formule POM

POM, a high quality polymer

Cobra® D-LOCK clip is made of polyoxymethylene (POM), a reinforced polymer material. Thanks to its structure and high crystallinity, POM provides excellent physical and mechanical characteristics: high tensile and impact resistance, excellent fatigue resistance, and very good resistance to chemical products.  This material is particularly resistant to extreme temperatures  from -30°C to +50°C.

Board ventilation and drainage

COBRA® D-LOCK clips are 8mm thick and separate the deck board from the joists.  The clip allows good air and water circulation between the joist and the deck board.

This is an advantage compared to traditional fastening systems that place the board directly on the joist.

High mechanical properties

Cobra® D-LOCK withstands more than 250kg before bending and more than 350kg before breakage

Mechanical tests were carried out by the ICAM institute in France, to make sure the clip suitable for most types of decking boards.

Installation in 4 steps

The Cobra® D-LOCK is very easy to install using the drilling template included in the kit.  The drilling template is a metal bracket that allows pre-drilling to be done directly on the deck board, at the right spot.  The Cobra® D-LOCK clips can then be screwed with no positioning errors.

Here are the 4 installation steps and how to use the different components provided in the kit:

  1. START: Position and attach the first board with the Start/End clips.
  2. NEXT: Attach the following  boards with the standard Cobra® D-LOCK clip.
  3. CROSS: Attach 2 boards at the junction on the same joist
  4. END: Attach the last board with the Start/End clips
Step 1

Position the Cobra D-lock clips using the drilling template

Step 2

Flip back the deck board.

Step 3

The deck board is placed against the previous board.

Step 4

The DECKSPACER board spacers are used to secure the right spacing between the boards side to side
