DeckLok Bracket Systems

DeckLok is a bracket system that secures deck components to the structure of the deck in a way that is revolutionizing the deck industry.
It is a patented bracket system that strengthens the vulnerable connections between deck components (ledger connection, railpost and stair stringers) by adding a bolted attachment at critical structural locations.

The DeckLok Bracket System creates stronger deck connections by redirecting the force of the load from "pullout" to a connection in "shear". The DeckLok bracket system provides the strength required to meet IRC 2006 Safety Code requirements for both lateral pullout and rail post stability while using your current deck construction techniques and designs.

Current deck fastening techniques rely on resistance to "pullout" force -- like using a nail to hold a crowbar. The DeckLok Bracket System creates stronger deck connections by redirecting the force of the load from "pullout" to a connection in "shear" at the deck floor joist.

The DeckLok Bracket is designed to secure the three critical connections of a wood structure (the deck) to an adjacent building.

These three critical connections are:
1. The ledger board attachments to an existing structure
2. The guardrail post attachments to a structural wood frame
3. The stair stringer connections to a structural wood frame.
