Quick ChangeNo more missing pieces to keep up with. IVB fasteners are self contained. They screw out of the housing and into your stock material when you need them and screw back into the flush mounted IVB housing when you don't, completely out of the way. Choose our patented Invert-a-Bolt™ fasteners and our ZipFixture™ quick change system and never have to find the 'other part' to your system again.
