Trimmer Assist launches at National Hardware Show

ATLANTA - NLKUSLLC is launching the Trimmer Assist, a weed eating suspension product that aims to replace conventional fixed length straps with bungee suspension, CEO Tony Hanes announced.

The company showcased the Trimmer Assist May 7-9 at the National Hardware Show in the "Inventors Spotlight" area at booth IS202.

The product features a bungee suspension system that can be used effectively on string trimmers, edgers or hand-held blowers. Trimmer Assist also incorporates a proprietary connection system that allows quick and easy connections to all models. It features a soft quilted shoulder pad and has an additional quick release buckle for convenience.

The Trimmer Assist is a proprietary bungee suspension system that provides advancement to universal landscaping straps, according to a company press release. "That's why we decided to call this product a Trimmer Assist, as its function is superior to the conventional fixed length strap," Hanes said.

At the National Hardware Show, NLKUSLLC announced that in partnership with Eddie Sharp Racing, the company will showcase the Trimmer Assist on the No. 8 Chevrolet for Max Gresham in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Gresham kicked off the partnership by competing in the May 17 North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the No. 8 Chevrolet, with Trimmer Assist as secondary sponsor, taking third position finish. The Trimmer Assist will adorn the No. 8 Eddie Sharp Racing Chevrolet as the primary sponsor with a full paint scheme at Dover Speedway on May 31.

"We are so proud to partner with Max Gresham in the No. 8 Chevrolet for Eddie Sharp Racing," Hanes said. "Gresham represents the same fundamental principles of our Trimmer Assist brand - cleverness, strong work ethics and commitment to success."

Gresham, 20, a Milner Ga., native, has driven in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series since 2011 with 20 career starts. He was the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion earning two victories, four pole positions, nine top-five finishes and 11 top-10s in 12 starts.

"We cannot wait for Gresham to carry us past the checkered flag as we are very excited to ride with him," Hanes said.

Hanes will also be interviewed by the Cajun Contractor Michael King on "Home Talk USA" on June 15, where he will explain the journey of bringing a product to market and will also make a big announcement, the release states.

Founded in June 2011 in Griffin, Ga., NLKUSLLC was created to set up manufacturing and distribution of the Trimmer Assist. Sales are currently through e-commerce at and, and will soon be available through brick-and-mortar retailers.
