The Danik Hook, an amazingly simple and easy to use tool to quickly tie-down anything, wins over the new product testers of “The Hardware Connection” magazine.
POMONA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 11, 2018
The Danik Hook, an amazingly simple and easy to use tool to quickly tie-down anything, wins over the new product testers of “The Hardware Connection” magazine.
The review comes just in time for independent hardware stores to stock something new for the holidays and offer the Danik Hook as a unique gift and handy tool that everyone can use.
The Hardware Connection Founder/Principal, Tom Chasteen, found out why the Danik Hook was the National Hardware show’s 2017 winner of its prestigious Retailers’ Choice Award for outstanding and innovative design of consumer products.
In his November products review column, “From Tom’s Shop,” Chasteen wrote “what makes the Danik Hook products so unique and what all of our testers mentioned in their comments was the quality and finish.”
Those words were justification for the years of design testing by Daniel Austin, the inventor of the Danik Hook product line.
“It’s not cheap stuff,” said Austin. “My number one effort has always been quality. And once someone gets a Danik Hook in their hands, they see the quality.”
Austin also thanks The Hardware Connection magazine for giving independent hardware store owners and managers a reason to stick their necks out by offering a new product such as Danik Hook.
The magazine noted, “Danik Hook has developed three unique products that may fit into stores that have a strong marine, sporting goods or automotive merchandise mix.”
As a result of the article, Austin says he has already received purchase orders from independents in Michigan and Nevada.
“From Tom’s Shop” reviewed the stainless steel Danik Hook for big jobs. It’s a hassle-free way to attach a 3/8 to 5/8 inch diameter anchor rope line to secure anything up to 8,000 pounds, such as a small yacht. It sells for $39.95.
The testers also tried out the smaller thermoplastic, non-scratching Danik Hook which handles any 3/8 to 7/16 diameter line for anything up to 500 pounds, such as a leaning Christmas tree. It goes for $20.95.
They also put the new Danik Hook Adjustable Bungee cord through the ropes.
The versatile Adjustable Bungee lets anyone easily and quickly adjust and secure a single length of the elastic cord from six to 48 inches unstretched. It comes with one Danik Hook Mini adjustable universal line length hook for $13.95.
The testers used the Danik Hook products to adjust boat fenders, anchor buoys and even tie-down an airplane on the tarmac.
The article stated the testers all agreed the Danik Hooks easily and effectively clamp down on lines with rigid gripping edges that prevent slippage without fraying ropes or bungee cords.
Austin said he got a kick out of reading the fun The Hardware Connection magazine testers had in coming up with different applications for the Danik Hook. “There are some pretty creative people out there.”
If consumers don’t see a local retail outlet near them on DanikHook.com, the product line is also carried on the websites of several national retailers, including Amazon, Bass Pro Shops, Home Depot, Overton’s, Sears, and Walmart.
All Danik Hooks carry a one year warranty.
Danik Hook maintains its own manufacturing facility in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California. http://www.danikhook.com
Austin, an avid boater and journeyman machinist, made the first Danik Hook prototype in 2007 out of his desire to increase his time skiing on the Colorado River. He then modified the prototype to make it more functional and adaptable to an array of boats. Once he was happy with the anchor line hook’s design, he named it after his daughters Danie and Nikki.

Retail shipping chain to promote children’s literacy with a spectacular 37-foot float at the iconic parade
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In celebration of children’s literacy, The UPS Store, Inc. will participate in the 2019 Tournament of Roses^® Rose Parade on Jan. 1, 2019 in Pasadena, California. The float, titled "Books Keep Us On Our Toes,” aims to inspire people to experience life through the joy of reading. The parade float also highlights the need to extend children’s literacy in communities throughout the United States.
The UPS Store, Inc.’s participation in the parade is the culmination of the annual Toys for Tots^® Literacy Program, developed by The UPS Store, Inc. and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The literacy program, which is celebrating its 10^th anniversary, provides books and educational resources to underserved communities.
“The Rose Parade presents a unique opportunity for The UPS Store to show its ongoing commitment to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program," said Tim Davis, president of The UPS Store, Inc. "We are proud to mark 10 years of sharing the excitement, wonder and importance of literacy with children and their families across the country.”
