Eveready® Hung Askew

Batteries Hooked Askew on Scan Hooks Main2 If you have a bit of extra space you might try for added visual interest with an unusual product hang and include a bit of negative space. If you doubt effectiveness just compare the visibility of the Energizer® hung normal, and the Eveready® Gold hung askew widely spaced in the last gallery photo below. CLICK the gallery to check all other perspectives and distances. What I would appreciate is a study by someone comparing product density of tight-packed normal display with tight-packed angled display. I bet density similar in the center of full displays, though angled would loose a bit along the edges. Hooks are 2-Piece Straight Entry Scan Hooks which make it easy to arrange any layout you like.

Chrome Tiki Torch Rack

Tiki Torch Metal Rack 2.0 Main

Tiki Torches in Chrome

Tiki Torch Metal Rack 2.0 AuxSo okay, if not actual Chrome, then these Tiki Torches are Stainless Steel or polished Aluminum. In any event they lay at the ultra modern range of Tradtitional vs Contemporary Tiki styles. Heavier than Bamboo, but lighter than Wrought Iron, they still require a substantial metal rack as stable base for display. CLICK the thumbnail for a broader view. Then follow the Tiki Links to other display concepts. See that the upper rack holes are elliptical to accommodate Tiki stabilizing side-stake.

Brass-tone Tiki Torch Rack

Tiki Torch Metal Rack

Tiki Torch Metal Rack

A Metal Rack merchandising base is guaranteed to resist the top-heavy tendencies of these Brass-tone metal Tiki Torches. Though natural Bamboo Torches are nice, metal torches have multi-Summer longevity, and are Modern not Native in appearance. They just require a bottom-heavy, weighted approach to display. CLICK through the gallery to see that the mount points are elliptical to accommodate the side-struts of the Tiki’s shaft.

Serrated Utility Hook For Rakes

Serrated Rake Broom Hook Main

Serrated Rake Broom Hook AuxDoubleArm Utility Hooks like this are often called Broom Hooks for their obvious main use. This Utility Hook varies from the norm in its serrated metal plate arm, and Summer display of rakes instead of broom, or the typical Winter offering, shovels. Bar Mounted at the rear, the fixture is contrasted to the left by Undulating Arm Utility Hooks. Both Serated and Undulated help position the merchandise in a more organized fashion, and prevent entanglement. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.

Expresso Cup Disco at Coles Hardware AuxAn overhead cup carousel was a very popular previous fixture post. I simply had to support it with this Cup and Mug Mobile by Cole Hardware of San Francisco. The cups are the visual surprise and attention compeller. Barn board walls, wood shelves, finely crafted wood furniture turn the theme toward items Cole’s could supply … carpentry and woodworking tools. Cole is a master of hardware Window Dressing.

Shelf-Edge Eye Lag Rope Feed

Shelf Edge Eye Lag For Rope Ends

Simple Eye Lag Organizes Rope Feed From Reel

Shelf Edge Eye Lag Closeup AuxSimple stock Eye Lags tie up rope loose ends in hardware. Giving the rope an anchor keeps the display more orderly, and trip hazards off the floor. If you position the cutter lower than the spools and lags, you will automatically reinforce feeding rope through the eyehole for purchase. Otherwise, rope ends will wander. CLICK the thumbnail for closeup. Good for both natural Hemp and man-made Nylon and such. And a Do-It-Yourself solution in a Do-It-Yourself Channel of Retail, so to speak.

Chalkboard Lampshade Back-to-School

Chalkboard Lampshade Display Overview

In-Aisle Chalkboard Lampshade Display for Back-to-School

Chalkboard Lampshade DetailComplete with corrugated display, this unique, write-on Chalkboard Lampshade pops-up in time for Back-to-School (pop pun on point-of-purchase intended). The advertising message and multilingual packaging are hand lettered as if true chalkboard, conveying use even more quickly than the name itself. The corrugated display was created from the shipping carton. Very cool. I wonder how easy to erase the chalk message once written? CLICK the thumbnail for a closer look. Seen in a hardware supercenter.

Color Nail Heads as Art

Colored Nail Peg Art Main

Images Courtesy of Naomi Jordan and naomijdoran.wordpress.com

Colored Nail Peg Art Front ViewAs a site that deals with Peg Board, Peg Hook, Push Pins, Plug-in Hooks and more, how could FixturesCloseUp not share the regularity of Naomi Dorma’s color-headed nail art in rank and file Pegboardish rows. One assumes purposefully recycled nails add to the informality of the display, even though arrayed in a perfect square (See thumbnail). I liked the well-worn colors too. Before you just blow off the effort, know that it can be more difficult to make something look random and informal, than structured and formal. Placement of the nail colors might have been more of a challenge than you’d think.

