The Cobra® Hybrid 8-18 clip is a matte black dual-material fastener that prevents light reflections. Thanks to its stainless steel hooks on the underside, the Cobra® Hybrid 8-18 clip effectively maintains your deck boards against the joist.
No need for clamps, vices or board spacers: the Cobra® clip reduces the building time of your deck by at least 30%, compared to a screwed installation.
Only a single screw is necessary per clip and thanks to its self-drilling screw, just a simple end piece (sold with clips and screws) is necessary to fasten the Cobra® fastener onto the joist.
Our design office patented this "Hybrid" clip model made with two complementary materials in order to benefit from their intrinsic characteristics. The Cobra® Hybrid 8-18 clip and its screw ensure rust-free resistance to extreme temperatures, insects, detergents, chlorine, frost and moisture.
Resistance to stripping varies depending on the joist type:
Be careful with projects in "polluted" environments. Regarding projects less than 50 m from a coastline or in confined or poorly ventilated spaces or in a constant saline atmosphere, please consult us.
The Cobra Hybrid clip is universal. It screws on all your joists, whether made of wood or aluminium, thanks to an ultra-effective screw. A unique clip designed for all deck projects.
Hooks are made of 304-grade stainless steel. This austenitic stainless steel is currently being used as tools to guarantee clip hardness and to ensure good maintenance of the plated board against the joist, while reducing board expansion.
The pre-integrated screw is made of 410-grade hardened stainless steel. Metal alloy used for wood screws, turbines, pumps and cutlery.
The base is made of Polypropylene. It is often found in the automotive industry, industrial mechanical parts and the photovoltaic industry because of its resistance to wear. We also chose this semi-crystalline thermoplastic for several reasons. In fact, beyond its excellent mechanical and thermal resistance, it possesses a low friction coefficient, good electrical insulation and high damping capacity.
The Start/End clip may be used as a complement to avoid any apparent traces of screws on the deck. Otherwise, it is possible to use Cobra® WPC coloured-head, stainless steel screws.
The Cobra® Hybrid clip enables simplified installation of your deck boards. The clip and the screw are already assembled, and they only need to be screwed in to your aluminium or wooden joist. Quick clip-on for considerable time savings!
A special end piece with an elongated head is screwed in (or unscrewed) between two boards and is provided in the trim. This offers a significant advantage when replacing a defective board or accessing cables under your decking without having to remove the entire assembly.
It is also possible to use rivets; however, the entire deck will no longer be removable.
1 - you unscrew the clips
2 - you remove clips on the ends
3 - you remove the old board
4 - you install the new board
5 - you put the clips back
6 - you screw in the new board
