St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M has created the Polygun AE II hot-melt applicator, which crams the power of a high-volume industrial system into a 20-ounce, self-contained power tool. According to 3M, warm-up is only three minutes and adhesive flows at four pounds per hour, while the 250-watt positive temperature coefficient system maintains 400 degrees Fahrenheit for application and bonding consistency all day. In addition, a built-in stand keeps the applicator upright, stable and ready to grip and the positive check valve nozzle minimizes messy drips, according to the company. 

Screen Door Provides Protection from Bugs
Wolf & Moon Products of Cambria, Calif., has designed the bug off instant screen, a magnetic screen door which takes just minutes to install and will not damage any door frame. Besides providing protection from insects, the bug off screen door offers hands-free entry and exit for both people and pets. Center and bottom magnets allow a person to walk through the screen with his hands full, with the screen automatically snapping closed behind him. In addition, the screen can be moved from door to door, taken to vacation homes, and can be installed in apartments, condominiums and rentals where standard screen doors are often not permitted.
