Moen's Aberdeen high-arc spout puts a new twist on the kitchen faucet with pull-down spout: a pause button that lets users interrupt the water flow without switching off the water at the main handle.

The feature makes it easier to do tasks outside the sink, such as filling several pots or vases, without getting water on the countertop between stops.

Installers will like Moen's Hydrolock connection system, which gives audible and tactile confirmations that the connection is secure. The Hydrolock connections replace traditional threaded connections that require the installer to use a wrench and Teflon tape to connect the waterways in the dark, cramped space under the sink.

With the Hydrolock system, Moen product manager Kevin Campbell says, the installer places a finger over the button on the connector and slides the connector into place. When the connection is secure, the button depresses with a click.

Moen says Hydrolock makes for faster, easier installation and removal and eliminates the possibility of cross-threading during installation. Hydrolock is available on single- and double-handle Aberdeen models.
