Box cutters and utility knives are often underestimated as a threat because they are not a purpose built weapon such as a dagger or other fighting blade. However, several factors make them something to be aware of. They are cheap and widely available. They are very difficult to see, either concealed on a person or during the chaos of a fight. Some of them provide a very strong grip. The slashing strikes of these weapons produce a lot of blood as well as fear and panic.

InventHelp Inventors Design an Inconspicuous, Safer Knife Holder (DVR-550)

PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) September 18, 2014

“Keeping knives exposed on a kitchen counter can be unsightly, dangerous and space-consuming,” said one of two inventors from Littleton, Colo., “so we decided that there needed to be a way to keep them out of sight and out of the way until needed.”

He then created a prototype of the Hide-A-Knife, a holder that provides an inconspicuous, safer way to store kitchen knives. Not only does it keep them out of the way in order to prevent injuries, but it avoids unsightliness, saves counter space and utilizes otherwise wasted space under kitchen cabinets. It also eliminates the need for butcher blocks. The holder is compact, easy to use when a knife is needed, child-safe and producible in different sizes and materials.

The original design was submitted to the Denver office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-DVR-550, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.

Things Are Looking Up at Outwater with the Introduction of Many New Decorative Ceiling Panels

Bogota, NJ (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

Things are looking up at Outwater [Outwater Plastics Industries, Inc. + Architectural Products by Outwater, LLC] with the introduction of many new Decorative Ceiling Panels comprising a host of different materials, designs and colors to accommodate a wide range of residential and commercial applications.

Outwater has chosen to highlight those Decorative Ceiling Panels that acquired the most significant attention and positive feedback at the recent 2014 International Builder’s and Kitchen & Bath Shows.

1) Acrylic Ceiling Panels

The Summer Solstice and the phenomenon of the ensuing Midnight Sun, where the sun is visible for as long as 24 hours per day, only takes place for a finite period of time in the most northern and southern latitudes.

For those desiring random images of soft white clouds against a light blue sky with a bright, open airy ambiance in “perpetuity,” but who are otherwise either unable or unwilling to relocate to anywhere near the Arctic or Antarctic Circles, Outwater is pleased to introduce its new series of Acrylic Ceiling Panels.

Imagine not only having the year round opportunity to turn on the serenity and beauty of a magnificent Summer Sky at your fingertips, but also being able to fully enjoy it in the temperate, climate controlled interior surroundings of your home or office.

Offered as 2-ft. x 2-ft. panels, with six randomly mixed sky patterns, or 2-ft. x 4-ft. panels, with four randomly mixed sky patterns, Outwater’s Acrylic Ceiling Panels are designed for easy “drop in” use with standard 15/16-in. suspended ceiling channel grid systems.

An impervious, low maintenance and easy to clean surface renders Outwater’s Acrylic Ceiling Panels waterproof, mildew-resistant as well as germ and bacteria-free.

2) Stamped Steel Ceiling Panels

Think Green! Build Green! Save Green! Outwater has turned back the clock with its new offering of finely crafted, highly detailed tin-free, premium quality Stamped Steel Ceiling Panels.

Having combined the perfect mix of both texture and nostalgia with the timeless elegance and decorative grandeur of the past, Outwater’s Stamped Steel Ceiling Panels enliven contemporary and traditional fashions alike by providing charm and beauty to any room with a variety of historically accurate Victorian to Art Deco period inspired designs from which to choose.

Manufactured of lightweight 30 gauge, .010-in. thick chromium treated tin-free steel comprising 30% recycled materials, Outwater’s Stamped Ceiling Panels are available in 2-ft. x 2-ft. lay-in and 2-ft. x 4-ft. nail-up formats with complementary Filler Panels and 4-ft. Cornices for easy installation using traditional nail-up and suspension methods.

Outwater’s Stamped Steel Ceiling Panels are offered either uncoated or in an array of five different finishes. For additional authenticity, steel cone head nails are available for nail-up applications.

3) Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels

Outwater’s highly detailed, Class-A Fire Rated Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels not only enable a perfect, professional 2-ft. x 2-ft. and 2-ft. x 4-ft. glue-up or lay-in installation by anyone without their ever having had any prior experience in fabricating ceilings, they are available in a variety of different traditional and contemporary finishes to accommodate any décor.

