Kreg Hidden Fastener Deck Jig from Woodcraft

By: Allen Lyle

When installing a deck, hidden fasteners are the way to go, but they’re often only available for composite decking. Now, thanks to the Kreg Deck Jig, available from Woodcraft, unsightly screw or nail holes in a wood deck are a thing of the past.

Simply install the stop collar on the drill bit, position the Kreg Deck Jig against the deck board using the supplied spacers, and drill for a perfect wood to wood attachment every time. Watch this video to find out more.

    Looks like a great system. What if your deck boards run parallel to the front of your house. The issue is how do you fasten the board that is up against the side of your house? No problem using this on the side of the board facing away from your house, but there’s no room to use it on the side of the board closest to the house. Do you recommend using regular deck screws and driving them in vertically for that side? This defeats the purpose of the jig. Also, for the board furthest away from your house on the edge of the deck, what’s the maximum overhang you can have and still use this jig?

    Hi, Ed,

    There’s no reason why this hidden fastener deck jig would not work on an old balcony deck. The installation process would be the same as if you were working from wood boards being installed one by one.

    That said, each home is different, so without knowing the details about yours, we recommend visiting your local The Home Depot, explaining your home’s specifications and unique needs, and asking for tailored advice.

    Good luck with your project!

    Would this Jig work with a deck that’s already made. The balcony deck that I have has nails slowly creeping out of the wood. The balcony deck is about 10 years old. I’m just curious that this chick might secured a little better and those regular nails. Please advise.
