About the KlevaKlip ModWood Clip
Kleva Klip Top Fix 88mm Gal (Box 40) “ModWood clip” was developed in conjunction with the ModWood decking company. The “brief” from ModWood in approx 2006 was to make a concealed fixing system that worked well, allowed some degree of expansion and contraction of the board, was easy to use, and had the least possible adverse impact on the ModWood decking boards – meaning a requirement for no deep grooves or significant side penetrations into the boards.

The KlevaKlip ModWood clip does all that was requested, and is ModWood’s preferred method of concealed fixing of their decking boards. Just as ModWood is far and away Australia’s No.1 composite decking board, KlevaKlip is far and away Australia’s No.1 brand of concealed fastening.
Of course not everyone wants concealed fixing for their decking boards – some people still like to see traditional
screws and nails holding down their boards. However, since the inception of Klevaklip back in 2006, many millions of KlevaKlip clips have been used to successfully fix down ModWood decking boards – considering each clip holds 4 boards (137mm wide) or 6 boards (88mm wide), that is an awful lot of decking boards being held down with KlevaKlip.
How does the KlevaKlip ModWood clip work?
KlevaKlip is a multi-board concealed fixing system, working on a "fixed pitch" principle, that provides consistent gapping of the boards. As each board is inserted into the KlevaKlip, it tightens the previous board, providing significant holding power of the board into the clever clip. This mechanical holding is supported by the use of adhesive.
