Choose the Tiger Claw Pneumatic Gun to quickly install your deck fastening screws for a quick decking project

Tiger Claw Pneumatic Gun

One of the downfalls of hidden deck fasteners has been how long the installation process can take. Tiger Claw has changed that perception by creating a semi-automatic Pneumatic Gun that drives a screw into place as quickly as if it were a nail. Install decking up to 50 percent faster than screwing it down with a drill/driver.

Simply slip the Tiger Claw hidden deck fastener into the nose of the gun and position it in the groove of the board. The Tiger Claw pneumatic gun automatically enables perfect positioning of fastener and screw installation with the pull of a trigger.
