ONE SHOT SHOVELS
Root Assassin Garden Tool Co. are known for their patented Root Assassin Shovel & Saw ( 48- and 32-in. D-Handle), popular with anyone needing to slice through roots “like butta!” when transplanting trees and bushes, clearing overgrown areas, trimming tree branches, irrigation trenching and more. Root Assassin’s new One Shot Shovel follows the same innovative style, incorporating patented “wings” on the sides of the shovel blade. The One Shot shovels look like a standard steel spade, but they’re enhanced with steel sides and a large steel foot step on the back of the blade. The One Shot Shovel ensures that whatever is lifted, whether dirt, rocks, mulch, etc., stays on the shovel. No spilling off the sides to ruin your grass or patio, requiring a rake or broom cleanup. Additionally, the extra-large back-end foot step spreads the pressure over the wider foot area for greater leverage and more comfortable operation. The One Shot Shovels are available in 43-in. D-Handle and 60-in. straight long handles. The poles are rugged fiberglass and the blades are quality industrial steel. Both sizes weight approximately 4 lbs. each and they’re backed by a Lifetime Replacement Warranty. Visit www.RootAssassinShovel.com.

A variety of surface options and handrail styles are also available to best suit your environment and preference. The Pathway 3G will not deteriorate in the outdoor elements, and all surface options feature superior slip-resistance to maintain traction in any weather.

With no construction or poured footers, installation is simple, and the ramp system can continually be added upon, reconfigured, or moved to fit changing needs. Typically, no permits are required since the system is not altering or adding to the structure of the residence, which means little or no long-term impact to the yard or home, as well as no effect on the home’s property value.

REVITAL/LINE BASEBOARD REPLACEMENT COVER
Slant/Fin is America’s largest manufacturer of baseboard heating equipment, and the company’s new line of baseboard replacement covers are designed for convenient, long lasting and cost effective installation.

The baseboard covers are fabricated from recycled aluminum and lab-tested to allow for maximum heat output (up to 40 percent more than other brands), while at the same time are aesthetically pleasing.

NOVA NAUTILUS CABLE RAILING
Atlantis Rail’s Nautilus Railing System is nothing new, having been a customer favorite for years, but the company has now teamed the Nautilus System up with the new NOVA II aluminum post kits to create the NOVA Nautilus System. It looks stunning, and is affordable and easy to install. The NOVA Nautilus System utilizes predrilled aluminum posts with a 2-in. stainless steel top and optional bottom rail. It features multiple color options of black, white or bronze to complement any application. The rails are structural strength stainless steel, so the system can be configured with a top rail only or a bottom rail can be added. Cable spacing at 2-3/4in. allows the posts to be spaced up to 6 ft. apart when using a cable stabilizer in the middle, which further reduces cost and expedites installation. A proprietary side-mount fitting with an insulating gasket is used to mount the rails to the post, eliminating concern about potential issues in combining dissimilar metals. HandiSwage components hide the cable connections inside the post, and the easy-to-use swage tool and cover nut sets ensure easy installation and a finished look. Visit www.atlantisrail.com.+

DynaTrap is the creator of technology-driven, indoor/outdoor insect and mosquito traps that are chemical-, pesticide-, and hassle-free. The company now introduced the Flylight Insect Trap, which delivers up to 600 square feet of superior protection against disease-carrying flies, mosquitoes and other flying insects. It utilizes DynaTrap’s proprietary AtraktaGlo Technology to produce a warm UV light at a specifically targeted wavelength, which is irresistibly attractive to insects. The non-toxic StickyTech Glue Card then traps the bugs and conceals them behind a sleek, decorative aluminum panel. “Just plug it in, let it run, and enjoy a bug-free home,” says Juan Rocha, DynaTrap President. “And while many other bug zappers and eliminators are noisy and obtrusive, Flylight is completely silent and packaged in a low-profile, tasteful, and easy-to-install aluminum unit.” Flylight comes in three different models, as well as two different color options — black and white. The deluxe model comes with two AC outlets and two USB ports to maximize outlet utility. Each Flylight comes with a replaceable UV Bulb (rated for approximately 3000 hours), three StickyTech Glue Card replacements (that last approximately 30 days each), and a one-year warranty on the device.

EARTHQUAKE VERSA ROTOTILLER/CULTIVATOR
A 21-inch front tine tiller, VERSA quickly turns into an 11-inch cultivator with simple, tool-less removal of its outer tines and shields. As a tiller, VERSA delivers the power to break new ground and prepare garden beds in the spring. The poly Tufflex side shields and outer tines are easily removed without tools, converting the unit from a full-size tiller into a narrow 11-inch-wide cultivator for controlling weeds, aerating soil between growing plants, and maintaining planting beds and crop rows in summer. In addition to quick and simple removal of side shields and adjustment of tine width from 21 to 16 or 11 inches, four unique features of the VERSA provide important advantages over other tillers: First, its right-sized, energy-efficient Viper 99cc engine gives VERSA plenty of power while saving gas and reducing operating costs. Second, with the profile of its engine, combined with a bronze gear drive transmission arranged horizontally instead of vertically, the VERSA offers the lowest center-of-gravity of any front-tine tiller for ground-hugging stability and control. Third, for optimal maneuverability, the VERSA has a tighter footprint than other tillers, allowing it to pivot and change direction within its own footprint. Fourth, the Tufflex poly side shields are an industry first in front tine tilling—not only easy to remove but tough and durable. They can take a beating from thrown rocks, sticks and other hard objects without getting dented or bent like metal shields, and they’re shaped to direct churned soil downward.
