HID Fast Products

HIDfast is the fastest, easiest way to get a fastener free surface for a lasting, beautiful appearance. Patented, worry-free, stainless steel fasteners are collated for easy handling and quick loading. Patent pending pneumatic tool delivers precise, consistent, effortless, installation.

What makes the HID-fast system so fast? Pure and simple, there is NO hardware! No screws, no clips, no clamps. How about 30 seconds per board? If that sounds unrealistic, then you need to watch our videos and see for yourself. All you need is our pneumatic tool, a package of HID-fast fasteners, and a our rubber mallet that comes with the tool, and you're ready to go. Now you can install decking 5 times faster than conventional screws, or nails.
