Composite Decking Black Stainless Steel Starter Clips
Our Black Stainless Steel starter clips for Composite Decking are the recommended and most effective way to fix composite decking boards down at each end of the board. Installed clips remain hidden below the deck surface between boards, leaving a clean and unmarked surface. Even with other cheap composite decking brands, these clips ensure that boards can be lifted at a later date without damaging the surface. Both clips and screws are made of stainless steel, ensuring they will not rust or degrade over time, unlike cheap plastic clips that often need replacing regularly.
Using composite decking starter clips is a simple and effective way to secure the first board of a composite deck to the framing. You would first insert the clips into the grooves on the edges of the first board. Then you would use a drill driver bit suitable for the screw head and screw the clips into the framing. This method of securing the first board allows for a clean and seamless look as the clips are hidden below the surface of the decking and does not require pre-drilling.
Once the first board is secured, you can easily snap the remaining boards into place and secure them with T-clips. This is a strong and durable method for installing composite decking.
Using our starter clips and T-clips is easy. We recommend using a log narrow Philips or PZ2 drill driver bit suitable for the screw head for easy installation. Starter clips come in packs of 10, while Board fixing T-clips come in packs of 50.
Each starter clip or T-clip comes with 1 x stainless steel screw.