DeWalt® Diamond Plate Peg Hooks

DeWaltr Cutting Discs Pegged Main

DeWalt® Diamond Plate Peg Hooks

If you are famous like DeWalt®, you might think it demeaning to hang your Cutting Disks on ordinary Pegboard Hooks. So here is an entire DeWalts point-of-purchase creation with heavy-duty custom Pegs. Most employ a full-peg-length bushing to further customize and keep disks from clanking around loosely. What I liked best however was the Diamond Plate background, again adding to the heavy duty appeal.

Diamond Plate For Gift Cards

Diamond Plate Gift Cards CloseUp Main

Diamond Plate Gift Cards Overall AuxIf Gift Cards seem like a sissy’s gift for your hard-bitten hardware customers, maybe you could toughen up the display with rugged Diamond Plate. These island display kickplates are real Diamond Plate for real “He Men.” I have seen printed imitations, but not here. Still I might have echoed the Diamond Plate to the header signage … as real plate or printed pattern … to more strongly project the desired image. Not a suitable theme for ordinary cards, but well suited to hardware and building warehouse gift card displays.

Trident Backplate Configuration

Trident Hook Backplate Bottom Main

Trident Hook Backplate Overall AuxJust a bit more than a Trident configuration, the wide-spread legs and lugs of these sign struts stabilize the informational offering. All-wire construction saves a manufacturing operation … backplate metal stamping and welding … and with the right equipment could be bent and welded in one pass, Though essentially the same, the top arm’s lugs do enter the pegboard, while the bottom arm’s do not, merely splayed for stability and support. CLICK the thumbnail for an overall look at the display, which offers male and female thread examples in English and Metric so you can determine your fastener diameter, thread and pitch.

Plastic Pegboard Blues

Pegboard Blues on Blue Pegboard Detail

Pegboard Blues on Blue Pegboard OverallWhat a stunning shade of translucent blue for this Plastic Pegboard. I absolutely love some of the colors and opacities available in plastics. But most (not all) are brittle and subject to breakage and shattering UNLESS the display is designed to protect, and the merchandise correct. This was part of a freestanding, in-aisle display so little protection from passersby. Worse, long-handled items were merchandised, whose leverage easily overloaded the plastic as shoppers jostled to take items off. Still the blue was stunning. Hooks are Metal Backplate, 2-Pieces Straight Entry Scanning Hooks. Also available in Plastic Backplate from a variety of sources.

Bungee-Corded Banners

Bungee Corded Banner CloseUp

Bungee Corded Banner2Here upper-stage Pallet Rack becomes the framework for Billboard-like Banners defining the department in two languages. Being a hardware store means anything you need is in stock and right at hand, so various lengths of elastic Bungee Cord became the Banner anchors. CLICK the closeup to see how adaptable in length an elastic mount can be, and that Grommets save the day as load is applied to Banner fabric.

Vintage Valise of Lightbulbs

Bulbrite Vintage Valise Counter Display POPON.net Main

Image Courtesy of Bulbright ant POPON.net

Few better ways to see vintage displayed than with a vintage valise. And in this case the valise also imparts portability and immediacy to this Bulbrite® Countertop Display. I have seen the bulbs in Lowes, Home Depot and elsewhere, but have yet to encounter the valise in person. This image courtesy of POPON.net as an addition to the thread of Valise merchandising concepts on record here at FixturesCloseUp.

Undulating Hook-Hung Basket

Hook Hung Basket Overall

Labeled a Charcoal Metal Garden Rack, what interests FixturesCloseUp is that it is a Slatwall Fixture combining Undulating Double-Arm Utility Hooks, an Openwire Shelf with a Hanging Wire Basket. The Slatwall mount is more common in retail than residential use, but the mobile Wire Basket would fit home, not merchandising needs. Outwater® is not particular. They will sell to anyone … retailers, architects, the public. even fixture showroom tourists like me. So I report the fixture news and leave choice of use to you.

EDITORS NOTE: No remuneration was involved in this post. While in New Jersey I browsed Outwater Plastics Showroom in person. Open to the public I am sure it catered to architects and the trade too.
