Straight-Entry Scan Loop Hook

Metal Plate Straight-Entry Loop Hook Main

Seemingly a simple Metal Plate Label Holder Hook, this fixture is actually Loop Hook, Scan Hook and Straight-Entry Hook all in one … a triple threat when it comes to store outfitting. Step through the Gallery of photos below to see the varoius aspects. As a multi-piece unit, the hook allows straight-entry and movement in crowded displays and tight under shelves. In Loop Hook configuration it is Display-only, but add an overhead Scan Arm in any of several Label Holder styles and it coverts to a Scanning Hook right in the field. If your vertical merchandising is sophisticated, maybe you need simple but sophisticated hookery in support thereof.

Wheel Chocks on Summer Sale

Self Merchandising Lawn Spreader Stacks

Wheel Chocks Restrain Self-Merchandising Lawn Spreader Stacks

Self Merchandising Lawn Spreader StacksJust weeks ago these nesting, self-merchandising Lawn Spreaders stood rank and file stretching into the distance. Now the display is but a faint memory of previous fully-stocked glory. The nesting, self-merchandising design was much of the success story. But as stock dwindles lets not forget to focus on the Wheel Chocks which also made effective retail display possible. CLICK the thumbnail for what end-of-Summer merchandise remains. Then compare with the early season promotion below.

Nesting as Self-Merchandising

Stackable Lawn Spreader Overall

Stackable Lawn Spreader Self-Merchandising Display

The wheels of one Lawn Spreader tuck perfectly into the hopper of the Spreader below creating a self-stacking display. Pan to the bottom of the main photo to see that a formed plastic base keeps the stack from rolling away by itself. All told it makes a great massed display. CLICK through the gallery to see details.

New Slant on Fantini® Retailing

https://fixturescloseup.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/margarit-and-tony-kadysewski-at-fantini-ad-bldg.jpg

Touring the Fantini Showroom in the Architect and Designers Bulding, Manhattan

Margarit and Tony Kadysewski at Fantini AuxFantini hosted an evening Open House in the Designer and Architects Building, Manhattan. We couldn’t attend the night-time festivities but did stop by earlier in the day to congratulate and pay our respects. The staff took our photo but given the list to Port (my Port not yours), we suspect they had been sampling the night’s refreshments a bit early. Sorry we didn’t capture more of the Fantini wares. But as walking advertising for consumer consumption  I am Kangol, Robert Graham, Gucci belt, Nautica, and Ferragamo from top to bottom. Margarit is more simply Karen Millen with Biviel Wedges. We look better than we live. With so much time spent in retail you can imagine we find all the reduced-price and close-out items keeping wardrobing cost to a minimum. My wife in a previous existence worked as a professional shopper for a well-to-do family of 7. Make her an offer and we’ll take charge of outfitting you simultaneously.

Mini Blinds as Micro Display

Mini Blinds as Mini Display Aux

Mini Blinds as Mini Display MainHard to envision how pleated-shades and mini-blinds might look in real life from even well shot package photography. A less than life-size, real life example can help. Though I think I would have used a decorator color molding. Keeping the plain blind allows the purchaser to envision their own selection in its place. But if your clientele is artsy or upscale, why not decorator exterior molding AND a decoraor blind? Another benefit of this mini-display, customers can play with the function and inspect construction details. This engages them at the shelf edge right in front of your offerings.

Desperate Measures in Fixturing

Desperate Measures Slatwall Hook

Desperate Measures Slatwall Hook Bolted to Horizontal Bar

A threaded bolt and nut are used to affix this Flatback, Slatwall, Single-Prong Display Hook to a back bar in support on long-handled product merchandising. One must in some ways applaud a floor staff so resolute in creating a fixture solution. But I don’t think this particular use was envisioned by the manufacturer. See other “permanent fixture solutions below as well as links to Ultility and Boom Hooks for long-handled applications.

Bellawood® Slant on Floor Care

Zip Tie Floor Care Kit Main

Zip Tie Floor Care Kit DetailTired of displaying your mops and brooms vertically from Double-Arm Utility Hooks? Add some visual interest by turning vertical items on their sides. Here the contents of a Bellawood Floor Care Kit are unboxed and displayed to show the contents. That is one damn nicely crafted dust mop. Just seeing it engages me, and I’m not the chief floor duster in my household. Though a hole-punched background, it is not true Pegboard or mainstream Metal Perfboard, but just as easily could be. Mounting is simple black zip ties, so they blend with the background.

Though slotwall of a sort, this is not meant for hook-mount displays in a traditional sense.

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.

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.

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.

Tender Product Shop Hardware Macramé

Hardware Store Hose Macramé Window Dressing

Tender Product Shop Hardware Macramé CloseupA bit busy but far more than a bit creative, this Macramé window display of flexible ductwork or hose. It might be an equally eye-catching visual for a Macramé Craft Store as hardware shop, for vacuum cleaner sales or HVAC. Which was it here? See the original posted by Chris John Beckett on Flickr and try to guess. Then return for related merchandising links below.

Mug-Mobile Woodwork

Expresso Cup Disco at Coles Hardware Detail

Cole Hardware Mug-Mobile Window Dressing

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.
