Adding to its list of product innovation credits, Trex was recently honored with a 2021 Golden Hammer Award by Hardware + Building Supply (HBS) Dealer for the recently released Trex Universal Fastener Installation Tool.
The new Universal Fastener Installation Tool cuts installation time in half by allowing the installer to properly activate hidden fasteners in one easy step.The specially designed nose cone ensures the bit hits the fastener head at just the right drive angle, enabling installers to fully tighten each clip and easily slide the next board into place.
Lightweight and durable, the tool also features a rotatable handle that allows for pushing and pulling from a variety of angles, along with a handy bit holder on the underside.
“Receiving a Golden Hammer Award is always rewarding because it recognizes products that bring ingenuity and new levels of excellence to the building industry,” said Leslie Adkins, VP of marketing for Trex. “In the case of our Universal Fastener Installation Tool, we share credit with our valued TrexPro contractors who provided input that inspired the award-winning design. It’s an ingenious, yet simple and inexpensive tool that makes it easier and faster to install decking with hidden fasteners and should be in every deck builder’s toolbox.”
When compared to alternative installation methods, this inexpensive tool is a great value for installers of any skill level.
Trex is currently the world’s largest manufacturer of high-performance, wood-alternative decking and railing assemblies, with nearly 30 years of product experience.
