Chariot Concepts will be introducing the Sidewall Signpost for the First Time at SEMA

Anybody who sells tires and fusses with those round plastic display discs is going to love the Sidewall Signpost! It is a simple device that pops into place on the bead of your display tire so the display disc can be securely attached in a way that doesn't droop or drop. Wiil keep your display together even outside in wind and rain! They come in all sizes to fit tires from 14" to 24" and will be introduced for the first time at SEMA in the New Product Showcase, as well as in the TruStack Tire Dolly booth, booth 40339.


Bishop Innovations introduced its first automotive product at the 2015 SEMA show. HOZEEZ was developed by our father/daughter team of Bob and Jen after Jen got tired of having the hose get stuck under the tires while washing her car. Her aggravation inspired a solution that eliminates that problem. HOZEEZ is unlike any other. Designed by an Engineer who is also an enthusiast, HOZEEZ is simple, effective, and durable. HOZEEZ allows you to drag the hose around the car without it getting stuck. Knots or kinks in the hose slide right along our patent-pending design. No careful placement is needed – just drop it on the ground and kick it under the tire. The hose sliding around actually pulls HOZEEZ tighter under the tire, instead of dislodging it like previously tried (and mostly abandoned) products. Just toss it in your wash bucket for storage when you’re done. If you forget it’s on the ground and accidently drive over it, no problem!
