"Tire Tongue" to debut at the SEMA Show!

Chariot Concepts LLC of Yuba City, California is introducing their newest innovation in tire and wheel merchandising gear at the SEMA Show. Intended to be an easy way to hold and display signs, the new "Tire Tongue" delivers much more than expected for such a simple but clever device.

Made from flexible black neoprene, the Tire Tongue slides in between two surfaces and is held in place by friction. At the tip of the tongue is a magnetic sign clamp that holds everything from SALE! signs to customer invoices or even rack labels and inventory sheets. The flexible neoprene allows the tip of the tongue to hang down vertically, presenting information to customers in an attractive and professional way.

The Tire Tongue is the fifth in a line of unique and helpful merchandising products invented by Chariot Concepts for the tire industry. Chariot Concepts is owned by Dan Jensen, a 40 year retail tire veteran.

For immediate release.
