Hidden Deck Fasteners & Wood Decking

Natural wood decking is subject to expansion and contraction in the width of the boards as a result of seasonal changes in humidity in your individual location.

We designed the ExoDek QuickClip hidden deck fastener specifically to allow for this natural swelling and shrinkage in the widths of individual boards after installation.

Typical deck boards can swell up to 3/16” in width. The ExoDek QuickClip hidden decking fastener will compress to absorb this expansion. When the wood later dries out, the hidden fastener spring clip will move the boards back into place, centered perfectly, and securely fastened to the joist below.

Grooved Decking Boards - Required Patterns

Our deck clips are designed for typical 5/4x4 and 5/4x6 grooved deck boards with 3/16" height grooves located at the mid point of the thickness or height of the board. With typical 1" net thickness boards, the lower edge of the groove is located at 13/32" or approximately 0.40" when measured from the bottom of the board. Our clips require a minimum groove height of 1/8" but the location of the groove off the bottom of the board must be milled precisely at 0.40" +/- .01" from the bottom. When using our deck clip with 1x4 or 1x6 boards, the groove will be offset in height and therefore, only one face will be usable during installation. The recommended groove depth is 1/2" with a minimum depth of 7/16".

We do not recommend using 1x6 with hidden fasteners. 1x6 boards are inherently less stable than other typical sizes of decking. 5/4x4 is the most stable board and is our standard recommendation for the most versatile board that can handle a wider variety of installation conditions.
