Deck board fastening and spacer tool

In This Old House TV Episode #1012H which aired June 23, 2012 Tom used a tool to space and fasten hidden screws for mahogany deck boards on the front porch of the Bedford House.
This tool serves as a spacer (fits over the 5/4" deck board) and as a guide for the toe-nail screws inserted in the sides of the boards. What is the name of this special tool as well as the manufacturer and where it might be purchased?


Re: Deck board fastening and spacer tool

camo deck fastening system, they have two different versions of the tool.... one is diy grade and one is pro grade. ive used, compared to other systems i find it much slower and the screws are way over priced since they are just epoxy coated screws, they cost almost as much as stainless steel screws which last longer

i believe home depot is the only place you can buy this system from though there other ones such as the kreg hidden deck fastener system which is very similar and might be what camo is trying to copy.. not sure who came out with theres first
