These high-quality decking screws are ideal for use with the Kreg Deck Jig??? or as a general fastener for a wide variety of deck projects.

Whether you're building a new deck or refinishing an old one, you want to do the job right. With the Kreg® Deck Jig™ and a few simple tools you already own, you can create a beautiful and functional deck surface that is completely free of exposed fasteners and painful splinters. Traditional concealed-decking systems utilize awkward steel fasteners or thin plastic clips to hold your deck boards in place. The Kreg® Deck Jig™ utilizes a more straightforward approach, creating an incredibly strong wood-to-wood bond through precisely-placed self-tapping screws. Securing a deck board with the Kreg® Deck Jig™ takes three simple steps. First, you drill holes into the edge of your deck board using the specialized stepped bit, guided by the jig's hardened-steel drill guides. Next, drive the specialized self-tapping deck screws through the same drill guides and into the joist as the depth collar precisely controls the depth. That's it, you're done. Works great with native softwoods such as redwood and cedar, along with certain tropical hardwoods like ipe, red Balau and ironwood. Kreg® deck screws were designed specifically for use with the Kreg® Deck Jig™, although they can also be used as simple face-screws for a variety of outdoor projects. All Kreg® deck screws feature a KTX #1 square drive to reduce cam-out, a flat-bottom head that helps prevent splitting and a self-tapping tip that drills its own hole as it's driven. Kreg® stainless screws provide the excellent protection against corrosion in the long-term.
