  • Use a 0-1800 RPM variable speed corded or 18V cordless non-impact drill. Install fastener in a continuous drive until head is slightly below flush.
  • Install two screws at every joist.
  • When fastening within 1 1/2" from the end of a board, follow the common practice of predrilling a pilot hole using a 1/8" bit. This will prevent the board from splitting.
  • Install screws no closer thaan 3/4" from edge of board.
  • Do not use TrapEase II when attaching composites over "fixed" surfaces: sleep systems, roof decks, solid wood surfaces (facia, handrails) or metal joists.
  • TrapEase Stainless Steel screws are recommended in these fixed surface conditions or when decking is being applied over restricted airspace (less than 12" of clearance below the joists on 3 sides).
  • For solid wood decking please use our GuardDog Exterior Wood Fastener.
