Top-out tabs for Finish Trim

Permatab was our first solution to the problem of top panel pop-outs. This aluminum fastener is placed onto the last cut panel, crimped onto the vinyl with a Malco SL1 snap lock punch, a Malco SL2 snap lock punch or a Retterer Permatab Crimper; then locked into finish trim (still trim). Permatab forms a permanent lock and allows the panel to float as needed. This excellent aluminum locking device will solve the problem of top panel pop-outs.
