Rain Mover gutter protection is a PET fiber filter that installs along the gutter line and over the hangers or spikes. Manufactured from 100% recycled plastics, it is stable in the environment with an extraordinary long life, the manufacturer said. Rain Mover prevents leaves and debris from clogging the gutter and eliminates mosquitoes and other bugs from infesting them. Rain control through the gutter system also improves the quality of perimeter pest control applications. Rain Mover is easily installed and comes with a peel-and-seal adhesive. The tapered front tucks tightly under the lip for a secure fit, allowing it to withstand the weight of winter snow and ice without diminishing its filtering capability, according to the company.

Strattec Security Corporation’s Bolt Locks are now available for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Bolt’s patented technology adds security and convenience by only needing the truck ignition key to protect stored equipment and trailers. Bolt Locks feature one-key lock technology, which permanently programs the lock to a vehicle’s ignition key. When owners insert their ignition key into the Bolt Lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down to uniquely code the cylinder to that specific key. All Bolt products have a limited lifetime warranty. The company also has advanced the technology to work with higher-security center cut keys, which are difficult to duplicate.
