B-CLP2 Softwood Deck Clip
is constructed of heavy gauge stainless steel with a black oxide coating making it suitable for harsh or coastal environments.
Metal deck clips
secure the 1-by-6 decking to pressure-treated girders, leaving the surface unmarred by nails; only an existing pineapple guava tree pokes through it.
The other news in materials is hidden fasteners -- deck clips
, metal brackets, and biscuit joiners--available at home improvement centers.
Lay this way up for reduced warping using two galvanised nails, screws or deck clips
at every joist.
