The holiday season means guests, parties and getting your house prepared.   

Security and Peace of Mind:  Add a deadbolt to frequently used rear entries and make it a touch screen to provide keyless access to children and guests.

More Light Where You Need It:  Affordable power stations for the garage make holiday lights and decorations a snap.

Indoor Spaces: A few quick fixes make a big difference with multipurpose hand tools that pack a big-project punch, and shine up furniture and wood crafts fast with permanent finish wipes in just one step.
