Starborn Cap-Tor xd Deck Screw Now Available in 2″

Staraborn 2 Inch Cap-Tor xd Deck Screw

Starborn has a new, shorter version of their Cap-Tor xd screw that is designed to attach PVC and composite decking to rooftop sleeper systems or for use in other applications where the standard 2-1/2″ or 2-3/4″ Starborn Cap-Tor xd Deck Screw is simply too large for the job. Clint DeBoer updated his deck with Deckorators Vista Composite Decking and used the standard #10 2-3/4″ Cap-Tor xd deck screw. The results were excellent and we expect the same from the smaller model.

“We’ve seen a growing demand for rooftop decks in urban areas throughout the U.S. The new two-inch Cap-Tor xd screw is a direct response to this trend, and adds to our growing line of face- and plug-fastening options for rooftop decks.”

– Larry Crossley, Vice President of Sales, Starborn

The new 2″ Starborn Cap-Tor xd Deck Screw, just like longer standard deck sizes, provides a clean, smooth, and uniform finish in PVC and composite capstock decking. They work equally as well in traditional composites. The color matched screws for PVC and composite decking are approved for use with ACQ treated lumber.

All the Starborn Cap-Tor xd screws feature extra deep star drive recesses, undercut heads, tri-lobular shanks, Type 17 auger tips, and are available with either a color matched, epoxy-based polymer resin coating or in color matched Headcote stainless steel (both Grades 305 and 316). Cap-Tor xd screws are also available collated for use with the Starborn Muro Ultra Driver.
