Snap-LOC Clip for TREX® Transcend Decking
USA PATENT – 10577807 AUSTRALIAN PATENT PENDING
The KlevaKlip Snap-Loc clip for Trex® decking is approved for use with Trex ® registered trademark boards in Australia.
Whilst Trex® decking has for quite some time had a groove in the side of the board to allow a “biscuit-type” fixing to be used to hold down the boards, biscuit clips tend to be quite fiddly due to having to fit the “biscuit” into the groove in the board and the drive a very small headed screw in between the boards. It is a two-part process as the screws cannot be fully tightened until the following board is laid. Moving from joist to joist fitting and tightening clips is certainly no slower than conventional screwing down of a decking board, but it is tedious, hot work. There must be a better way……..
