With the new, patent-pending ArchClip System, one mason can build an arch in just a few simple steps — a drastic departure from conventional methods. The new system is comprised of two components — an ArchClip and an ArchStrip™ — and is ideal for both residential and commercial use. Each clip is easily positioned around an arch window ledge using a removable insert that serves as a guide for accurate positioning. The ArchStrip feeds into the mouth of the clip, creating a perfect arch form, and is removed once the arch is built. For more information, call (800) 264-5141, or visit www.archclip.com.
