Help your picture-frame deck look picturesque for years to come with Transition Clips from Mantis. Durable powder-coated steel will keep your deck boards in place while the side-installation guarantees a smooth, clear deck surface for toes and shovels alike. Whether installing new or making quick repairs, Transition Clips from Mantis means creating a beautiful outdoor space doesn't have to be difficult.

Mantis Transition Clips allow you to work with most grooved edge decking by offering 2 different groove heights:
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 Transition Clips include 25 Clips and 25 screws for a complete install in one.
Working with non-grooved decking material? That's no problem with the Router Bit by Mantis, perfect for creating the groove you want.
