Omni Cubed Inc., Placerville, Calif., offers the Multi-Seam Expansion Kit for the Automatic Stealth Seamer™, including two seam-setter units with 8" cups (with covers), storage case, four vacuum-cup thumb-pump plungers, and extension tubing (15') with adapters. The kit enables installers to join and level two seams simultaneously (up to 15’ apart) or link all four units together for one large seam, all with the use of one vacuum pump. The expansion kit seam setters feature eight leveling points which provide total control along the entire seam to eliminate the unevenness caused by crowned countertops. Countertop seams also easily open and close by use of a smooth-turning knurled roller, and the working area at the seam is open and accessible with the units in place.
