LINX Wood Pergolas

Assemble a pergola in as little as an hour!

Also from our friends at Wild Hog, LINX Wood Pergola Kits come with all the hardware and engineered structural posts you need to assemble a free-standing pergola no time: Just slide STIX timbers into LINX connectors and anchors and secure with a hand drill. The hollow posts are light, extremely strong, and ideal for concealing lighting wiring while the high-grade steel hardware is galvanized, primed and powder coated for lasting beauty and durability.

 LINX 8x8 Wood Pergola Kit

If you’d rather use your own lumber, you can still use LINX Pergola Hardware to bring your projects together fast. Or lean into the flexibility of this system to design a completely custom pergola using the LINX and STIX components to bring any design to life.

Coming soon: Watch for our new LINX Pergola Planner Tool in 2023!

Key-Link Chesapeake Series Railing

No more wobbly cocktail rail adapter systems!

Chesapeake Series Railing is the perfect choice for those who love to entertain friends and family on their deck. Designed specifically for a deck board top rail, this railing gives guests a flat, wide surface to rest plates and drinks, as well as a comfortable place to lean while taking in the view. Customize the look with a coordinating top rail to match the decking or choose a board in a complementary or contrasting color for visual interest. Your top rail board locks down tightly with no risk of rocking.

Prediction: Chesapeake railings are going to be the hot railing style!

Deckorators Contemporary Railings

A style for today's tastes... with a timeless appeal!

Deckorators Contemporary Railings feature a sleek, modern design with a beautiful powder-coated finish that resists scratches and corrosion. Choose from a rectangular rail profile with square balusters in preassembled, welded aluminum panels or combine the contemporary railing and posts with a cable infill for a clean look that highlights the view.

A little something extra that makes a big impact!

Another new addition from our friends at Deckorators is their line of Lattice Panels. Create a cozy feeling in outdoor seating areas, between neighboring homes, or add as a skirting for the finishing touch on your deck projects.

Prediction: Lattice will become a popular privacy screen option.

Color Guard Grand Prix Railings feature a slim profile with contoured aluminum top rails and round balusters in a flat, hammered finish to bump up your curb appeal on the porch or complement any backyard deck.

STINGER Tools & Fasteners

Proven performance and the best practice for securing underlayment!

STINGER StaplePac and NailPac capped fasteners help seal out moisture that can penetrate sidewall and roofing fabrics and material. They also provide more holding power than nails or staples alone. The result: Reduced blow-offs and lateral slippage, plus fewer fasteners needed to get the job done.

To install your capped nails or staples quickly and easily, reach for the STINGER CN100B Cap Nailer or STINGER CS150B Cap Stapler, lightweight, compact tools with 200-cap / 200 fastener capacities that reduce arm fatigue.

FastenMaster TrussBRACE

Say goodbye to removing temporary braces before sheathing!

Permanently set, space, and brace in one easy step with FastenMaster TrussBRACE. This truss support delivers lateral and diagonal restraint in one application while also increasing safety: They’re easily installed by walking along the bottom chords of the truss.

Prediction: You will not miss crawling through trusses.
