Stow and Deploy® Hardware Makes Installation Simple and Hurricane Preparation Fast
PlyFASTner Plus® features improvements to our original patented design that’s been protecting homes from hurricane damage for 20 years. PlyFASTner Plus uses our Stow & Deploy® anchoring system to simplify installation of hardware in advance and make it fast and easy for homeowners to prepare for an approaching hurricane. Protective caps are used to minimize the appearance of permanently installed hardware.
PlyFASTner Plus® system lets you place protective panels on your home in under a minute per window and door.

However, we came up with some installation hardware alternatives during development and are making these available to do-it-yourself homeowners and installers that may be interested.
