If you have teenagers, you may not want to fix that squeaky floor in the hallway. After all, squeaky floors can be a pretty effective “broken curfew detector” in the middle of the night. For most people though, a squeaky floor is an aggrevation they have to live with. "Squeeeeek No More" uses an innovative screw that locks the squeaky flooring to the joist, then breaks off below the surface. Simply place the appropriate alignment fixture over the carpet and drive one of the special screws through the fixture and into the floor.When it bottoms out, use the guide to snap it off below the surface, locking the floor to the floor joist. Very simple, and very fast. Carpet Kit Includes 50 Screws, Carpeted Floor Fixture, Driver Bit with stop, the Squeeeeek No More Joist Finding Screw and Instructions to help you find those joists. Made in the USA.
