A Dandy Idea

As the days turn colder, our thoughts turn to work that we can do inside the home.

This past weekend, my husband and I did just that as we tackled a creaky floor that has been bothering us for quite awhile. We were unsure how to fix it, other than calling a repairman, until I discovered this fantastic little kit in a catalogue.

The “Squeeeek no more” is an easy to use kit that eliminates annoying floor squeaks.

Containing a plastic molded alignment and depth control fixture, 50 specially scored 3-inch x 1/8-inch diameter screws, a customized driver bit to regulate the depth at which to drive the screw, and two joist-finding screws to help find the joist from above, the kit has everything you need!

Simply find your joist (this may take a couple of attempts…ok…maybe several) and then proceed per instructions.

The result in our house was a collective sigh of relief!
Purchase your kit here!
