The LOX decking screw designed specifically for all types of composite materials from Grabber uses the company's proprietary drive system to deliver the maximum torque for fully driven screws outs or stripped recesses. The undercut head design leaves a finish without mushrooms or burrs. The screws are available in tan, Redwood and grey. For free information, visit Grabber



The Blueline series of bath tubs from Zuma are inspired by Japanese soaking tubs. Crafted in rectangle and oval styles, both have channels to allow water to overflow. Chromatherapy, optional angle pillows, grab bars and heaters are also available. The tubs are backed by a 20-year limited warranty. For free information, go to Zuma's web site


The ProSite Miter Saw Protractor from Starrett instantly transfers any angle directly to the miter saw. The red scale and arrow (miter cut function) provides the exact miter saw setting to make perfect miter joints. The tools are made from ¼-inch aluminum alloy for durability and are compact enough to fit in a back pocket. For free information, go to Starrett's web page



The Perma-Guard Mold and Mildew-Proof Interior Sealer from Zinsser is a clear coating guaranteed to prevent the growth of mold and mildew for 5 years. The sealer combines EPA-registered mildewcides with the company's proprietary acrylic resin system. It adheres to ASTM D5590 and D3273 standards and is intended for interior wall cavities, trusses, frame and interior side OSB lumber. For free information, go to Zinsser's web page


The stainless steel thermostatic shower valve with hand shower from MGS is offered as an exposed or in-wall mixer with built-in diverter that controls the hand shower unit and fixed showerhead.
