New Product

Braxton-Bragg has also introduced a new product. The new Hercules® Universal Sink Harness is produced exclusively for Braxton-Bragg, and it can reduce undermount sink installation to minutes. Since there is no need for temporary bracing to hold caulk or adhesive while it dries, it also means there is no costly return visit, saving the installer time and money. Instead of fastening directly to expensive stone countertops, the Universal Sink Harness Kit fastens to the cabinet itself, so the weight is supported by the cabinet instead of by the weakest part of the countertop: the sink cutout. This system will work with any undermount sink shape -- single or double bowl, cast iron, steel or ceramic -- so there is no need to stock more than one type of installation product. The installer can even use the Universal Sink Harness to repair other failed sink installations.

"This is going to be one of the hot new products of 2010," said Rich Hassert, CEO of Braxton-Bragg LLC. "It will revolutionize the industry and probably make all other methods obsolete. We are selling it for $5 and the competitive products are about $30. I have seen a sink installation done with this product and it only took five minutes."

Braxton-Bragg is offering to send customers one complete kit for free. Contact a Braxton-Bragg sales representative for more information. And check out the Universal Sink Harness demo at the company's new Web site: www.braxtonbragg.com.
