Edison, NJ, December 15, 2010 --( Starborn Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fasteners and related products for the building industry, has introduced the new SMART-BIT[R] PRO PLUG[R] System to greatly simplify and enhance the beauty of wood plug installations performed within decking, wide plank flooring and woodworking projects.

"Plugging has been used in building and woodworking for hundreds of years to cover and protect the heads of screws as well as define serious craftsmanship," says Paul Gertner, President of Starborn Industries. "However, the process can be time-consuming and tedious. The new SMART-BIT PRO PLUG System was specifically developed to make plugging quicker and easier. It was also engineered by our research team to perfectly install plugs in more than 20 species of decking, flooring and wood, while delivering superior results, plug after plug. In timed trials, it also reduced the time to plug by more than half."

The PRO PLUG[TM] System was introduced by Starborn Industries as an ideal solution for plank floor installers and deck builders desiring to repair squeaky floors or combine the proven strength of face screwing with the aesthetics of hidden side-clip systems. Sold separately, the system includes the:

--PRO PLUG Tool for Wood, which creates a screw hole and countersink that is perfectly matched to the PRO PLUG fasteners and plugs

--PRO PLUG Plug & Fastener Kit, which comes complete with wood plugs, screws, driver bit(s) and the company's patent pending PRO PLUG Glue Nozzle that coats the side of the hole where the glue is needed
