Klein offers reward for oldest pair of pliers

BY Ken Clark

Lincolnshire, Ill.-based Klein Tools is searching for the world’s oldest pair of Klein Side-Cutting Pliers. 

"Our customers are very loyal and some have tools that have been handed down from one generation to another," said channel sales manager Thomas Barton. "So, we thought it would be interesting to see exactly how long our pliers soldier on.” 

The winning pliers will be selected by Klein Tools’ engineering team based on the above requirements. The tool owner will receive $2,500 in cash and approximately $2,500 in new Klein Tools. All photo entries must be uploaded to the company’s website or mailed and postmarked by May 31, 2013.

Customers can see if their pliers are eligible by determining if their tool is the standard side-cutting type, bears the original Klein trademark and has ‘code markings’ that will be found inside the handle.

Stadium sheds Home Depot, adopts StubHub

BY Ken Clark

The stadium formerly known as The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., is now the StubHub Center.

The 125-acre stadium multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility is home of the Las Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA soccer teams of Major League Soccer. The Home Depot had naming rights for the facility since it opened 10 years ago, at a cost of $70 million for the 10-year period.

StubHub, the ticket-sales company, took over the deal as the retailer declined to renew. The price tag for StubHub’s naming rights deal was not disclosed.
