Outlaw Fasteners honored by tool mag
Charlotte, N.C.-based fastener design and distribution company Outlaw Fasteners is a recipient of a 2013 Pro Tool Innovation Award.
The recognition comes less than two-weeks after Outlaw introduced its new screw product on Kickstarter. The new screw design is powered by the UniGrip Drive System and signifies the biggest innovation in screw and drive technology in more than 80 years.
“We are proud to have received this award and to have been recognized for our engineering achievements in the fastener industry. Outlaw Screws will relieve much of the aggravation and problems associated with screws of the past,” said Outlaw marketing director Ron Elmore.
The tiered-hexagonal design of the product described as “The World’s Best Deck Screw” features up to 18 points of contact with the UniGrip bit — 14 more points than a traditional Philips screw. The numerous points of contact create the highest torque to driver ratio of any screw, according to the company.
The product also has a single bit that will work on screw sizes from 5/64 in. to 1/2 in. in diameter.
Sears showcases outdoor living at NYC festival
Sears and Shop Your Way will be in attendance at the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, presented by Food & Wine this Oct. 18-20.
The retailer will be showcasing patio furniture, grills and entertainment with Sears designer and TV personality Ty Pennington.
"I’m all about outdoor entertaining in style," Pennington said. "So join me at the Sears lounge where you can kick back in style or try your hand at bag toss, table tennis and billiards."
Sears will be overseeing three events, including the Blue Moon Burger Bash hosted by Rachael Ray, the Jets + Chefs Ultimate Tailgate hosted by Joe Namath and Mario Batali, and Ronzoni’s La Sagra Sunday Slices, hosted by Anne Burrell and Adam Richman.
"We’re pleased to expand our presence at the 2013 Festival after serving as the exclusive grill and outdoor furniture provider at last year’s Blue Moon Burger Bash," said James Alt, SVP and president, seasonal and outdoor living, Sears Holdings. "The energetic yet refined environment, filled with thousands of attendees and culinary influencers, is the perfect venue to display our newly-redesigned Ty Pennington Sunset Beach Collection of patio furniture, launch our 2014 line of Kenmore Elite grills and showcase recreational must-haves."
