The New SMART-BIT by Headcote makes pre-drilling and counter-sinking a breeze. This system works great with composites, hardwoods or any type of wood. The specially designed, replaceable powerbolic drill bits feature special fluting to cut through decking more than twice as fast as standard wood bits and the anti-clog debris cavity will assure no delays. Other features include pre-set countersink and shaft length, as well as no-mark rubber ring to keep your deck boards looking pristine.

The SMART-BIT comes in three standard sizes that are great for decking; #7 Trim, #8 Trim and #10 Flat - and two larger sizes with longer bits, great for boardwalks and timber applications; #12 Flat and #14 Flat. The SMART-BIT tool package contains one (1) complete tool, two (2) extra replacement bits and one (1) hex wrench.

Composite Decks & Boardwalks - Works great with plastic wood composite as well as purely plastic decking materials. Even where the material does not require pre-drilling, use the smart-bit to avoid mushrooming.
Hardwoods - Species such as ipe and mahogany are extremely hard and pre-drilling is highly recommended.
Decks using Hidden Clip Systems - Use the SMART-BIT system to secure the first and last deck boards, as well as the fascia and steps, where hidden fasteners cannot be used.
Avoid Splitting - Pre-drilling with the SMART-BIT at the end of each board will help avoid splitting.
Avoid Splintering - Regardless of the type of wood decking used, some splintering around the screw head will naturally occur if holes are not pre-drilled and countersunk.
General Woodworking - Although originally designed for deck building, SMART-BIT has also become popular for installing cabinets and other general woodworking applications.

Starborn Industries has been offering idea-driven deck screws and fasteners since 1961. Their Headcote line was the first to feature color-coated stainless steel fasteners designed specifically to match popular shades of composite, wood, and PVC deck boards. Their proprietary products are in wide demand across the United States and throughout the world.


Starborn was one of the first companies to recognize that decks are an expression of individual style and that the quality of a deck fastener is vital for stability, finish, and longevity. In addition to their Headcote line, their innovative Smart-Bit and Pro Plug products are available. Smart-Bit is the first pre-drilling and countersinking tool designed to matched specific fasteners. The Pro Plug system enables builders and woodworkers to keep hardware out of sight while maintaining the benefits of traditional face-down fastening.
