How many CAMO Fasteners do I need for my deck?

Whether planning out a big deck renovation for the upcoming springtime or are in the midst of a fresh new DIY deck build; new composite decking, hardwood deck boards, or treated lumber can breathe new life into an outdoor living space!

For a hidden deck fastener of incomparable strength and seamless appearance for nearly any decking material, choose from the wide line of CAMO Fasteners.

CAMO hidden deck fasteners are approved for leading composite decking brands such as Trex, Deckorators, Fiberon, AZEK, and DuraLife; as well as standard ACQ-treated lumber, hardwood deck boards, and more!

How many CAMO clips do I need for my project?

The first step in determining how many CAMO fasteners are needed for your deck project is calculating the square footage of the deck space itself. The easiest way to do this is to multiply the length of your deck by the width of your deck. The total you find at the end is the total square footage of your deck.

Is your deck a non-standard rectangle? Divide your outdoor living space into easy-to-work with square and rectangular sections, multiply the lengths by the widths, and then add together to find the total square footage.

Strong and straightforward, CAMO Stainless Steel Deck Fasteners and CAMO ProTech-Coated Steel Fasteners are a brilliant option for installing deck boards
