With an Ipe Clip® hidden deck fastener (we recommend the Ipe Clip Extreme ), your deck surface can be free of nail or screw holes and it will also speed installation time. The bottom legs of the Ipe Clip ® fasteners preset the gap spacing between deck boards, giving a uniform gap spacing throughout the deck. The stainless steel screw is driven either straight through the fastener into the joist, or at a 45 degree angle through the fastener, through the deck board, and into the joist. The next board then slides onto the other half of the Ipe Clip ® fastener that is exposed.
