Kreg Owners' Community

On March 23rd, 2010, we announced the all-new Kreg Deck Jig™ through the Kreg Jig Owners' Community.  Community members were the very first customers to hear about the new tool, outside the walls of Kreg.  On May 1st, the Deck Jig will start become available at many dealers across the country, including Lowe's, Woodcraft, Amazon, and more!

"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.


Layout Mitered Corners, Set 3/16" Reveals, Transfer Measurements, Align / Square Your Projects, Set Bit / Blade Heights, Layout Wall Studs, Use as a Basic Rule, Marking for Layout, Use as a Simple Level"



This thread is a place where members can post their thoughts/comments/questions/reviews regarding the Deck Jig, as well as posting photos, reviews, applications of their own Deck Jig.  Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Wondering what other applications our community members will come up with for the Deck Jig...

Perhaps hidden fastening for picnic table construction?


How about outdoor fencing?

I thought about the picnic table application as soon as I saw how the jig worked! Please keep the great products coming.
How bout you quit teasing us and get this tool out on the market!...lmao
I was wondering if this could be used for flooring... if you cut the rabbet (if that is what it is) joint shallow enough not to interfer with the angle of the screw and then didn't use the spacer. (This would be for custom cut flooring of course.)
Michael, according to a few of my sources, many local Lowe's stores have begun putting the Deck Jig on the shelf a bit earlier than planned... The Deck Jig should be available at many Kreg dealers starting May 1st.
thx for the info KregRep!
Saw an add for the DeckJig in the Family Handyman... Happened to be in woodcraft last night and was pleasantly surprised to see it on the shelf.

I am adding on to our deck and wanted a concealed fastener system... This looked to fit the bill.

Only concern now... I do my deck boards at 45 degrees. Being that it has the two 45 degree drill ports I figured that would be the way to go... the video that comes with the unit still suggests using the center hole though.... weird.
Check out this post too if you are building a deck that needs stairs.
Building stairs for my house.

Pocket holes can be used to attach stairs from below too.

Drew, that is correct... we tested all possible joints to figure out the strongest possible way to join the deck boards to the joists... the image below shows you our recommended technique for joining:

I want to use this jig on my next deck project with 5/4 X 6 composite deck boards. As I understand it the boards will only be fastened from one side and I am wondering if there might be any curling occurring.

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
