IT IS A GREAT ITEM FOR REPLACING DECKING. QUICK EASY TO INSTALL. IT IS VERY WELL MADE. I DO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DO NOT WANT SCREWS SHOWING IN YOUR NEW DECK.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mike I would second guess buying these fasteners very time consuming to use they do not go in good at all .
I personally didn't like these clips they do not go in easy at all about 75% you have to tap in and this not my first deck so I do know what i am doing. It makes for a very slow install a couple years ago I did my front deck same boards just different fasteners they worked much better they where all plastic I wish I can remember the name but I cant .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP Fasteners for Veranda decking
I have installed different brands of composite decking and I must say that I prefer this type of clip to other brands. It is made of metal with teeth that actually grab into the material and pulls it down tight to the joists.
When installing deck boards to joists, make sure the joists are even. Take your time and use a level to find high spots. Then plane to make them level. I found it easy to install 20 foot decking myself once the joists were even.

Really enjoyed using these fasteners - they made the deck look great, were easy to use and actaully helped in aligning the boards. Expected the automatic spacing (which is great) but was pleasantly surprised that when you tighten down the fastener it will push the board just a bit which really helped sometimes when it was just a bit out of alignement. Had plenty of butt fasteners left over (using mostly 16ft Veranda composite boards) however there are no problems using these in place of the regular fasteners so no big deal. Agree with the other posts that a smaller qty. $25-$30 box would be helpful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dudethatbuiltadeck End result is nice, screws are cheap
These fasteners give a clean and finish look to the deck. The spacing is a little wider than I expected (about 1/4"), but doesn't look bad at all.
My only gripe is with the screws. They seem cheap and strip extremely easily- one wrong move with the driver and that's a wrap for the screw. I do not recommend using the bit provided in the kit...purchase a long #1 square bit that allows you to easily maneuver between the boards, and screw straight. The bit provided is too short and forces you to screw at an angle as you get closed to the joist, making it easy to strip the screws heads.
Overall, not bad. Price tag is a bit high given the quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oldenough Good quality, butt...
The number of fasteners is now up to the indicated 100 (with at least 100 screws and a small square driver bit) but the number of butt fasteners is only 6 (versus the 10 indicated on the box). I used several boxes and all had only 6 butt fasteners. Good quality, easy to install otherwise.

@ $50.00 a box there are too many useless J pieces - sell the different type of fasteners separate! If I could have found an alternative I would have used that.
