CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent product, some minor drawbacks The hidden fasteners worked well for the most part. Two drawbacks - when the planks are seated into the Tiger teeth there is only ~ 1/8" of space between the boards. May be an issue with seasonal changes. Other issue was the quality of the metal, while they worked the metal is soft enough that a few teeth needed to be fixed before sinking the board into them. TIP: Definitely stand on the planks that is partially attached while you attach the next one. Otherwise it creeps up. The instructions covered this but not very clearly. Also verify the Tiger product is for your type of decking (wood vs composite, etc) different products for different decking. October 8, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed I wanted to see NO SCREWS on my new deck. I found the Tiger Claw fastener to be a great disappointment. It was very hard to install, the screws difficult to put in, the screws stripped and actually broke off. I returned the 4 boxes that I bought and installed deck screws instead. Would not recommend this product. July 24, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea - lousy in the details I bought these clips with the idea to have a nice clean appearance on my new deck I was building in my back yard. The deck was to be custom cut to marry against the flagstone coping on a raised wall on my pool. Each board was to be custom fitted and cut to achieve this affect. I did my research and the Tiger Claws seemed like the proverbial "cat's meow." The deck is build from treated pine lumber due to the high water contact being around a pool. I even set the lumber on stickers to dry for a several months my covered porch with fans on it to dry the lumber out properly, while still aclimating it to the high humidy of our Southern Texas climate. I knew it would be important to minimize shrinkage and warpage for this work well. Come installation time, I set the first board and drove home that first row of clips and screwed them to the subframe. So far so good. Then came the application of the next board where you have to drive it onto the screwed down clips holding down the first board. This was the beginning of the frustration. Now remember, you are driving a wedge shaped piece of steel into a piece of wood. You set one end of the board and work your way down towards the other end. But, as you strike, the vibration makes the previous clips back off the wedge shape. Now you could, possibly, work from one end to the other setting the next set of clips in place as you go to hold it all down... maybe. Wouldn't work in my case for other details of the project. I was tenatious in my desire to not have the machine gun look, so I came up with a series of clamps by which I could hold the board in place as I went. Then the second potential problem reared it's ugly head; there is no good way to ensure the boards are held DOWN to the subframe as you go. If the board is standing off the frame when the Tiger Claws are set, that is where they hold them. This is especially true of the board that is subsequently driven onto the previously anchored clips. Again, I went to the effort of devising a clamping system by which I held the boards down to the frame as I was setting and anchoring them. Add all this up and each board took WAY too long to set, with a whole lot of effort and multiple personnel required to be helping (thanks to my better half and kids). My deck has been down a little over a year and I am pretty dissappointed with the end results. There is a squeak across the whole deck where the boards move against the Tiger Claws and they are not well anchored (flat) to the substrate despite my best efforts. I am assuming that the eventual warpage, regardless of the extreme precations I took to minimize it's possibilities, which will always occur in treated lumber as it dries out, has bent these "tabs" up away from the frame. I am really dissapointed with what is a very detailed project. My wordwork is beautiful. But now I am considering removing all the decking and going back with standard SS deck screws to reset the boards. Like I said, it is a GREAT idea, but tough on the details. May 13, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great fasteners We used them on our deck yesterday and they look great. It didn't take too long to do, once we got into the flow. We used pressure treated 5/4x6x8 green lumber and found that they didn't split and it went together well. The deck looks great. Even our neighbors all thought it looked good and thought hidden fasteners are the way to go. July 7, 2008
