Packaging for Hardware: Insights from NHS 2018

This May, we attended the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. Every year, the NHS aims to help companies move their business forward with new buying opportunities, merchandising ideas & solutions, money-saving deals & face-to-face networking opportunities.

We spent a few days in the exhibit hall and show, checking out the new and innovative products that vendors had showcased. Along the way, we came across a few Mold-Rite caps and closures adorning packages. Below are some of the highlights we want to share:

Disc Tops

Featuring a simple snap, disc top closures are ready to dispense without a mess and securely close just as easily.  Nellie's uses our disc tops for their floor cleaning products.

Our Single-Flap Flapper® has standardized dry food dispensing. These caps are easy to open, dispense, and close with one hand, ensuring product freshness and functionality.  Croix Valley Foods uses our 53mm and 63mm Dual Flapper tops when packaging their BBQ rubs and seasonings.

The 110 mm Flapper® offers a lightweight closure with both slotted and pourable orifices. With the slotted option, consumers can easily dispense their product in a controlled manner.  Tillsonbrands uses our Hinged Large Format Flapper® in the packaging for their JetBlue Ice Fighter

Our child-resistant tops come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  Patio Essentials uses our 38mm Child Resistant Closure on their Pure Light torch fuel.  The embossed CRC will safely secure your product while ensuring compliance with protocol testing to meet Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards.
