3/8" IPE Plugs are straight sided wood plugs that fit 3/8" holes on Ipe wood decking, Ipe stairs, boat decks, outdoor furniture and other projects. 3/8" IPE Plugs have flat top, straight sides and slight camfer on bottom for easy installation. Side grain (face grain) helps repel water. All deck plugs are 3/8" tall. Simply tap in with a rubber mallet or similar tool. No glue is necessary, but for wet environments a waterproof glue like an epoxy or Gorrilla glue is recommended to further improve seal. 3/8" IPE Plugs can be sanded, stained and varnished.
Plugs worked well to replace loose and missing plugs in ipe deck. Arrived quickly.

Fast and perfect
Arrived quickly, and exactly as described. To fill the holes in my ipe handrail I followed these steps: 1) Used a counter sink bit to drill a 3/8" diameter hole before attaching the railing with a stainless trim head screw. 2) Cleaned the hole and sprayed it with just a bit of water mist. 3) carefully applied a small amount of urethane glue to the edges of the hole - not too much I didn't want it pushing the plugs out. 4) Install plugs, tapping gently with a rubber mallet to seat them 5) allowed to dry 24 hours. 5) Used sharp chisel, on its bevel edge to carefully knock down the excess plug - be careful! Sometimes the grain shears off below 'grade' so I set the chisel up just a touch. 6) Sanded to bring the plug and wood surface to the same level. 7) Applied Penofin. It looks great! Definitely worth the extra few dollars to plug the holes. Would definitely order again.

The IPE plugs are great. They were better than I expected. I had no problems with either of my two orders. They arrived on time and were correct. It's nice to deal with a company that's hassle free and mean what they say.
Don S., Texas - 3/25/2015
Great Ipe plugs
Super fast shipping and great product!
Iva W, St. Augustine, FL - 2/25/2015
They seemed to work fine. Great look and the price is very reasonable compared to other sources. USPS had a big delay on the supposed "priority shipping", but WIDGETCO once notified of this, sent another bag next day air at their expense. so, they are a great company to work with. Thank you.
[From WIDGETCO: It's rare USPS misses a delivery on Priority Mail, but we are happy to have had the opportunity to remedy it.]

This company always gets it right - in fact the order arrived in Melbourne, Australia before an order from Brisbane placed the same day. Must be the fastest cargo planes around.

Always great service and products. Will use again and again
