Product Overview

The CAMO Edge Deck Fastening System works on most treated lumber, hardwood, cedar, composite or PVC deckboard. CAMO Edge Fasteners, a CAMO Marksman tool and CAMO Driver Bits combine to deliver a fastener-free deck surface at a price that makes getting the job easy and installing the deck even easier. The CAMO Edge Deck Fastening System is engineered to work exclusively together. Using other branded tools, fasteners or bits will impair performance and won't produce the desired results.
  • For use with most nominal 2 in. x 6 in. (1-1/2 in. x 5-1/4 in. to 5-3/4 in.) solid or grooved deckboard
  • Protech coated 1500-hour salt spray
  • Covers approximately 500 sq. ft. deck
  • 2-free driver bits included
  • Reverse rake tip removes deck material as it bores, allowing the screw to penetrate the board without splitting
  • Star drive offers more points of contact for better performance and reduces bit slippage and wear
  • An aggressive lower thread pattern provides superior holding power while the reverse upper thread pulls the board tight to the joist and provides a clean, finished entry
  • Unique trim head design provides a less visible point of entry

What is the difference between Protech Coated, 305 Stainless Steel Painted, & 316 Stainless Steel...

Asked by dyoungprod November 6, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for your CAMO question, The main difference between those coatings is the degree of corrosion resistance. ProTech coated is great for most decking and can be used in most all non-coastal areas. It features a 1500hr salt spray and a 4 part coating that should handle changing seasons for years to come. Stainless steel will be the superior coating when it comes to corrosion resistance. It is a "must" for installing decking near coastal areas, especially where salt water is present. The type of stainless steel (305 & 316) refers to how it is made and the chemical makeup. 316 stainless steel is rated higher for coastal areas. Another unique feature of stainless steel is that it will make fasteners slightly less rigid, which will help with the expansion and contraction you will see in some artificial deck boards, especially those made of materials like PVC. Last, stainless steel greatly reduces the chance of a tannin reaction between the decking material and the fastener. Thank you for viewing this CAMO product! -Team CAMO

The 1-7/8 screws are out of stock. Can I use this length instead for Composite decking 1 inch thick?

Asked by newdeckguy September 22, 2020

Yes. I used the 2-3/8 screws on my 1" PVC decking.

Can the 2 3/8 screws be used with 2x10 deck boards?

I’m willing to bet yes. You may need a different tool than the camo pro tool to use.

Is the recommended method for attaching boards where the Marksman tool cannot be used, like next ...

Asked by Buckley October 9, 2018

Answers

Yes. A simple hammer to start them is all that is needed. No drilling required. Will need a 90 degree driver (I used the dewalt 90 degree.. it's great) adaptor to get any screw in at an angle when close to siding etc. Great question. The tips of the screws are not pointy, not sure why.

Has anyone used these for Azek decking?

Answers

Thank you for your question about this CAMO product. Yes! The CAMO Edge Deck Fastening System can be used to install Azek decking. The CAMO system was designed to work with treated lumber, hardwood, cedar, composite or PVC deck boards. We do recommend if you are using CAMO to install Azek decking, that you use the CAMO Marksman Pro Tool (model #0345001). This tool features a 3/16" gap which is needed when installing synthetic decking. Thank you for viewing this CAMO product! -Team CAMO

Is the Camo 1 7/8 inch screw long enough for 2x6 decking?

Asked by Topo June 16, 2016

Answers

No. Go with 2 3/8.

are these screws long enough to fasten a 2x6 if i use the camo tool with these screws

Asked by bigAZ May 26, 2016

Answers

Yes. However I also found myself using 3 or 3.5 inch deck screws (every now and then) also to persuade stubborn boards that where squirrelly etc. Also get a flat bar crow bar and scrap wood to help keep boards straight as you attach. My whole surface deck was put together w 2x6 which I installed myself. Very pleased with end result. It does take longer than just zipping screws through top of boards, but it's totally worth it. Very clean look.

time to install vs traditional nonhidden screws?

Why base on time rather than quality and appearance?!?!

A great product to install with the Camo Pro Deck Tool, this allows you to fasten the deck board on the sides to the deck. Saves time on the installation of the deck boards and a better way to secure the boards to the deck. This will eliminate the deck rot due to the water going through the screws on the flat side of the board. With this T-15 Trimhead Deck Screw( Protech Coated), no splitting of the wood and a small hole on each side of the boards on each joist.This has been installed for about a month and will have years of service. Thanks for a great product.

Bought these screws with the Camo deck jig to replace my deck floor. I used 2x6 cedar tone pressure treated lumber and had no problems with the screws not going through. It is time consuming compared to using a nail gun to fasten the deck boards to the joist but I really like the smooth look and don't have to worry about the nails popping up. The Camo deck jig works great. Bought this over the Kreg so I didn't have to drill the screw hole and then fasten the screw.

