CrabWood Starting/Finishing Clips are made from 304 stainless steel and supplied with 304 stainless steel screws for fixing to timber joists. These clips are supplied individually.
The starting/finishing clip is used on the outside edge of both the first or starting board and the last or finishing board as there is only 1 grooved edge of the decking board to work with and not enough joist to be able to use a standard deck clip.
One clip should be used every 800mm or every 2nd joist. If you are fixing to metal joists we recommend you drill the hole into the metal frame before using a pop rivet to fix the clip. If the finishing board has been cut down to fit in a defined space and the outer groove is removed then we recommend using a router or biscuit cutter to cut a groove in the board edge every 800mm in order to fit the starting/finishing clips.
