Sleepy Hollow, new on Fox this season, is the modern version of Washington Irving's, Ichabod Crane. What better to contain the Headless Horseman than some 4" and 5" plastic chain from Mr. Chain! Check our chain's debut in the video below and tune in Mondays at 9/8c for all the chain action!
Mr. Chain Reaction
With all the hype about creating American jobs, we invite you to explore this avenue presented by Alex and Ana Bogusky.
As the video states: "It's as simple as this, every time you buy something, make sure its made in America. But you have to pay attention, sometimes even if you think the brand is American, even if there is an America flag on the package, it may not be made here."
Mr. Chain is proud to bring you American-made plastic chain and stanchions for 53 years. Contact us for more information today, and join the pledge to "buy 5% more US-made product and share this video with two people."
Earlier this year Keep America Beautiful (“KAB”) and the Ad Council launched the “I Want to Be Recycled” campaign aiming to motivate recycling in American households. The campaign features common household products for recycling and what they can become once recycled. These include a milk bottle becoming a park bench or a tin can becoming part of a bicycle. “The Ad Council and KAB say that other EPA data indicates only about 35 percent of the 250 million tons of trash Americans generate annually is recycled.” (Source: In the Hopper: SPI’s Business Blog).
Recycling is an initiative in Mr. Chain’s sustainability policy and we urge all customers to recycle products at the end of their life. Plastic chain and stanchions made of HDPE are #2 recyclable. Polystyrene used to make our Ground Stakes, Reels, and Edging is #6 recyclable.
Visit IWantToBeRecycled.org to learn more about the campaign and find a recycling center near you.
The 2013 NSC Congress & Expo was a huge success for Mr. Chain! Connecting with customers and showcasing the new Magnet Ring/Carabiner Kit were among the highlights. There were also many stanchions to see, including the new and improved X-Treme Duty Stanchion, and the ever popular 2" Yellow Chain. Mr. Chain also unveiled an entirely new booth as seen below.
This American- made, original M R Products' design is strong and durable yet light for shipping. The stanchion has a variety of features for ease of use. Equipped with a water bladder that can hold approximately two gallons of water, the stanchion is ideal for heavy-duty, industrial uses. The ribbed handle combined with wheels located on the base make the stanchion highly portable, empty or full. When not in use, the stacking bases store with ease. The stanchion weighs approximately 25 lbs. when full of water.
The X-Treme Duty Stanchion will easily accommodate Mr. Chain's 2”, 2" Heavy Duty, and 3" chain. With a keyhole slot and built-in c-hooks, chain can be run in one continuous length or cut to specific lengths.
In preparation for the 2013 National Safety Council Congress and Expo, September 30-October 2, Mr. Chain will be featured in a series of Ads in NSC’s Safety+Health magazine. The magazine “offers comprehensive national coverage of occupational safety news and analysis of industry trends to 86,000 subscribers.” The September issue features 2013’s Rising Stars of Safety. You will find our ad on page 17. Be sure to visit us at booth number 1100!
With so many eager children running around the school grounds, safety measures are extremely important. One area of concern is busing. Ease confusion by assigning a color to each bus route and, using Mr. Chain plastic links and stanchions, create corresponding spaces near the bus loading zone for students to wait in. Not only does it make sure everybody gets on the right bus, it also keeps students away from the vehicles until they’re safely parked and ready for boarding. Additionally, driveways and streets near crossways can be blocked off to protect pedestrians, or cars can be routed in a particular direction to facilitate traffic flow.
One advantage with using Mr. Chain products is that they are lightweight, giving you plenty of flexibility. They can be put in place during high traffic times and removed afterwards, and can also be easily moved while in use. The safety barriers can be ordered in your school colors. We also offer stanchions and chains specifically designed for pedestrian crossings (pictured above). Visit MrChain.com to find a safety solution that works for you.
