  2. No Rusting: Coating process ensures rust resistance that will last for the life of the project.
  3. Increased Productivity: Eliminates tool jams - no down time.
  4. Less Reloading: With 50 screws collated per strip, you can install approximately 15 sq ft of decking before reloading.
  5. Great Finished Look: TrapEase 3 provides a clean finish without predrilling in Trex Transcend, Trex Select and AZEK PVC decking.

TrapEase 3 AutoFeed Composite Deck Screws can be used on other synthetic deck boards, but pre-drilling may be required in order to achieve the desired finished look. Test a piece of your deck material to ensure satisfactory appearance first.

TrapEase 3 AutoFeed Composite Deck Screws are designed for Trex Transcend, Trex Select and AZEK solid PVC decking without predrilling. It is important to note that extreme air temperature during installation can affect finished look and may require predrilling. 

Note: We suggest that you always test TrapEase 3 AutoFeed Screws in a piece of your decking material at ambient temperature to ensure satisfactory appearance. 

PREDRILLING IS REQUIRED WHEN: *

  • Installation within 1" of an edge or end of board
  • Installation at butt seams. Common practice dictates that an additional joist is sistered at each butt seam connection.

* In these cases, use a 3/16" drill bit to pilot a hole through the deck board (not the framing). Install a few TrapEase 3 screws to check for appearance before continuing. If you experience any issues, stop installation and call FastenMaster technical support.

Lifetime Warranty

TrapEase 3 AutoFeed Composite Deck Screws are guaranteed for the life of the project. If you are ever dissatisfied with fastener performance, please contact FastenMaster for a full reimbursement.

Note: The color is designed to be an acceptable match to deck boards offered by leading board manufacturers. It is recommended to try a fastener on a loose board to check color match before applying to final product.