Built by Fiesta Parade Floats, The UPS Store, Inc.^’s float will glide down the iconic 5 ½ mile stretch of Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. At 37 feet tall and 55 feet long, this show-stopping float will display more than 110,000 flowers and use a state-of-the-art hydraulic system.
This year’s fun-loving float concept features Olive the Ostrich, an aspiring ballerina with dreams to star in “Swan Lake.” Olive acknowledges her species may not be the traditional choice for the role, so she prepares by reading books on ballet while listening to Tchaikovsky’s famous music on an old-fashioned gramophone.
The pink ostrich is outfitted with an elegant costume and meticulously constructed with 30,000 pale pink Mizuky carnations and 40,000 white dendrobium orchids, among other ornate floral varieties.
"The Rose Parade provides a unique and exciting opportunity to present the magnificence of floral art," said Tim Estes, president of Fiesta Parade Floats. "I’m thrilled to collaborate with The UPS Store in realizing this remarkable vision in support of children’s literacy.”
After the parade, spectators can view the float up close through Jan. 2, 2019. The UPS Store team will hand out 10,000 children’s books, many of which were donated by Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education, and media company, to parade-goers and post-event attendees.
Through its 5,000 plus retail locations in North America, The UPS Store network has raised more than $4 million dollars and distributed nearly 39 million books to help children thrive since the Toys for Tots Literacy Program launched. The program remains necessary as literacy disparities between socioeconomic groups in the United States persist. According to the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report , households with an income of $35,000 and under own an average of 69 children’s books, compared to 127 books in households with incomes higher than $100,000. Each locally owned and operated The UPS Store^® location is fundamental to the success of the program and will continue collecting donations through the end of the year.
Don't miss your chance to see The UPS Store float, ""Books Keep Us On Our Toes," in the 130th Rose Parade at 8:00 a.m. PST on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 on NBC.

Crowley Maritime Corp. awarded four U.S. Merchant Marine Academy cadets with 2018 Thomas B. Crowley Memorial Scholarships during the Containerization and Intermodal Institute’s Connie Awards luncheon today in Newark, N.J.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) December 11, 2018
Crowley Maritime Corp. awarded four U.S. Merchant Marine Academy cadets with 2018 Thomas B. Crowley Memorial Scholarships during the Containerization and Intermodal Institute’s Connie Awards luncheon Monday in Newark, N.J.
Jenny Johnson, Crowley’s manager of marine recruiting, presented the scholarships, which were awarded to the cadets based on academic performance, financial need and interest in pursuing careers at sea.
Recipient Michael Bell, second-class midshipman, is studying marine engineering systems. A native of Broadlands, Va., Bell sailed during his year at sea as an engine cadet on the Crowley-managed ships: S.S. Horizon Enterprise, MV Ocean Freedom and S.S. Wright. A member of the USMMA basketball team and the school’s Investment Club, Bell plans to have a career sailing as a licensed mariner or working in a shipyard.
Charles B. Hughes, a senior midshipman is studying marine engineering and shipyard management. He is president of the school’s Class of 2019 and co-captain of the men’s lacrosse team. He has sailed aboard the Intermarine heavy lift vessel Ocean Grand managed by Crowley for the Military Sealift Command (MSC). The native of Baltimore, Md., intends to pursue a maritime career after graduation.
William Quigley, a second-class midshipman from Trumbull, Conn., is majoring in maritime logistics and security. During his sea-year terms, he sailed on the Crowley-managed Washington Express as well as the USNS Tippecanoe and USNS Comfort. A member of the basketball team, he studied maritime intelligence during a summer term at the Institute of World Politics.
William Wood, a senior midshipman from Budd Lake, N.J., is majoring in maritime logistics and security. During his sea year, he served on the Crowley-managed tanker Empire State, the USNS Rappahannock, and the Ocean Grand. After graduating in 2019, he plans to serve in the U.S. tanker fleet.
Also, formally recognized during the luncheon was Benjamin Starr, a senior midshipman who was awarded a 2017 Crowley scholarship but could not attend last year’s Connie Awards luncheon because he was at sea. A native of Phoenix, Ariz., he is studying maritime logistics and security. He has sailed aboard vessels for MSC, Matson and Overseas Shipholding Group. Upon graduation, he intends to sail commercially as a third mate and serve as an ensign in the Strategic Sealift Officer Program of the U.S. Navy Reserve.
