HEADCOTE® CAP-TOR® xd Deck Screws

Cap-Tor xd is the only line of deck screws on the market designed specifically for synthetic decking. Typical decking fasteners cause several defects in the surface of synthetic lumber: dimpling, white shear and curled waste. Lumber decks fastened with Cap-Tor have a clean, smooth and uniform appearance.

Headcote Cap-Tor xd screws are available in Grade 305 stainless steel for excellent corrosion resistance. For locations close to or on the water, especially salt water, Grade 316 stainless steel will provide even greater corrosion resistance. Headcote CAP-TOR xd screws available in different head colours, matching all our colour options.

Cap-Tor xd screws feature a unique triangular thread design, a reverse thread section to prevent mushrooming, a type 17 tip (augur point) for speed and ease of installation, and a specially engineered head that cleanly penetrates the hard Lumberock® product.


Problems With Traditional Deck Fasteners


This can occur if the fastener head does not fully cut through the cap layer, resulting in a slight sloping area of decking around the fastener head.

White Shear

Sometimes the dimpling can stretch the cap layer to where the color is slightly deformed, resulting in a faint but noticeable lightening of the dimpled area.

Curled Waste

This can occur when the fastener head does penetrate the cap layer, but there is a ring of excess cap material that stays attached to the board, usually in one spot.


Headcote CAP-TOR® xd Features


Star Recess

Extra deep T-20 star recess to minimize the "wobble" at screw starting found in other brands.

Undercut Head Design

A specially engineered head that cleanly penetrates hard synthetic products.

Transverse™ Threading

Eliminates "mushroom" effect common to decking installed using standard deck screws without pre-drilling by preventing debris from the hole from forming a mound around the screw head.

Auger Point

Type 17 Auger tip for faster, easier entry and helps prevent splitting.
