Installation Information

Pre ~ drilling is required when:

  • Installing into capstock decking (Where a composite core is wrapped by a vinyl or plastic shell)
  • Installing in extreme temperatures (Where temperature is below 40° F or above 80° F)
  • Installing into older framing or joists. In these cases, use a 7/32" drill bit to pilot a hole halfway through the deck board (not the framing).
  • Install a few Cortex screws and plugs to check for appearance before continuing. If you experience any issues, stop installation and call FastenMaster at the number below.

Additional installation tips:

  • Use an 18V cordless drill on highest speed setting. (Impact driver is not recommended)
  • Drive fastener in one continuous motion until the driver bit releases from the head of the fastener. Do not slow or stop the drill.