USMMA was dedicated in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to train U.S. citizens for service as officers in the U.S. merchant fleet. Operated by the Maritime Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the academy has produced more than 20,000 graduates who serve the nation in the maritime industry, both at sea and ashore, and in the armed forces.
Helping to develop the next generation of U.S. merchant mariners is of vital importance to Crowley, the maritime industry and the nation at large. The merchant marine primarily transports cargo and passengers during peacetime. In times of war, the merchant marine can be an auxiliary to the U.S. Navy, and can be called upon to deliver military personnel and materiel for the Department of Defense.
Since 1984, Crowley has provided more than $3 million dollars in scholarship funding for more than 1,000 students. The company has also donated more than $2 million over the years to support other educational programs. In 1994, Chairman and CEO Tom Crowley Jr., established the Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship Program in honor of his father, who led the company to extraordinary heights before passing away in 1994. The company continues to give scholarship dollars to deserving students in the U.S., Alaska and Puerto Rico. In 2006, the program was expanded to Central America and to date, has provided financial assistance to dozens of students in that region. To learn more about the Thomas B. Crowley Sr. Memorial Scholarship program, visit http://www.crowley.com/scholarships

Jensen Maritime, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering subsidiary, has been honored for the third consecutive year by WorkBoat magazine with two Significant Boat Awards. WorkBoat only issues 10 Significant Boat Awards each year.
NEW ORLEANS (PRWEB) December 11, 2018
Jensen Maritime, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering subsidiary, has been honored for the third consecutive year by WorkBoat magazine with two Significant Boat Awards. WorkBoat only issues 10 Significant Boat Awards each year. The first was given for Jensen’s designs of expedition cruise boats National Geographic Quest and National Geographic Venture, owned by Lindblad Expeditions Holdings, Inc., of New York, N.Y. The second was for the company’s design of ship-assist and escort tug Rosemary McAllister, owned by McAllister Towing and Transportation Co.
For the two 100-person expedition cruise boats, Jensen provided detailed design and production engineering services. The company also used 3D modeling allowing Lindblad Expeditions the opportunity to confirm the 238-foot vessel’s layout, maintenance envelopes and operational access prior to construction. This meant that all the details of the structural, electrical, mechanical and HVAC systems of the vessel were combined into one comprehensive, full-size 3D computer model, resulting in a virtual vessel that could be inspected early in the design process for safety, maintainability and constructability. Now fully constructed, the duo is operating tours between Baja, Costa Rica and Panama during the winter months and Southeast Alaska, Oregon, Washington and Canada during the summer months. The U.S.-flag, coastal cruise ships were built at the Nichols Brothers Boat Builders (NBBB) shipyard, in Freeland, Wash.
For the Rosemary McAllister Jensen provided detailed design services – including stability, structure and systems designs – for the ocean-going escort/rescue tugboat. The 100-foot by 40-foot escort tug is the 32nd ocean-going escort/rescue tugboat in the McAllister fleet, but is one of the first that is Tier IV, meaning it utilizes high-efficiency, catalytic after-treatment technology to reduce emissions. Powered by twin Z-drive propulsion units, the tug offers an approximate bollard pull of 90 short tons, making it suitable for offshore service, ship assist, tanker escort, maneuvering and docking. Rosemary McAllister has been Load Lined and Classed by the American Bureau of Shipping as +A1, Towing, Escort, +AMS, and FFV-1. The 12-knot, 6,770-horsepower tugboat was constructed by Eastern Shipbuilding Group, of Panama City, Fla.
“It’s been exciting to watch the Jensen team receive national recognition for innovative designs by WorkBoat for three years running,” said the company’s Bryan Nichols, director, business development. “We are proud to not only develop significant boats, such as our new Tier IV compliant series of tugboats, but also to lead the industry with full-service, in-house naval architecture and marine engineering services that help our customers achieve their goals. We thank WorkBoat for the awards and our clients for trusting us to deliver.”
Jensen’s new series of Tier IV-compliant, ship-assist tugboat designs are available now in 74-, 86-, 92-, 96-, 100-, 108- and 110-foot lengths. To learn more about these designs, click the above link.
