Deck Clipper. Using hidden deck-fastening hardware makes for a neater-looking composite deck but takes longer than using face-installed screws. Tiger Claw says the new Semi-Automatic Hidden Deck Fastener Installation Gun speeds installation of the company's clips. The user slides a clip onto the gun's nose, then shoots a combination screw/nail through the clip. The nailer costs $279. Tiger Claw, 800/928-4437. www.deckfastener.com
