Whether you’re building a new deck or refinishing an old one, you want to do the job right. With the Kreg Deck Jig™ – and a few simple tools you already own – you can create a beautiful and functional deck surface, completely free of exposed fasteners and painful splinters! Traditional concealed-decking systems utilize awkward steel fasteners or thin plastic clips to hold your deck boards in place. The Kreg Deck Jig™ utilizes a more straight forward approach, creating an incredibly strong wood-to-wood bondthrough precisely placed self-tapping screws.



Standard Deck vs. Kreg Deck

Get the deck you want, without any unsightly exposed nails or screws. The Deck Jig’s specialized self tapping screws are driven at a precise angle into the edge of your deck boards so they stay hidden from view. Where seasonal changes might force traditional fasteners out of place with time, Kreg screws stay protected safely below the surface, for a longer-lasting deck. By coupling the Kreg Deck Jig™ with composite decking, you’ll get a deck free of cracks, splinters, and “pop-out” fasteners.
























Drill. Drive. Done!

Securing a deck board with the Kreg Deck Jig™ takes only 3 simple steps. First you drill holes into the edge of your deck board using the specialized stepped bit, guided by the jig’s hardened steel drill guides. Next, you drive the specialized self-tapping deck screws through the same drill guides and into the joist as the depth collar precisely controls the depth. That’s it, you’re done! You’ve just created an incredibly strong and sturdy joint with no visible fastener.























Works with a wide variety

of decking materials.

For the best results, we recommend composite deck boards which prevent shrinking/swelling/splitting. Select a solid composite material with no machined grooves. Also works great with native softwoods such as Redwood, Cedar, Pressure Treated Pine, and ACQ, along with certain Tropical Hardwoods like Ipe, Red Balau, and Ironwood.























Deck Screws

Kreg Deck Screws were designed specifically for use with the Kreg Deck Jig™, although they can also be used as simple face-screws for a variety of outdoor projects. All Kreg Deck screws feature a KTX #1 Square Drive to reduce cam-out, a flat-bottom head which resists splitting, and a self-tapping tip which drills its own hole as it’s driven.



Deck Screws are available to two weather resistant finishes; Protec-Kote™ and Stainless. Protec-Kote™ screws feature three anti-corrosion layers protect against rusting in a wide variety of decking applications. A good choice for a wide variety of decking applications, including ACQ treated lumber. For even more protection, choose Stainless. Kreg Stainless screws provide the best protection against corrosion in the long-term.

Has anybody tried this jig on 2x material despite the warning it won't work? From the instructions, I can't see why it wouldn't with longer screws, but don't want to buy the kit, try out and find out it won't do.

Chris, you'll want air movement to keep the deck dry as well as to clear debris, etc. Either way, you'll need some spacing to allow for the Deck Jig to drill/drive correctly.

Should I still use the spacers for composite decking even though there will be no shrinking? Other than for water and debris removal, is it necessary?

Larry, that is correct, the Deck Jig is not currently designed to work with '2x' material which is 1-1/2" thick.

Comment by Larry Imhoff on May 13, 2010 at 6:18am
I am adding to an existing deck that has 1 1/2 inch flooring. Will the deck jig and fasteners work with 1 1/2 inch flooring? The video only mentions 3/4 to 1 1/4 inch flooring, so should I assume that it won't?

Kenneth, if you're using a material that has a LOT of shrinkage, the Deck Jig might not be your best bet. The spacing we use is essential for proper installation of the deck boards. For most decking materials, this isn't a problem... and it all depends on how large of a gap you want for air flow, debris removal, etc. Something to keep in mind.

John, thanks for posting your insight into the Deck Jig! Really glad it worked well for you and there was no splintering or exposed heads! That's what we like to hear. As for the material of the jig... keep in mind this is incredibly durable reinforced material which we gladly back with a lifetime warranty! We've tried to hard to break them, and believe me it's a difficult feat! I think you'll be very pleased with the durability

Thanks again for the feedback!
Do you have any photos of the deck you built!?!

An important update for all Deck Jig early adopters: http://www.kregtool.com/profitEdge_assets/deckBit_notice.pdf

I am going to build a deck with 5/4 wolmanized decking. One of the post asked if there was a problem with spacing because you normly install this decking tight and when it dries there is spacing. Do you think with 4/25 jig the spacing would be to large.
