  • FAQs
    Can Fiberon Phantom Hidden Deck Fasteners be used with decking other than Fiberon?

    Phantom Fasteners are for use with most composite decking products. Non-grooved composite decking boards can be grooved** with a slot cutting bit to accommodate the Phantom Fastener. Recommended bits are:

    • UFO, PN: The Groover
    • Woodstock International, PN: DC1098
    • Bosch, PN: 85530M
    • Sears, PN: SPM215190769
    • Sears, PN: SPM215190779
    • Grizzly Industrial, PN: C1098

    **Cutting grooves or slots into deck boards may void the manufacturer's warranty. Fiberon does not warrant or guarantee your warranty will remain valid.
