserted and fastened with a screw driven into the joist. Nesting each successive board against the EB-TY automatically ensures consistent spacing and uniform height.

  • Easy to install since all fastening is done from the top side
  • Affords easier deck resurfacing since nail heads are eliminated from the deck surface
  • Formed from long lasting polypropylene to last the life of the deck
  • Decking material: IPE, redwood, cedar or PVC
  • Deck thickness: 1 in. or more
  • Spacing requirement: 3/32 in.
  • Package size: 175
  • Stainless steel #7 trim-head screws included

What about rot? Do you have to caulk the fastners to prevent water from getting into the slits and causing rot?

I referred to one of our engineers regarding your inquiry and the following is the information he provided: We do not recommend caulking slots made to install the EB-TY connector. This is because deck boards are in a wet service environment.

I referred to one of our engineers regarding your inquiry and the following is the information he provided: We do not recommend caulking slots made to install the EB-TY connector. This is because deck boards are in a wet service environment. Water moves through the deck board thickness so the moisture content of the wood in the vicinity of the slot is affected by the environment above the deck and below the deck. Also, the treatment envelope for a treated wood deck board is deep enough that the EB-TY slot depth probably does not penetrate deeper than the chemical. Caulking the EB-TY installation will not affect the decay potential. Thank you! Read Less

Answer: 
We have not pursued Azek recognition for the EB-TY product because Azek offers their own proprietary hidden clip. Please be sure to check with Azek and confirm that alternate clips will not harm the warranty if you decide to use the EB-TY. Also, because we have not done an analysis of the Azek products, we cannot be certain about the spacing required for the Azek board, however, their installation guide Read More

Also, because we have not done an analysis of the Azek products, we cannot be certain about the spacing required for the Azek board, however, their installation guide suggests 1/8" to 1/4" between boards when face screwing. This indicates that the EB004 (175-EB TYS) may not be adequate because it does not provide sufficient spacing (3/32"). Thank you! Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good but not great These hidden deck fasteners worked for my new cedar deck, but there is room for improvement. Using a biscuit cutter did not work. The resulting deck was too uneven. I ended up ripping a groove in the wood. After that, the assembly was consistent and the boards fit much better. The other problem is that the fasteners are plastic. When the screws are installed the plastic tends to bend making it hard to install the next board. I ended up making a quick jig that was the same height as the groove. I slid the jig under the fastener before screwing it down. This kept the plastic from torquing. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simpson fasteners hold it down! The precision of the invisible deck fasteners proved a professional result. My client was delighted. June 16, 2015
