Innovative Products

Just a small sampling of the hundreds of thousands of products you’ll see at the show

With more than 250,000 products appearing at the show, it’s hard to pick just a few of them to highlight. Here are a few that should make quite a splash:
Hot on the heels of the innovative Paint Brush Cover by Likwid Concepts LLC comes the Roller Cover, a plastic case that firmly snaps around the handle of wet paint rollers for simple storage until the next use. No need to take the sleeve off the roller — and no more wrapping messy paint rollers in plastic bags.
From the files of “Why has no one thought of this before?” comes HopperTopper Inc.’s HopperTopper, a funnel that simplifies dumping yard clippings into a bag. It’s good for grass, leaves and other yard waste, and the bag even stays open under windy conditions.
Danish lighting manufacturer e3light Inc. will be introducing the Plumen 002, an energy-efficient light bulb that is designed to be on display rather than hidden from view. Unlike its predecessor, with its twisting, tangled glass tubes, the Plumen 002 more closely resembles the incandescent bulbs Americans are used to.
From Trevconn Enterprises, the EZ-Door can modernize flat-panel doors at a fraction of the cost of door replacements. EZ-Door’s self-adhering frames create the look of an expensive raised-panel door in minutes. No measuring, no tools needed — and made in the U.S.A.
Channellock Inc. will be introducing a line of screwdrivers and nut drivers that feature four-flute, professionally styled acetate handles and polished-chrome shafts with blasted tips, made entirely in the U.S.A.
The Aegis safe is a trendy new safe that matches home and office d├ęcor while offering high security and fire resistance. It is produced by Sun Safes, a major safe manufacturer from the Republic of South Korea.
Chinese manufacturer Yangdong General Cutlery Enterprises Co. Ltd. specializes in stainless steel pocketknives, multi-tools, kitchen knives and kitchenware. The company’s stainless steel multi-tools feature spring-loaded tools and LED lights.
La Hacienda, a UK-based company that specializes in stylish chimeneas and firepits, is introducing a new range of quirky metal animals and birds to its line. Realistic and highly detailed, these metal animals will add fun to your customers’ outdoor living spaces.
