Ipe Clip®

Hidden Deck Fasteners allow for board expansion and shrinkage. Because only one side of the board is screwed down, the other side can "slide" back and forth without shifting the screws loose.

Installing with Ipe Clip® Hidden Fasteners

This our most recommended method of decking installation. By using hidden deck fasteners, you completely eliminate any visual flaws from face screwing and allow the natural beauty of the wood to shine through.

1.   We recommend using pregrooved deck boards, since this will greatly speed up installation. If you are using standard deck boards, you will need to groove them yourself.

2.   Insert an Ipe Clip® Hidden Deck Fastener into the groove.

3.   Drive a stainless steel screw through the fastener and into the joist at a 45° angle. You may have to predrill a pilot hole.

4.   Slide the next deck board into place, making sure to leave a 1/16" gap between boards.

For boards at the end of the deck where hidden fasteners won't work, we recommend using the face screw/wood plug method.
