Home Improvement Finds for the Holidays
By: Danny Lipford
With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to tackle those nagging DIY home improvement projects to get your house in top shape before guests arrive! Check out these three great products for your home and shop.
The Black & Decker Matrix Quick Connect System allows you to turn the 12-Volt or 20-Volt, cordless, lithium-ion Matrix drill/driver into an entire workshop of power tools in seconds.
Six interchangeable attachments are available for purchase separately that allow you to turn the Matrix drill/driver into an impact driver, oscillating cutter, circular trim saw, sander, jig saw, or router.
Hands-Free Kitchen Faucet
Built-in sensors in the Moen MotionSense kitchen faucet allows for convenient hands-free operation to provide instant water whenever you need it without having to turn a handle or even touch the faucet.
The “Wave Sensor” above the faucet lets you to turn the water on and off with a simple wave of your hand while the “Ready Sensor” on the base activates the water flow when an object is placed under the faucet. A single handle on the side of the faucet allows you to control the water temperature and flow rate as well as operate the faucet by hand.
The faucet operates on AA batteries or an optional AC adaptor and includes an LED light to indicate when the faucet is in use. Moen MotionSense faucets are available in stainless steel, chrome, and oil rubbed bronze finishes.
High-Tech Stud Sensors
To tackle home improvement projects ranging from hanging pictures on walls to installing light fixtures to finding hidden wires, you need an easy to use, reliable stud sensor to know where to nail or cut into walls and ceilings.
Stanley Stud Sensors are available in a wide range of models that can detect wood or metal behind walls or ceilings anywhere from 3/4″ deep to 1½” or more. They also have the ability to detect live wires in walls up to 2” deep.
The ergonomic design with soft grips makes Stanley stud sensors easy to use.
Whether you’re tackling home improvement projects or looking for the perfect holiday gift, you can’t go wrong with the Moen MotionSense faucet, Stanley Stud Sensor, or Black & Decker Matrix Drill/Driver.
