The Twist n' Grout is used with a bag having two openings, such as a cone-shaped bag used to dispense mortar. The tool seals one opening and assists in forcing flowable substance out of the bag by twisting. The Twist n' Grout provides a better method for applying a constant pressure to the bag, thereby forcing the mortar out in a continuous flow. For more information, call (860) 668-7602.

The NoiseBuster Electronic Noise Cancellation (ENC) Earmuff delivers up to 20dB of ENC and has a passive noise reduction rating of 26dB (over-the-head). The NoiseBuster ENC Earmuff uses a microphone inside the ear cup to listen to noise coming into the ear. The system takes that information and uses it to create a noise wave that is identical to, but directly opposite of, the one coming into the ear. The "anti-noise" wave is output through a speaker, also located in the ear cup. When the two waves meet, the noise is significantly reduced. For more information, call (877) 226-1944, or visit www.noisebuster.net.
