Install the wood and composite decking you've always wanted for your outdoor living space regardless of its board profile with the Tiger Claw Slot Cutter. An ingenious way to keep your deck surface screw and blemish free by using the Tiger Claw Router Bit to cut the perfect side-groove to install the Tiger Claw Hidden Fastener system. Featuring carbide blades for long-term performance and lasting power, the Tiger Claw Slot Cutter attaches directly to your personal power drill routes out a portion of the decking directly above the deck frame joists to create an opening ideal for accepting the hidden fastening clips.

Choose to create the groove for 5/4 inch decking to use with the Tiger Claw TC-G Clips or a groove for 3/4 inch decking for use with the TC-120 Hidden Fastener system.

The Tiger Claw Slot Cutter is sold individually.
