LEAVE UNSAFE LIGHTER FLUID AND MESSY CHARCOAL AT HOME Nothing puts a bigger damper on a tail- gating, camping or beach cookout than charcoal that refuses to light. And that's to say nothing of the added weight and filth lugging around bags of charcoal and bottles of lighter fluid adds to the mix. Just in time for the 2015 grilling season, theBox ® All-in-One Grilling Starter Box is designed to eliminate these frustrations with everything required to instantly get the party started – except the match. At just under four pounds, it can be carried with ease, without fear of a flam- mable explosion, chemical toxicity or unappealing, lingering lighter fluid taste. theBox burnable charcoal chimney will officially debut at the 2015 National Hardware Show at booth #5428. Anyone who has ever crossed their fingers while bringing a match to char- coal's surface knows just how frustrating it can be. theBox burnable, instant char- coal chimney is different. With theBox, patio, tailgate, beach and camping cook- outs get underway in minutes with five simple steps: open the top of theBox and remove the starting paper; place the start- ing paper under theBox; place the char- coal box with the paper inside the grill; light the starting paper through the lower side vents as indicated on the packag- ing; when the premium charcoal bri- quettes are ashed over – in about 15 to 20 minutes – the grill is ready for use. Voila! A perfect anywhere grilling environment with nothing additional required beyond a match. Unlike metal charcoal chimneys that get hot in the fire and then have to be stored, theBox just disappears. No more lugging around heavy bags of charcoal or having debris stain expensive sporting or beach attire. With a manufacturer's suggested retail cost of under $5.99, theBox is affordably priced for frequent use. Retailers looking for a cleaner, shelf- friendly way to sell charcoal can now dis- play charcoal on endcaps like single use firelogs. Store appearance and sales improve by simply moving the charcoal off the floor to an eye-level, impulse area near checkout lanes. Charcoal grilling is big business and growing. In the U.S.A. alone, six million new charcoal grills are purchased every year. Forty mil- lion households use a charcoal grill, and the average griller cooks out 27 times a year. "Grab theBOX and Go" could soon be the new way to talk about grilling. About theBox theBox patented, grilling starter kit was designed to simplify outdoor grilling. Lightweight, cleaner and easier to use than other charcoal grilling options, theBox is ideal for tailgating, camping, the beach and even the backyard patio. The all-in-one burnable charcoal chim- ney, it contains everything needed (except the match) to strike up a perfect grilling environment anywhere, anytime.

H a r d w a r e & H o u s e w a r e s R e v i e w W e d n e s d a y, M a y 6 , 2 0 1 5 2 6 GET A GRIP WITH GORILLA GRIPPER The Gorilla Gripper ® is a unique con- struction hand tool that allows one person to carry heavy sheet goods such as plywood, dry- wall, particleboard, MDF, melamine, doors and sheet metal, from the top, with the great- est of ease and with much less strain and greatly reduced risk of injury to the back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. The Gripper works by self-clamping onto the top of the panel, creating a sturdy temporary handle for the person who is car- rying it. It allows the user to lift and move such materials with one arm and a straight back, eliminating the requirement of bend- ing over to get under the bottom, thus avoiding the torqued back and the aches and pains that are far too familiar to con- struction workers and do-it-yourselfers. The Gorilla Gripper is made in the U.S.A., constructed of aircraft aluminum. There are rubber gripping pads on both plates that protect the surfaces of the dry- wall, plywood or other sheet materials and panels from being damaged or marred. Three models cover the following panel thickness ranges: Gorilla Gripper 'GP'... 0 to 3/4" (0 – 21mm); Gorilla Gripper 'Contractor'... 3/8" to 1-1/8" (9mm – 29mm); Gorilla 'Door' Gripper'... 1-1/4" to 2" (31mm to 52mm). There's just nothing like the Gorilla Gripper, and the company is now intro- ducing the brand new, amazingly rugged and fully functional but lower-cost 'Grip & Go' model. Its gripping plates are made of rock-hard glass-filled nylon, lined with rubberized non-marring grip- ping pads. It accommodates all sheet goods and panels from paper-thin to a full 3/4 inch. You'll be impressed! Visit Gorilla Gripper at booth #37064. For more information, go to www.gorilla gripper.com, email jimcole@gorilla gripper.com, or call 800.423.5008.
