New Lantern Keeps Biting Bugs At Bay
Thermacell Repellents, Inc. has developed one of the more aesthetically pleasing and versatile non-topical bug repellents available with their line of lanterns, torches, and other repellers. All are up to 98% effective in creating a 15 x 15 foot zone of protection from mosquitos, black flies, no-see-ums, and other biting bugs in just minutes.
"There is no longer a need to douse yourself in DEET," says Thermacell. Powered by a single butane cartridge, the Patio and Camp Lanterns provide portable light and heat that activates a rising repellent vapor of allethria, similar to the natural bug repellent found in chrysanthemum flowers. The patented products are EPA approved, and will not harm humans or pets. The U.S. Department of Defense has used Thermacell for over a decade, throughout the world, to keep sand flies, no-see-ums, mosquitos, and other pests at bay.
The new Scout Lantern is water resistant and provides 220 lumens of ambient lighting, with four light settings, a rubber grip handle, and a hanging clip, ideally suited for the boating environment. Butane cartridges and repellent inserts are easily replaced, and the lantern may be used without activating the repellent function as well.
The Patio Lantern retails for $29.99, and the Camp / Scout Lantern list for $59.99. For more information and to purchase, see their website at www.thermacell.com.

Quick Release Hinges For Bimini Tops
Bimini tops are a great addition to a boat, but they're not always easy to install and remove. Accon Marine's Quick Release Bimini Hinges provide boat owners with a hassle-free way to quickly and easily connect and detach this accessory.
The low-profile hinges are constructed from 316 stainless steel, and enable users to remove and install bimini top frames without having to keep track of screws and pins. The hardware simply snaps into the hinge base, and stays attached to the bimini frame when separated. Surface mount and stud mount versions are available, and neither requires any cut-outs, only two #10 screws. The stud-mount version has no visible holes for a sleek appearance. Accon Marine's Quick Release Bimini Hinges start at $31.97.
Accon Marine specializes in stainless steel products that enhance the boating experience. Inventor of the original Pop-Up cleat, the company strives for high-quality and usefulness in all of its products.
