In this example, the first four characters describe the item, the second
sequence indicates the size of the item (if applicable), and the third sequence
indicates color (if applicable).
The key uses the first two letters of the first and second word (if
applicable), of that type or product:
whas – wheel assembly
snho – snap hook
poco – pool cover
anba – anchor base
pu – pump
wa – washer

Then the key uses the size of the item to differentiate between types of
screws, anchors, etc. (if applicable):
1/2x4 – ½"x 4"
¼ – ¼"
#4 - #4 size
10x.5 – 10"x.5"
12x1 – 12"x1"
Third, the key indicates the color or type of material:
FG – forest green
BR - Brass
BL - Black
