“We built an AZEK deck in our backyard with CAMO Hidden Fasteners. We installed the deck
ourselves; I am 73 and my wife, Mary, is 64. We knew it wouldn’t have come out looking so great
with any other kind of fastener. CAMO Hidden Fasteners are such a terrific product! We want it
to get all the publicity possible.”

Tips & Tricks: Installing CAMO Hidden Fasteners
on a 45° Angle

Due to a high volume of questions regarding installing deckboards on a 45 degree angle using CAMO Hidden
Fasteners, we decided to repeat this section of Tips & Tricks from a past issue!

A 45° angle deck is a great design technique that can give your deck an upscale
look-especially when installed using the CAMO Hidden Deck Fastening System. To install
deckboards at a 45° angle using CAMO, follow these simple steps:

  1. Position your Marksman™ tool over the high side of the edge of the joist rather
    than the center (IMG A). This way the fastener will penetrate fully into the joist when
    completely driven.
  2. Mark the deck boards where it intersects with the joist (IMG B).
  3. Position the CAMO tool by centering the screw guide directly over the mark and drive
    your CAMO fastener at that point.
  4. Reposition the tool to fasten the opposite side of the deckboard. Continue the process
    down the length of the deckboard (IMG C).