Handled similarly to Outwater’s aforementioned Acrylic Ceiling Panels, Outwater’s Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels are designed to be installed over the exposed surface of one’s old, existing discolored and water stained ceiling panels.

Not only impact, chemical and scratch resistant, Outwater’s Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels can be easily cut with common household scissors, utility knives or razors for further customized fabrication to accept most lighting, ventilation, water sprinkler and surface mounted speaker systems.

When used with standard 15/16-in. suspended ceiling channel grid systems, Outwater’s lightweight formed Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels can be effortlessly “dropped” into ceiling grids using just hold down clips, or, if being utilized to replace existing ceiling panels, they can be easily installed leaving the old panels intact for additional stability and thermal insulation without the need for hold down clips.

Because Outwater’s waterproof Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels are mildew-resistant as well as germ and bacteria-free, they never require any follow up maintenance, readily enabling their use in difficult to access applications.

Outwater also offers corresponding snap-on 15/16-in. suspended ceiling channel grid covers as a low cost alternative to replacing or repainting rusted, stained or deteriorated metal grids.

4) Versa Tile Ceiling Panels

As a result of great advancements in manufacturing technology in conjunction with lower production and materials costs, Outwater’s newly updated version of its original Versa Tile Ceiling Panels are practically indistinguishable from the look and feel of real plaster ceiling tiles.

Now offering even better quality than Outwater’s previous Versa Tile Ceiling Panels at 40% of their original cost, Outwater’s revolutionary, new line comprises lightweight, nonpolluting, thoroughly biodegradable rigid polyurethane that simply “drops in” to standard 15/16-in. suspended ceiling channel grid systems without the use of hold down clips, and as with Outwater’s Thermoplastic PVC Ceiling Panels, easily conforms to accept most lighting, ventilation and surface mounted speaker systems.

Like wood ceiling panels, Outwater’s Versa Tile Ceiling Panels are durable enough to be tooled and even refinished as desired. However, unlike ordinary gypsum and plaster ceiling tiles, Versa Tile Ceiling Panels won’t break, stain or chip.

Additionally, because Versa Tile Ceiling Panels are dimensionally stable as well as impermeable to moisture and insects, they require no maintenance, not only making them suitable for indoor or outdoor use, they are backed by a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.

Credit Card Knife: Review by Jordan Victors Exposes Ultra Compact Pocket Knife for Survivalists

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 03, 2014

The credit card knife, a new product released by preparation experts, designed to provide people with ultra-portable yet effective pocket knife has caught the attention of Jordan Victors, prompting and investigative review.

“The credit card knife takes the idea of a pocket knife to an entirely new level,” reports Victors. “These products makes it easy and affordable for every person to be prepared with a high quality knife—whether for emergencies or just convenience—that can literally fit in their wallet.”

The credit card knife sold by many different companies is essentially a foldout pocketknife that is the identical size and weight of a credit card. At just 2mm thick, the credit card knife is only 1/10th of the thickness of a traditional utility knife. At this size, the credit card knife can easily be stored in a wallet, purse, pocket, or backpack. The credit card knife folds and snaps into position within seconds and has no metal hinges that are prone to rusting. The blade itself is made of high-grade surgical steel, ensuring that it remains durable, sharp, and rust-free throughout its lifetime. The design of the knife comes with a built-in safety sheath that prevents any potential injuries from carrying open blades, and the protective hand guard provides maximum grip.

Learn how one can get a credit card knife for just the cost of shipping here.

These credit card knives have been endorsed by Discovery Channel star Mykel Hawke as one of the most efficient pocket knifes on the market. For a limited time, Jordan Victors through one of his connections is offering the credit card knife for free, with just the payment of shipping and handling.

“The credit card knife really puts the convenience back into being prepared,” says Victors.

“Even though traditional pocket knifes are supposed to be compact, they still add extra bulkiness that just gets in the way. Whether people find themselves in an emergency situation or just need a sharp knife within arm’s reach for convenience, the credit card knife is the ultimate go-to solution.”

“Right now is the ideal time go get a hold of the credit card knife since it’s being offered at such a great discount. Whether you store it in your wallet, kitchen drawer, or emergency kit, you can always feel prepared without having to worry about space.”
