On the show floor: new products at NHS

LAS VEGAS, Nev. ― Individual companies that presented at the recent National Hardware Show in Las Vegas offered an insight into trends and product innovation that help drive the industry. On the show floor, new products were in abundance, driven by technology advances in categories such as lighting, power tools, space saving, and even wood panelling.

HARDLINES talked with QualityCraft about the big push it was giving to two segments of its business, while Worx was demonstrating its latest battery system, which utilizes a 20-volt battery, or power module. Estwing featured a series of reinforced mallets and sledges, while Heath had new bird feeders, DynaTrap introduced another amazing bug zapper, and M-D Building Products explained how the Climaloc brands are being integrated into its own product lines.
