Description

Details

Enjoy the beauty of your natural redwood, cedar, or pressure treated decking and create a gorgeous outdoor living space with the FastenMaster Tiger Claw TC-2 Softwood Deck Fastener. Made from Grade 304 stainless steel and approved for use in saltwater and coastal applications as well as being ACQ approved, the Tiger Claw TC-2S deck clips reduce wood splitting, rot, and board cupping. The TC-2 hidden deck fastener drives flush to the decking, allowing your fresh deck boards the ability to dry and shrink naturally, creating a natural board spacing over time. Build a sturdy, long-lasting deck with a blemish-free surface with the Tiger Claw TC-2 Hidden Deck Fastener, supported by a 25-year warranty.

Recommended for use in softwood lumber measuring 1 inch or thicker. Compatible decking material includes Atlantic White Cedar, Cedar, Coast Fir, Douglas Fir, Eastern Spruce, Eastern White Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, Southern Yellow Pine, Pressure Treated Lumber, Western Red Cedar, Western Redwood, Yellow Cedar.

FAQ: What is the difference between the FastenMaster Tiger Claw TC-1 and the TC-2?
The Tiger Claw TC1 and Tiger Claw TC2S hidden fastener systems are both designed to attach softwood decking, they look the same. The Tiger Claw TC-1 is made from heavy gauge hardened carbon steel with a black oxide sealer topcoat. The Tiger Claw TC2S is made from stainless steel with a black oxide sealer topcoat. Because the Tiger Claw TC2S is made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel, guaranteeing to never rust for the life of your deck, while the Tiger Claw TC-1 clips do not offer this same guarantee.

The Tiger Claw TC-2 Hidden Deck Fastener system is sold in a box of 90 to cover approximately 50 square feet and a pail of 900 to cover approximately 500 square feet.
The 90 pack includes the fasteners, stainless steel installation screws, installation block, and driver bit; the 900 pail includes the fasteners, stainless steel installation screws, installation blocks, driver bit, and instructional DVD.
