BlackTalon® Universal Deck Fasteners
BlackTalon® is our unique hidden deck fastening system made from stainless steel. These deck clips increase construction efficiency, minimize the need for repair, and extend the deck’s lifespan over decks with screw-down or other fastening systems. Two innovative BlackTalon® deck clips are available: a standard clip with legs that straddle a two-inch joist and an angled clip to accommodate deck boards that are not perpendicular to the joist or joists that are wider than two inches.
These hidden deck fasteners work by fastening the screw through the clip into the joist—not through the edge of the deck board. The ‘wings’ of the clip apply even pressure to both sides and hold the board extremely tight to the joist. Memory inherent in the stainless-steel, along with the innovative wing design, allows these deck clips to flex with the joist system and wood movement. This flexibility and design is critical in maintaining continuous holding power and providing access to the screw to replace or tighten deck boards.
BlackTalon® Universal Deck Fasteners will work with any profiled deck board.
