Building the deck of your dreams has never been easier thanks to the Mantis Clip Hidden Deck Clip system with Collated NailScrews. No more rising deck nails catching bare feet or shovels, just a cost-effective fastening system that is completely concealed and installs incredibly fast via the Eliminator Pneumatic Screw Gun. Mantis Deck Clips automatically space deck boards 3/16 of an inch apart for a consistent look and beautiful appearance throughout your outdoor project.

Crafted from solid powder-coated steel or stainless steel (for coastal applications), Mantis Clips with Collated NailScrews elevate your deck boards off the joist surface to reduce rot and load stress while installing quickly with just the press of a button.

Mantis Clips work with virtually grooved edge decking by offering 4 different groove heights:
Mantis 345 is designed for boards with a 0.353 inch groove height
Mantis 385 is designed for boards with a 0.380 inch groove height
Mantis 396 is designed for boards with a 0.406 inch groove height
Mantis for Trex is designed for boards with a 0.396 inch groove height

Packs of Mantis Clips with Ballistic NailScrews include 90 Mantis Clips, 5 Starter Clips, 5 Finish Clips, and 100 collated nailscrews to cover approximately 50 square feet.

Mantis Clip with Ballistic Nail Screw bulk packs include 450 Mantis Clips and 500 ballistic nail screws to cover approximately 250 square feet.

Working with non-grooved decking material? That's no problem with the Router Bit by Mantis, perfect for creating the groove you want.
