Deck screw driver device

Saw on a recent show a tool that put screws into the side of a deck board (hidden fastener). What is this tool called, where can it be purchased? Also, can this same tool be used to install composite decking boards using stainles steel screws?

There are different deck screws on the market these days, with various heads. Usually the manufacturers include bits that fit their style.

Re: Deck screw driver device

thanks so much for the information. Basically I am wanting to build a deck using ChoiceDEK by Weyhauser composite deck boards and am looking for a tool/fastener to install deck boards screws are hidden (as opposed to just installing screws through top of deck boards).

Do you know of anyone who has personally used The Hidden Link deck system who could offer me their opinion on how well this product works with composite decking boards?
