Conceal your support

2. Conceal your support

Many people don't mind seeing screw heads on their deck. But if you do, you have options. Hidden fasteners, like the EB-TY connectors shown here (, sometimes require that a single anchor row use visible screws (which you can then hide with wooden plugs). But the fasteners themselves are all but invisible once installed, resulting in a deck surface with a clean, simple appearance. Hidden fasteners come in a variety of styles with differing methods of attachment, so check with your materials supplier or deck builder to see what's available.
