Kreg Deck Jig
|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, 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 straight forward approach, creating an incredibly strong wood-to-wood bond through precisely placed self-tapping screws.
Standard Deck vs. Kreg Deck
Drill. Drive. Done!
Securing a deck board with the Kreg Deck Jig takes only 3 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, you 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! You've just created an incredibly strong and sturdy joint with no visible fastener.
Works with a wide variety of decking materials.
For the best results, we recommend composite deck boards which prevent shrinking/swelling/splitting. Select a solid composite material with no machined grooves. Also works great with native softwoods such as Redwood and Cedar, along with certain Tropical Hardwoods like Ipe, Red Balau, and Ironwood. Works exclusively with 4/4 to 5/4 (3/4" to 1-1/8") stock. Not designed for use with 2x material including 2x4's, 2x6s, 2x8s, etc.
