I have a home repair catalog that sells metal braces to be slipped
between the floorboards and the supporting joist of a squeaky floor to
stop the squeaking. They are toe-nailed into both the joist as well
as the floorboard, and in appearance they resemble the letter "F."
Has anyone used these, and do they work? Thanks.
I read about "baby powder".

No, no. This is about the fifth year I've posted on this subject, and
I found the anti-squeak floor braces in a catalog and on a website
called www.improvementscatalog.com. The braces are extremely

What's wrong with a squeaking floor? I live, for the first time in a
relatively old (125 years) house. The first couple of nights the squaks,
creaks, groans etc. made my sleep fitful. Now I only wake up at an extremely
loud (my security alarm) noise or something, even a very quiet something, out
of the ordinary. A squeaking floor is of a piece with an undone lock of hair,
etc. as opposed to hair or clothes plastered or cinched in place:
A sweet disorder in the dress

Man, I've often quoted poetry on newsgroups, but *NEVER* on
alt.home.repair! Oh, wait-- 'Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May/Old
Time Is Still A-Flying...'" And for those of us whose floors squeak
like the galley of a clipper ship, gathering rosebuds comes hard,
because we're so tired from being awoken by the footsteps of others in
the night... :)