WorkBoat has honored Jensen with Significant Boat awards for years. Last year’s awards were given for two different tugboat designs that yielded the Earl W. Redd, owned by Harley Marine Services Inc. of Seattle, and built by Diversified Marine Inc., in Portland, Ore.; and the Arkansas, Mardi Gras and South Carolina, owned by Crescent Towing and built by Steiner Shipyard, in Bayou La Batre, Ala. In 2016, WorkBoat awarded Jensen for the design of San Francisco Fireboat 3, owned by San Francisco Fire Department. Jensen was also awarded in 2013 for the design of Crowley’s 750 class articulated tug-barge (ATB) fleet and the Bob Franco tugboat, owned by Harley Marine; in 2012 for the design of Crowley’s ocean class tugboats; in 2009 for the design of Crowley’s Nachik and Sesok tugboats; and in 2008 for the design of the HandyOne class boat, owned by Great Lakes Towing, and for the design of barge TAGGATZ, owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

American-made hot sauce shared good food and stories with fans nationwide this football season.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (PRWEB) December 11, 2018
The General’s Hot Sauce celebrated the end of the inaugural year of Tactical Tales on December 8 at its annual Army-Navy tailgate.
Inspired by the small-batch hot sauce company that started as an idea hatched at the Army-Navy game in 2012, friends and families around the country shared good stories and good food at college football tailgates throughout the season.
“Tailgates bring people together, and that’s what our product is all about,” said Dan Ballister, founder and CEO of Smoke Hall Foods. “We want The General to be a part of your family and friend group. We want to be there to help you to create those infamous tailgate stories."
Tactical Tales continues The General’s mission of providing high-quality hot sauce that has a greater purpose. Since its founding, a meaningful portion of the profits from all of The General’s sales goes toward supporting the military community.
“From the beginning, we set out to do everything the right way,” said Ballister. “We’re committed to being a zero-waste company. We donate to charities that help veterans and active duty servicemembers. And we make darn good hot sauce.”
Those priorities were on full display at the Third Annual Army-Navy Tailgate hosted by The General’s Hot Sauce on Saturday. Guests learned more about the company and sampled recipes that highlighted all four hot sauce flavors: bestselling Dead Red, power-packed Shock and Awe, limited-edition Marine Green, and the recently released Danger Close, which is a blend of red cayenne and orange habanero peppers. Additionally, an ammo can circulated around the tailgate to collect donations for the Veteran Golf Association and Boulder Crest Retreat—two of The General’s nonprofit partners.
“America’s Game” marked the end of a Tactical Tales season that traveled coast to coast, beginning in Columbia, S.C., where a former University of South Carolina mascot hosted a party in one of the legendary Cock-a-booses. From there, the floating party moved to LSU in Baton Rouge just down the road from the Louisiana farms that grow all of The General’s peppers. Each sauce flavor is all-natural and contains at least 85 percent pepper.
Moving north, Tactical Tales arrived in West Lafayette, Ind. to spend time with fraternity brothers at Purdue University for their annual tailgate. To the attending veterans and Purdue fans, there was nothing sweeter than reminiscing about good times with old friends.
Veterans and active duty servicemembers were present at all of The General’s tailgates. The company never loses sight of its larger purpose. Since 2016, The General is responsible for more than $155,000 in donations to several organizations that support the military community including Boot Campaign, The Mission Continues, The Brendan Looney Foundation, Paws4Vets and TD Foundation. Customers even have the opportunity to purchase gift boxes that donate directly to one of The General's nonprofit partners.
“We created this company to serve those that have served us,” Ballister said. “We exist to create jobs for veterans and to donate an impactful amount to organizations that support the military community.”
The sauce itself is a constant reminder of sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes. Each flavor comes in The General’s iconic grenade bottle. Fans at the University of Maryland thought it drew connections to the battle on the field.
“Every gameday we always came together for the tailgate—rain, shine, win, or lose,” said Erin Canada, wife of Maryland Interim Head Coach Matt Canada. “Just like Matt always says, ‘forget everybody but us.’ We lived this out through our tailgates.”
Other 2018 Tactical Tales stops included UCLA, Utah, Oklahoma, NC State, Auburn, Alabama, Penn State, and Clemson. At each school, storytelling was a major component because that’s what Ballister thinks unites us all, and he wants The General to bring people together.
“We are a great sauce for the greater good,” he said. “It’s not a promotion. It’s not a temporary marketing program. It’s not a division of the company. It IS the company.” Reported by PRWeb 11 hours ago.
