FastenMaster will be featuring two new additions to its fastener line at the IBS show between January 31–February 2, at booth C9325 at the Las Vegas Convention Center: the VersaLOK Structural Wood Screw, and the MVP Multipurpose Wood Screw. VersaLOK is a highly versatile fastener that provides the strength of a ½” lag bolt, with the installation ease and speed of a LOK. VersaLOK is a flat head, heavy-duty wood screw available in 6”, 8” and 10” lengths, does not require predrilling, offers higher design shear strength than ½” lag bolts, and has a TORX ttap drive system for stable installation. In addition, the fastener is IBC/IRC code compliant, provides ProjectLife coating guaranteed for the life of the project, and is great for angle bracing, retaining walls, and carrying beam connections.

The new MVP Multipurpose Wood Screw is designed for framing, cabinetry, and other wood-to-wood applications. MVP fasteners are IRC/IBC code compliant and feature a TORX ttap drive. MVP also has FastenMaster’s exclusive SureSink Head to prevent spin outs, ProjectLife Coating for corrosion resistance, and a SureStart Point for easy installation. The 10-gauge MVP fasteners are available in lengths from 1½”-4”, and packaged in small job, PRO-Packs, and in bulk quantities.

“We have a lot planned for this year’s show and will have a very interactive booth where PROs will be able to test-drive these new products,” said Web Shaffer, FastenMaster general manager.

FastenMaster’s products are engineered for structural, decking, and trim applications in residential construction, and its product line includes the LOK Line of structural wood screws, Tiger Claw Hidden Deck Clip System, FrameFAST Structural Framing System, TrussBRACE roof truss support system, as well as Cortex Hidden Fastening Systems for deck and trim applications.
