Can these be used with Veranda brand grooved composite?

Answer

I have no idea if it will work with the Veranda brand grooved composite. These hidden T-clip fasteners are designed for Composite Decking by NewTech Wood so no guarantee.

How do you install the T-1 fasteners

Asked by TERRY September 28, 2019

Answers

It's easiest to lay out all the planks before fastening them. The fasteners fit into 2 adjacent grooved edges and you can select as many fasteners as you have joists and slide them into position from one end. I used a couple of wedges to muscle the boards as close to each other as the fastenersJWW will permit.

How easy to use a mini Clips to install NewTechwood and how it look like ?

Asked by RN November 7, 2018
2
Answers

This innovation is a marvelous method to install the NewTechWood product. The T Clip simply fits in the groove on the side of each board. Once you have the board lined up in position , you simply use your driver to lightly screw the clip into the joist. One the next board is in position with the clips , go back to the prior board and firmly screw the clip in to finish. The T Clips are below the surface of the finished board, no holes to finish or seal, only visible when looking between the boards at the joist, nearly hidden. I'd include a picture, but we had our first snow this year, and the deck is covered.

how many spacer are needed for each board?

Asked by RayC October 31, 2018
5
Answers

One spacer on each joist. So your count will depend first on whether or not your framing is 16 inches on center or 12 inches (the latter spacing is recommended for steps) and then on the square footage of your project.. Put another way, it's not so much the length of your boards, but how many joists, including sisters, you have to traverse, and then how many times you have to repeat that (remembering these boards are 5.5 inches wide and the space between them, when using T-clips, is about 3/8 of an inch).

Worked well and look great. These screws are small so they go between the board gaps so they are slightly fragile and prone to stripping. Be careful and seat your bit right and anyone used to working with screws and carpentry should have only a few go bad.
by Hankster
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.

Difficult to use. Top edges shound be tapered for universal fit. It would also tap in to boards easier. I reshaped some and they worked much better.
