Trex Hideaway is the black, stainless steel fastener exclusively designed for the grooved Trex Brasilia(C) product line. Trex has partnered with Tiger Claw to develop a proprietary system that delivers a fast and easy installation process that allows for a clean, superior, fastener-free deck surface.
Trex Hideaway Hidden Fasteners are designed exclusively for use with Trex decking. The use of other hidden fastener systems with Trex grooved boards may damage the board or result in the boards not being adequately fastened to the joist system.
A Groove Cutter is available for use on non-grooved boards that allows for a groove to be routed that accommodates Trex Hideaway Hidden Fasteners. The Groove Cutter can be used on Trex Contours(R), Trex Origins(R), Trex Accents(R) and Trex Brasilia(R) deck boards.
