MANTIS HIDDEN DECK FASTENER Sure Drive USA manufacturers a wide variety of deck fastening solutions. Our hidden deck fastener line includes The Mantis Clip for grooved boards. Voted as the easiest hidden deck fastener to install, it has been a favorite with decking contractors as well as DIY homeowners. For easy installation, the Senco Eliminator RCS with E-Z Slide attachment is a pneumatic tool for installing Mantis using Ballistic Nail Screws to fasten grooved decking up to 70-per- cent faster than conventional methods. The Mantis clip is recommended by top decking manufacturers like MoistureShield, Trex, Gossen, ChoiceDek and more. The Mantis is different than the other “generic”
clips on the market because it is built with a base that promotes airflow to ensure the joist structure remains protected. The Mantis clip is available in four profiles to precisely fit specific boards and is backed by a 30-year warranty against loose deck boards (unmatched in the industry). Additional Sure Drive hidden deck-fastening options include the Hidden Link for solid edge decking (avail- able in two varieties), and the Shadoe Track metal channels which are available in 4- and 8-ft. lengths and can be used for all types of decking.

READY SEAL A one-step product like Ready Seal allows you to stain and seal wood in a single process. Traditional products require using back-brushing techniques to cover brush strokes and to make overlapping stain blend properly, but not Ready Seal. Ready Seal is a penetrating stain that absorbs into the wood fibers rather than just leaving a surface film which will crack, flake and peel off as wood expands and con- tracts. Its deep penetration moisturizes wood with waterproofing oils and creates ultimate UV protection
in a flexible barrier that keeps out moisture, mold and fungi. It contains no linseed or vegetable oils that pro- mote algae and fungus growth in wood. Ready Seal can be easily applied with a sprayer, roller or brush. It will not lap, run or streak, and no back-brushing is necessary. It can be applied in any temperature, and no sanding or stripping is required for reapplication. It can also withstand rain within minutes of application, and Ready Seal is VOC compliant in all 50 states. Visit booth 1153 or ReadySeal.com.
