The launch of the Grip-Rite® Ninja Hidden Deck Clip on May 1st, 2023 was an exciting innovation to hit the market just in time for prime deck build and remodel season. The Grip-Rite® Ninja Hidden Deck Clip is the result of fast-paced and diligent product development, designed to address a key pain point for deck builders and contractors: how to speed up the job site project without compromising on quality.

Grip-Rite® saw an opportunity to enter the decking clip market and develop a solution that would not only allow for faster installs of grooved deck boards but is also easier to use and more durable long term. Grip-Rite’s engineering team created a clip that can be installed one-handed because the screw and the clip are combined in one system. 

The compression lever on the clip is designed to fit into most of the common grooved composite boards on the market so that you can place a clip over every joist, set in the next deck board and only fasten once — no need to soft set or start the screw. With one clip, the guesswork is taken out of deck board spacing, eliminating the frustration of clips falling out of the groove and onto the ground.

The Grip-Rite® Ninja Hidden Deck Clip also self-spaces, providing airflow and space for water to run off. The coated #316 marine-grade stainless steel screw and Grip-Bite razor teeth are corrosion-resistant and able to be used in any location. The clip features patented Grip-Bite razor teeth, designed to prevent boards from getting loose over time from everyday deck use. This ensures a secure hold and avoids callbacks for professional deck builders. “The clip is specifically designed to over-fasten, not under-fasten, giving the user peace of mind,” explains Michael Engle, Senior Director of Product for PrimeSource® Building Products.

“Grip-Rite’s focus on creating a product that adds value to both professionals and DIYers aligns with our overall brand values. We have always been known for providing high-quality products that generations trust and lean on; the Ninja Clip is no exception. Not only did the Grip-Rite engineering team focus on installation, but the Ninja Clip will also help the deck hold up over time,” adds Michael.

“The patent pending design exemplifies innovation in deck building. On grooved deck board installs, the boards can move with temperature cycling if they are not held solidly in place. That’s where the Grip-Bite razor teeth come in and dig into the planks to keep everything tight,” says Erik Timothy, Director of Engineering at PrimeSource® Building Products.

Grip-Rite’s product development process involved researching the top deck clips on the market and working closely with our engineering team to ensure that the Ninja Clip was both different from competitors and solved an issue they hadn’t yet. The result is a clip that is faster and more effective than others on the market, making it the new go-to choice for builders looking to speed up their project completion without sacrificing quality.

Deck builders are looking for ways to differentiate themselves and offer unique designs and the latest pattern trends. The Grip-Rite® Ninja Hidden Deck Clip‘s innovative Flex-Fit universal clip design means it can be used to create straight, diagonal or herringbone patterns. If you can dream it, you can build it.

We are proud to launch the  Grip-Rite® Ninja Hidden Deck Clip and are confident that it will be THE solution for pros and DIYers alike. “Once a contractor tries the Ninja Clip, they’ll never want another system — by saving both time and money the Ninja Clip provides unmatched value, ” continues Michael.