I really like the screws but I also bought the Camo alignment tool and I didn't like it at all. I could not get it to work right. I did buy a Kreg ($79.95) alignment tool and it worked great. I just adjusted the drill bit to go down as far as the head would go in and did not use the tool to install the screw. Works Great!!!!

Highly recommend this for a great finished/wow factor deck, but there are some significant gotcha...
Highly recommend this for a great finished/wow factor deck, but there are some significant gotchas you must consider first. Pros: 1. Extraordinary finished looking deck, puts a smile on your face, especially if you are OCD 2. X1 Tool automatically spaces boards (in my case 1/16") for pressure treated 2x6 3. X1 Tool can withstand light/medium hammering (on the metal jigs for stubborn placement areas) 4. Marksman Pro-X1 Tool easy to use 5. Screws are handy to use for attaching other things, like hand rails from the bottom and won't make a big/noticable hole 6. Due to the smaller size, you can attach the ends of a board to the supporting joist without worry of splitting Gotcha's 1. Time consuming, probably 3 times slower than bang-bang-bang deck screws straight line through the top.. BUT Camo hidden screws was worth it in my opinion.. FYI 3 man weekend warrior crew took us 2.5 days to plank the deck and picture frame (18x26ft deck using 16ft length 2x6 PT lumber) 2. Required tool is indeed nice, however not much use for it beyond deck building 3. ****Screws are NOT pointed, tips are flat chisel shape and are difficult to use without the tool 4. There are spots where the X1 tool won't fit such as last board against the house, 2x6 that just won't cooperate, etc.******* 4. ATTENTION CAMO ENGINEERS, there is NO reason to have the screws not be pointed. My only thought is they did this on purpose to force the use of the X1 tool. Pretty shady. A few taps with a hammer and you are in business, but as seen in #1 of my Gotcha points it slows the finishing process down considerably. 4. Thin gauge... great for tacking down boards, however, if a board needs to be pried/talked to/straightened or stepped on before screwing down you will need to use beefier #9 star drive deck screws (recommend 3 or 3.5" inch) for boards that need to be persuaded into position. #9 screws work just fine depending on your level of OCD. I am pretty OCD and using the occasional #9 T25 deck screw toe'd in from the side did not affect me. FYI #9 screws won't work with the X1. 5. Screws are a T15 star/torx bit so not a real standard size 6. Screw heads could be a few thousands bigger to help get more downward pressure and resist board humping/movements 7. Due to the small head size, I used 4 screws (2 on each side) on the end of a board to ensure curling does not occur. This used more screws. 8. 1750 screws was JUST barely adequate for a 18x26 ft deck... not including handrail attachment, so I need to get more 9. If you mess up... and yes you WILL mess up, getting the screw back out is difficult sometimes Tips 1. GET A GARDENERS KNEE PAD or some sort of knee protection 2. Grab about 6-10 tubes of Loctite PL-3x construction adhesive, you will thank me later 3. When in doubt, use a #9 T25 deck screw instead for insurance 4. GRAB a 90 degree dewalt adaptor (DEWALT DWARA100 Right Angle Attachment), critical for the back edge of the last board against the house, and a zillion other uses such as the last step on a stair stringer (attaching screws from bottom) 5. GRAB a Dewalt 20v XR Driver - best thing you will ever buy 6. Grab a bunch of dewalt quick chuck bits, T25, T20, phillips #2 etc 7. Grab 2 boxes of #9 T25 screws, 3" and 3.5" 8. If you use 6x6 posts you may want to seriously consider getting a Dewalt 12" compound miter saw ($600)... you have been warned :) 9. Doing this deck took every tool I own to complete this project and then some, and I own ALOT of tools. I hope this review has been helpful to you.

These make for a beautiful seamless installation. Get more than one instalation tool so one man can cut and two can install. Angled instalations benefit from picture frame border to prevent difficulty at edges. Instalation takes twice as long as traditional methods but the result is astonishingly clean.

Heck of a deal
I feel this was a heck of a deal. I opened the outside box and there was a ton of screws in the box. It was like they threw in extra screws in the box. The product seems to be a real good product. Maybe wish I would have bought a 3" long screw knowing that I used 2"x6" boards instead of the 5/4 deck boards for my deck. They were sufficient, but would have been nice to have a bit more screw in the joist.

My new Favorite Deck Connection Method
I just did my first install with the Camo product and it is a winner. I have used various hidden fastener systems before and this was very easy, consistent and no stripped screws. Faster than the Kreg system since there is not pre drill. The deck I installed was soft wood (Alaskan Yellow Cedar) so I would probably need to pre drill if it was hard wood decking. I recently installed 2 decks with hidden fasteners for composite decking and this was a lot easier and cleaner looking in the end. I will have do do some experiments with the leftover composite but for soft wood this is a great solution.
