The fastener kit is ideal for many light-duty uses—installing lights in drywall, plaster, brick wall, concrete wall or wood. Easy to install, the product uses a bit to drill holes, insert the anchor and place the item against the wall over the anchor, then drive the screw through the hole into the anchor. Designed to prevent problems during installation, the ribs prevent the anchor from spinning in the hole while tightening the screw. The bantam plastic anchor is intended for light-duty, non-critical applications. It can be used with a variety of foundation materials, including concrete, block and brick. Although it is possible to use in wallboard, the holding values may vary and be unpredictable, depending on the application. These anchors should not be used in overhead applications or in situations where holding values are crucial. For more information, visit confast.com.
Modular Auto-feed Screw System
The DS534-AC is an all-in-one kit that includes a collated screw attachment, as well as a 4,000-RPM driver that makes short work of drywall installation. The drywall driver can be used by itself to drive bulk screws. For higher volume and productivity, the auto-feed system can be attached directly to the front of the driver, allowing users to feed 1- to 3-inch belt-collated screws automatically. Finally, a 3-foot extension pole allows users to access hard-to-reach areas with less strain. Attachments are available for select tools. All kits include a collated attachment, extension pole, power grip handle, three drive bits and all necessary adaptors. For more information, visit senco.com.
Economy-sized Fastener Boxes
The economy-sized EPS/XPS fastener and plate boxes Wind-Devil 2, ULP302/ULP-402 Plates and select assembled fasteners are now available in a 250 count box. The decision was made to offer these smaller quantity packs after receiving feedback from contractors and distributors. Now, contractors can streamline that cost into one specific project, which its distributor network projects will certainly help. Look for the economy-sized fasteners and plates at the local building materials yard or online at wind-lock.com.
Electric Wheeled-portable Compressors
Jenny Products Inc.
The K-series electric wheeled-portable compressors are durable and powerful, yet highly portable. The series features the renowned “K” pump, which is a heavy-duty, single-stage cast-iron compressor pump.

Operating on 115- or 230-volt single-phase power, the compressors can deliver as much as to 8.4 CFM @ 100 PSI for quick recovery. An optional dual voltage feature allows for easy switching between 120 and 230 volts, whereas a dual control option offers start/stop or constant-run operation. Additionally, the units are belt-driven with a large flywheel for easy start-ups and extra cooling, and a directional air shroud helps further reduce pump temperatures.
