"Out Of Sight" Deck Brackets
You can keep nails and screws out of sight on decks and stairways with the new Deckmaster« fastening system.
Deckmaster was designed by professional deck builder Wesson Leavens, who wanted to give his customers a fastening system that enhanced the look and life of the deck. Leavens felt that screwing or nailing through the top of the deck boards was unsightly, and allowed the wood to crack, warp, split, and rot.
His brackets fasten to the top edges of the deck joists, allowing deck boards to be secured with screws from the bottom rather than from the top.
Deckmaster brackets are easily installed on joists by alternating from side to side of the joist. Since the screws go into decking at a 60-degree angle rather than straight into the wood, alternating the brackets keeps tension on the boards equal on both sides, holding them firmly in place.
Deckmaster brackets can be used to make steps and also to install vertical boards where there are multiple deck levels.
Deckmaster brackets are available in galvanized or stainless steel and are sold in packs of 10 or 100, complete with all necessary screws. Galvanized brackets sell for $27.99 for 10, or $251 for 100 when purchased from the company's Website. Stainless steel brackets are $49.99 for 10, or $451 for 100.
