TC-G Grooved Board Hidden Fastener

Tiger Claw Hidden Deck Fasteners

The Tiger Claw TC-G clip system is the fastest, easiest way to hide fasteners on grooved decking. It has been specifically designed to work decking that is pre-grooved or grooved with the TC-150 slot cutter. The TC-G is made of 304 grade stainless steel and is approved for use in saltwater applications and ACQ or chemically treated timber for long-term performance. The clip's sharp prongs embed into the upper portion of the groove for strong holding power. The stainless steel screw ensures a lasting connection between decking board and joist.

  • Available in a hand driven or pneumatic gun installation method.
  • Spacer tabs on the clip automatically gap the decking 5mm for a consistent look.
  • The TC-G reduces wood splitting, wood rot, and board cupping and comes complete with a 25 year warranty.
  • Use with our Tiger Claw Pneumatic Installation Gun for fastest possible installation
  • For a completely fastener-free surface, use with our Cortex System for stairs, first, last and perimeter boards
