Its recent YouTube video walks you through the installation process of its hidden deck fastener line, which includes The Mantis Clip for grooved boards, voted as the easiest hidden deck fastener to install- a favorite with decking contractors as well as DIY homeowners.
The Eliminator RCS with E-Z Slide attachment is now made for the company by Senco. It is a pneumatic installation tool for installing Mantis using Ballistic Nail Screws to fasten grooved decking up to 75% faster than conventional methods. The Mantis Eliminator RCS is a compact pneumatic nailer that drives the Ballistic NailScrews used to install Mantis Clips. Its innovative nosepiece design provides accurate fastener placement. The Eliminator RCS is constructed with durable, high-quality materials while still being lightweight and ergonomically balanced. The tool is fitted with a newly modified EZ-Slide attachment that includes a rare earth magnet to make installing Mantis Clips fast and easy. It also has an industry leading 3 year limited warranty. The Mantis clip is recommended by many of the leading composite decking manufacturers and is different than the other “generic” clips on the market because it is built with a base that promotes airflow to insure the joist structure remains protected and dry.
The clip is available in four profiles to precisely fit specific boards. Contact Sure Drive sales department at (877) 767-1850 or email for more information at to learn more about our innovative deck fastening products.
