What is an Independent Keying Stretcher?

Like the Mechanical Stretcher, the Independent Keying stretcher utilizes Tite-Joint™ fasteners, only doubled up, with two (one on each side) for each corner. 

This system affords greater options for targeted keying while maintaining a stronger joint. 

Choose from a flat back continuous bevel profile; an L-shaped tongue and groove profile; or an L-shaped biscuit joint profile. Wood shims provide optimal keying.
