Jomar Valve. Www.jomarvalve.com Leak detection The Spectroline OPTI-LUX 400 (P/N OLX-400) is a powerful rechargeable violet light LED leak-detection flashlight. It emits less visible light than standard blue light inspection lamps, so refrigerant leaks are easier to spot, thus saving valuable diagnostic time and money. The light OPTI-LUX 400 features a high-output violet light LED that causes dyes to fluoresce more brilliantly and with greater contrast. It has power comparable to high-intensity 150-watt lamps and works with all popular universal/POE dyes. The light is compact and lightweight, allowing it to get into tight and cramped areas that larger lamps can't. It features an inspection range of 25' or more. A rugged corrosion-resistant anodized lamp body stands up to years of heavy use. Spectroline.

Www.matco-norca.com Air leakage prevention AllergyZone's FilterLock was developed to solve a common problem where homeowners and contractors fail to cover the filter slot/door where the 1" air filter is installed. The result is unfiltered air is drawn into the HVAC system and bypasses the air filter instead of passing through the filter. That air also has to be heated or cooled, which drives up energy costs. Filter Lock is an inexpensive solution to air leakage at the filter slot. It installs in seconds without any tools. It is a one-size-fits-all product that works with any brand of 1" air filter up to 25" long. Built-in magnets hold it securely in place on metal ductwork. AllergyZone. Www.allergyzone.com Closet bolts Blue Monster Advantage closet bolts with their broached-tip design indicating the direction of the bolt's foot underneath the flange while setting the toilet, now are packaged with a second set of stainless washers and brass nuts to simplify installation and ensure the job is done properly. The bolts feature raised knobs on the underside of the foot that can prevent movement after setting the toilet. These unique closet bolts are machined to facilitate a clean break-off at the desired level, eliminating the need to saw the bolt at the proper length. This action takes seconds, prevents marking the china with a saw and provides a secure fit for the universal bolt cap. It also allows for easy removal of the nut if disassembly is required.
