Finally, A Bow Light That’s Comfortable To Sit On
Protruding hardware on a boat can detract from its sleek foredeck, and is uncomfortable to sit or step on. The 210 Pop-Up® LED Bow Light from Accon Marine folds down flush into its base during the day and flips up with the touch of a button when night falls.
The Accon 210 Pop-Up LED Bow Light is U.S. Coast Guard-approved for two nautical miles. It’s built of polished marine-grade stainless steel for corrosion resistance and a contemporary appearance. The lamp measures 4.43-inches L x 4-inches W and draws only 115mA.
Simple to install, the Accon Pop-Up LED Bow Light is available in through-bolt or stud-mount models. An included installation template notes the main 3.5-inch and three fastener holes. It requires 2.65-inch clearance. Both versions accept the optional plastic waterproofing cup to prevent runoff below deck. A detailed instruction video is at bit.ly/PopUpBowLight. The through-bolt model costs $215.48, the stud-mount version $223.37.
Life Industries Sanitizer Offers Long-Term Protection
As soon as alcohol-based cleaners dry, they offer no additional protection. Sanitizer from Life Industries, however, continues to disinfect long after it’s applied. Its active ingredient reduces bacterial contamination on hard surfaces up to a week after treatment. Not only is less product needed long-term, thus reducing overall costs, but safety is increased.
The COVID-19 pandemic has educated Americans and Canadians on the importance of cleanliness. Life Industries Sanitizer contains benzalkonium chloride (BZK), a safe ingredient that continues working to reduce the reformation of bacterial colonies after it’s applied, unlike alcohol-based products. BZK is an FDA- and CDC-approved alternative to alcohol-based disinfectants.
Sanitizer is ideal for use on boats, RV and aircraft, as well as around the home, office and manufacturing plant. It’s available in 4, 8, 12, 16 and 32 fl. oz. spray bottles, plus 16 fl. oz and 1 gal. refill bottles. Prices start at $2.63.
Life Industries develops, formulates and manufactures commercial chemical products including cleaners, protectants, caulks, sealants and restoration items. Its brands include BoatLIFE, RV by LIFE and AeroLIFE.
Iosso Protects Vinyl, Leather And Isenglass
Sun, ozone, embedded dirt, sweat and temperature extremes are hard on flexible outdoor materials like vinyl, rubber, leather and isinglass. They become dry and prone to cracking, as well as old-looking due to color fading. Vinyl and Leather Cleaner & Conditioner from Iosso Products helps prevent recreational equipment from aging prematurely. As it cleans, it restores the original suppleness and shine, and provides long-lasting protection in one simple-to-use product.
Vinyl and Leather Cleaner & Conditioner is made in the USA using premium natural oils that clean away tough grime. As it conditions, it provides a light gloss protective barrier. Minor scratches are far less noticeable, especially on clear vinyl windows. The unique formula is ideal for boats, PWC, automobiles, motorcycles and snowmobiles, as well as outdoor accessories and trim. It’s equally effective around the home.
Iosso Vinyl and Leather Cleaner & Conditioner is easy to use. Sprayed onto the surface, it’s then wiped with a clean microfiber towel or lint-free cloth. Buffing lightly removes contaminants and restores the material’s natural glow. A 4 oz. spray bottle costs $4.95; a 16 oz. spray bottle is $12.95; and a 1 gal. container is $65.95.
