Decking Installation Aid

From £10.43 £8.69

The Decking Installation Aid is a clever device designed to help create a consistent gap between deck boards and to quickly position screws in exactly the same location on each deck board. This not only speeds up the installation process but also helps make the finished deck neater and more visually appealing.

At a Glance

  • Helps to create a consistent gap between deck boards.
  • Guide holes for screws mean easy installation.
  • Gaps can be varied between 5mm and 8mm.
  • Compatible with the universal decking connector.
  • Enables and aesthetically pleasing, uniform finish.

The Decking Installation Aid has two different sides measuring 5mm and 7mm thick to accommodate different gap requirements between boards. If an additional 1mm is required the aid can be easily transformed by breaking off the adapters situated on the side and sliding them into the slots to create a 6mm or 8mm spacer respectively.

Simply insert the Decking Installation Aid between the boards and leave it in situ whilst the boards are fixed to ensure the gap remains consistent. Deck boards can be pre-drilled through the guide holes, thus eliminating the need to measure and mark each position. There are three guide holes, positioned 15mm, 20mm, and 25mm from the edge of the deck board.

The installation aids are sold in packs of four or as a kit, which includes two installation aids, a drill bit and two 50mm T25 star drive bits.
