37_zipbolt_01ZIPBOLT-UT-DRAWBOLT is a smaller version of the popular Zipbolt connector.

The Drawbolt has a 1/2"-thick profile, all-metal housing and is used to join countertops and panels. It is installed with a standard 4mm Allen key, hex bit or driving tool. Instead of fumbling with wrenches in a confined space, the Drawbolt connection takes only seconds, thereby reducing installation time, according to the distributor. Drawbolts retail for under $2 each. Contact: Horner Millwork, Somerset, MA. Tel: 508-679-6479. www.hornermillwork.com or www.zipbolt.com.au
