Our company has recently developed a new line of innovative glues/adhesives designed to meet the needs of homeowners who often face instances of loose screws or fasteners within their daily lives. We need your help in creating a compelling name for the new product, which has the benefit of preventing metal screws and hardware around the house from loosening over time.

Homeowners all experience things like loose pot handles, loose drawer knobs or faucets, etc. The new adhesive represents an opportunity for homeowners to secure all these loose fasteners by placing a few drops directly onto the threads of screws or bolts. The product fills the gaps in the threads and then hardens securely bonding the metal fastener in place. In fact, over time we hope that homeowners would never want to use a screw or bolt without first applying our product.
