H a r d w a r e & H o u s e w a r e s R e v i e w 3 1 Tu e s d a y, M a y 5 , 2 0 1 5 ONCE A DAY ALL BREED POTTY PADS FROM MCAIRLAID'S McAirlaid's, Inc. has announced the world- wide introduction of Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads, a super absorbent all breed potty pad aimed at elevating the product quality of the pet pad industry to new lev- els. Once A Day is Made in the U.S.A. in McAirlaid's Rocky Mount, Va. facility. Consumers have long expressed dis- satisfaction with the current training pad offerings. Complaints have ranged from pad leakage, failure to hold fluids, urine soaking through the liner onto the floor leaving the floors wet and contaminated with urine and bacteria, the need to use multiple pads over the course of the day, and poor pad integrity. These represent just some of the complaints that consumers have expressed. With the introduction of Once A Day, McAirlaid's has developed a product that addresses each one of these significant consumer complaints. Performance and Pricing From 2012 to 2013, the dollar volume of the pet category has exploded with growth over 20 percent. Consumers have proven time and time again that they demand better performing products and are comfortable paying a higher retail for products that perform and provide a healthier environment for their family and their four legged family members. Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads have been created using the latest tech- nology. Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads utilize the SuperCore ® absorbency which is proven to last all day with no leaks, guaranteed. Let the experts at leak protec- tion make you and your pet happy today. One pad lasts all day for a 'Once A Day' application, vs. multiple daily changes of the competition. Superior absorbency and moisture wick- ing, side leakage protection, and superior dryness means no wet paws. Once A Day has a bonded core, no fracturing or clumping, and is odor free. Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads also offers a money back guarantee. Environmentally Friendly Once A Day's superior product quality allows the consumer to use a single pad over the course of the day, resulting in a significant reduction in the number of pet pads entering landfills. Availability Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads will be available in Shaw's Supermarkets begin- ning in April 2015. Additionally, all major E-commerce websites will have Once A Day All Breed Potty Pads available by the end of May 2015. Additional distribution is being gained on a monthly basis.

C & H INNOVATIONS INTRODUCES TRIKLEENER PRESSURE WASHER ATTACHMENT FOR FLAT SURFACES C & H Innovations has developed a heavy duty, extremely flexible attach- ment for pressure washers for cleaning flat surfaces out of necessity. It was tak- ing almost two weeks to thoroughly clean old brick sidewalks and driveways at one of the inventor's homes in Alabama, and it was really wearing on Marty Cooper's (primary inventor) back and legs. "It was killing my legs and back, and was not efficient at all," said Marty, so he started trying to come up with a better solution, and did he ever! The TRIK- LEENER is a patented product in full production mode and has been promoted online only. Although it has already sold over 5,000, the company is now ready to expand retail distribution. So why is that big news? First, research shows that 57 percent of all home pressure wash- er projects involve cleaning a flat surface, and, secondly, there are millions of pressure washers already owned in the U.S.A. today. Perhaps just as importantly, there is no good alternative between a cheap, lightweight aluminum, inflexible cleaner and an expensive, heavy, circular cleaner. Now there is. Even though the TRIKLEENER is commercial grade, it is priced to sell at approximately $99 retail, and offers a high quality product for the typical consumer. It is packaged in full color boxes with plenty of sales features, and only requires either 10 inches or 20 inches, depend- ing on space available. The company is finding that it sells great even in stores that do not sell pressure washers, because of the huge inventory of existing washers already in the marketplace.

The panel can easily slip in the process, or accidentally bump into the blade, causing the board to kick back at the operator. The process of bending, twisting and lift- ing the panel can easily 'throw out' the back. The LegUp™ Panel-Lift Table Saw Accessory eliminates all those possibili- ties by using leverage to get the panel up onto the saw table in a simple, controlled manner. The LegUp is a steel 'leg' which mounts quickly and easily to the edge of your table saw or to the fence rail. That 'leg' has a 'foot' or 'hook' at the bottom that sits just a couple of inches above the floor. The bottom edge of the wood sheet is placed onto the foot. The LegUp serves as a fulcrum with a suffi- cient portion of a panel rising above the pivot point to make it virtually effortless to rotate or 'flip' that panel onto the top of the saw table with the action and ease of a seesaw. Then, as the operator slides the panel towards the saw fence, the LegUp drops down, returning to its vertical position, ready for the next panel. It's simple and it works very well; it saves the back, neck, hands and arms, and it lasts forever! A 34-second demo video is available at www.gorillagripper.com. The LegUp was developed by the same people who created the Gorilla Gripper ® panel carrier for carrying sheet goods from the top. It's one more unique, rugged, labor-saving, back-saving product from Landon Innovations. To learn more, visit booth #37064.

DETER PEST BIRDS, PREVENT COSTLY DAMAGE WITH BIRD SPIKES As a home and garden outlet or hardware store owner or manager, a growing num- ber of customers will seek your advice in solving their bird pest problem. The buildup of bird droppings can not only deface property, but lead to significant and costly damage. The acid in bird drop- pings can eat into metal, plastic and even stone. Bird droppings also pose a health hazard, as they contain bacteria which can carry serious diseases such as histoplas- mosis. There's also the liability of slip- and-fall hazards created by bird drop- pings. All told, pest birds can significant- ly contribute to a property's cleanup and repair costs. The solution? Bird spikes. Stainless Steel Bird Spikes Available in two-foot sections, with up to 40 spikes per foot, Stainless Steel Bird Spikes come in 1-, 3-, 5- and 8-inch splay widths to provide increasingly wider areas of protection – up to 10 inches wide. They feature a patented "bend-and-crush" design, which ensures the spikes remain firmly embedded in an unbreakable UV- protected polycarbonate base. This flexible base bends a full 360 degrees, so it can eas- ily "follow" a variety of curved surfaces. Made in the U.S.A, Stainless Steel Bird Spikes come with a 10-year guarantee. Plastic Bird Spikes Economical and tough, Plastic Bird Spikes come in three splay widths: 3-, 5- and 7-inch to protect surfaces up to 9 inch- es wide. Fabricated of high-strength, unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate plastic, the spikes can endure extreme temperatures from - 200° F to +310° F (-128° C to +154° C). This makes them ideal for various appli- cations. Plastic spikes come in brick red, white, crystal clear, light grey, brown, black and tan to blend in with their back- ground. Made in the U.S.A., Plastic Bird Spikes come with a five-year guarantee. Which Bird Spike is Right for Your Customers? Stainless Steel Bird Spikes last the longest and are ideal for marine applica- tions. Plastic Bird Spikes combine econo- my with color choice, and won't interfere with RF transmissions/receptions if they are installed near antennas. Once the right type of spike has been selected for a cus- tomer's application, you'll need to advise the customer on the right size. This is accomplished by simply measuring the linear footage and width of the area to be covered, then choosing the right spike for your customer's needs. Ledges 2 to 4 inches in width have a suggested spike width of 3 inches. Ledges 5 to 7 inches have a suggested spike width of 5 inches. Ledges 8 to 10 inches have a suggested spike width of 8 inches. Easy to Install All Bird Spikes are designed for easy installation using screws, glue or tie downs. Bird B Gone ® is one of the world's largest manufacturers and distributors of bird control products, providing effective and humane solutions. It provides advice, training and installation services for those who need help with these and other bird control measures. Visit Bird B Gone at booth #14115.
