Trico Masonry Products LLC
Ogden, Utah

New Products for Masonry Contractors

EZClip provides the ability to have a flush embed plate installation, and is designed to allow for maximum grout consolidation, wall strength and contact between the bolt and plate surface to the grout in the wall cavity. The clips are self-adjusting and aligning to fit the thickness and size of most block walls and plates. Because embed plates are installed as work progresses, no follow-up work is required and blowouts are eliminated. The front of the clip can be easily removed after grouting. The clips install in seconds, reducing labor costs, and are extremely strong. EZClips are compact, lightweight and conveniently kept in supply bags and at workstations. For more information, call (888) 922-8377, or visit www.tricomasonryproducts.com.
