Made of stainless steel and featuring PVC grips, the multinut plier from EuroTools provides V-shaped jaws to help contractors tighten small nuts and bolts. The plier's long jaws are designed to reach into tight or otherwise difficult spaces, and it requires no adjustments and can be used with one hand. It also can serve as a companion tool for holding down larger bolts and torquing down smaller ones.

Splice Tray System
Richco's Optical Fiber Splice Tray System protects and stores excess fiber and provides an environment in which splices can be made without damaging the fiber. The splice tray comes in two models: the plain-tray OFST-1-P and the managed-tray OFST-1-M, which has a dark fiber storage area. Each tray can be stacked with other models and covered with a lid (the OFST-1-L). A slot on one of the long sides allows for routing fiber from tray to tray; a splice holder and gripper (the OFSH-6-3.5) fits into the mounting holes to hold splice protectors, couplers, and fiber cables.

The Escalade 7500-12 SCSI feature set includes tag command queuing, scatter and gather, command reordering, parallel seek, and dynamic sector repair.
