Tiger Claw, Trex sign deal

Tiger Claw and Trex have announced a multi-year partnership involving a new fastener called the Trex Hideaway. According to the terms of the deal, Bristol, Conn.-based Tiger Claw will manufacture two types of stainless steel clips exclusively for Trex.

Both products are hidden fasteners designed for Trex Brasilia, one of the Winchester, Va.-based manufacturer’s styles of composite decking and railing. One clip is for use between deck boards, and the other is for use on outer boards. This outer board fastener, which allows for one-sided connections, is the first of its kind on the market, according to Tiger Claw.
