ANNIVERSARY SAFE FROM CANNON SAFE BENEFITS VETERANS The new 50th Anniversary Series safe celebrates Cannon Safe's 50-year story as a company that works to protect fami- lies' valuables by benefiting those who fight to protect American families. For each 50th Anniversary Series safe pur- chased in 2015, Cannon will donate $50 to Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA). "The U.S. Armed Forces work hard to protect our country, and Cannon Safe works hard to protect their valuables," said Steve Hoffa, President of Cannon Safe. "So we thought, 50 years, a 50-gun safe and a 50 dollar donation to HAVA would be a great way for Cannon to cel- ebrate its success as well as aid disabled soldiers as they transition back to their lives in the United States." The charcoal-colored 50th Anniversary Series safe features chrome accents as well as internal adjustable shelving, high-grade upholstery and an interior door organizer. With up to 50- gun capacity, the safe's exterior measures 59 inches high, 45 inches wide and 26 inches deep, and weighs 906 pounds. Key features of the 50th Anniversary Series safe include an exclusive dual- access EMP™ lock that offers immediate access of an electronic lock backed up by the assurance of a manual combination lock. Multi-directional LED lights acti- vate when the door opens for increased internal visibility. An internal media out- let is equipped with two 110 outlets, two USB ports and a RJ45 Ethernet connec- tion to safely keep computers, iPods, external hard drives, dehumidifiers and other electronics charged and connected to the Internet behind Cannon Safe secure doors without having to drill a hole into the back of the safe. It's made with 12-gauge steel con- struction, four-inch door thickness and patented Trulock™ internal hinges to provide strong, durable security of valuables. Thirteen four-inch locking bolts, compared to two- inch locking bolts used by com- petitors, combine with anti-pry tabs for added protection. A heat- activated door seal (triple fin intumescent) that expands up to 12 times its size when exposed to heat protects the contents and prevents smoke damage. It's Intertek-ETL fire rating verified, earning the most demanding protocol in the industry for fire validation to protect contents from a blaze. The 50th Anniversary safe has a 60-minute/1,200- degree rating. In addition to the 50th Anniversary Series safe, product expansion will also mark Cannon Safe's half-century success with the release of the Home Essentials™ Series safe collection and Cannon's biggest safe yet – the Armory ® 100.

It is the cul- mination of an innate knowledge of the slow-growing, dense wood native to cold New England climate and a lifetime of making memories around the fire with family and friends. For years, stumps would be placed in a big hole and covered up, leaving them to decompose, thus contaminating the local water supply. But after a generation of recycling and finding better ways to utilize this natural resource, the brothers discovered one more use. Stump Chunks was born one cold night when the brothers discovered how easy it was to start a fire using dried chunks of wood from old tree stumps. It sounded a little crazy to sell the product; it seemed too simple. But it worked so well that the brothers just had to share. What they found is that it's never about lighting the fire, everyone can do that. It's how quick you can get the fire going so you can start enjoying the fire. The brothers believe in this so strongly that you will find it on the back of the bag: "Step 3: OPEN BEVERAGE, PUT FEET UP, RELAX AND ENJOY." Completely green and self sustaining, Stump Chunks is 100 percent wood. It contains absolutely no chemi- cals or additives. The secret to this magic is in the stump itself. It just took some clever but chilly fellows to figure out how to unleash its potential. Stump Chunks is great for anyone who wants an easier, faster and environmentally safe way to light their wood stove, fire place, fire pit or light charcoal for grilling. This is a product that can be used and enjoyed year around. The outdoor grilling mar- ket is growing everyday as people are discovering the enhanced flavor of their food by cooking with charcoal or wood. With Stump Chunks you longer have that long wait to start cooking – you can be ready to go in less than five min- utes, again getting to Step 3 quicker. Visit Stump Chunks in the Outdoor Tailgate Section at booth TG379. For more infor- mation after the show, call 603.935.5405, email sales@stumpchunks.com or go to www.stumpchunks.com.
