Editor's Review: Fasteners for Grooved Decking

review date: March 10, 2011

The Wadsworth Company’s deck clips aren’t widely known, but their Quick-Fire system is unique. The small, stainless-steel-capped plastic fasteners are collated into strips and are loaded with stainless-steel screws to simplify fastener handling. Rather than reaching into your pouch for each fastener or juggling several in hand, you can hold a string of 13 Wadsworths ready for mounting.

To use, you align the strip of fasteners with the grooved deck board, drive the screw in the last fastener straight down into the joist, then pull to snap off the remaining clip strip. It takes several tries to develop the knack for snapping off the end clip and not a clip farther down the string.

There are three models: The QF100 and QFP100 are sized for 1-in.-thick decking and register 3/16-in. spacing; the only difference is that the stainless-steel cap plate on the QFP100 has downturned corners to grip the board groove tightly. The QF75 has a shorter T-leg for 3/4-in.-thick decking.
