As America’s garages continue to increase in size so do the storage solutions and variety of products produced by Gladiator® GarageWorks. The garage organization leader will become the first major U.S. manufacturer to commercially produce a product from the entrepreneurial network reality show, American Inventor. A prototype of the innovative, bike mounting device known as the Claw on the hit television show will be showcased alongside two new extra large heavy duty steel cabinets measuring eight and six feet respectively at this year's International Builders Show (IBS).

The bicycle storage device prototype designed by Craig Forrest and David Moeller will be displayed at IBS then restyled, rebranded, renamed and relaunched by the brand in the coming months. To store a bicycle up to 50 pounds the device grasps a bicycle’s tire by opposing hooks when the central plunger is depressed. By re-pressing or "bumping the plunger" the device opens and unlocks for easy bicycle wheel removal without having to lift the bicycle over the top of a standard bike hook.

“As size of homes and garages in America continue to increase, customers are demanding more ways to store and organize larger bulkier items and keep them hidden behind closed doors,” noted Lou Ann Schafer, Senior Marketing Manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. “To address and improve bicycle storage specifically, we secured a deal to bring the bicycle storage device to market. In addition, to solve almost all other large storage needs we've engineered two of the largest heavy duty steel garage cabinets ever announced.”

In the coming months, Gladiator brand will launch the staggering Gladiator® Eight Foot Cabinet, which is taller than the world’s largest current active professional basketball player and large enough to house items like vacuum cleaners, large bins or landscaping tools. The brand is also introducing the Gladiator® Extra Large GearBox Cabinet, the brand's largest GearBox with 48" wide x 72" high x 18" deep dimensions, perfect for storing gardening pots, life vests, sleeping bags, toolboxes, or bulk supplies.

The Gladiator® Eight Foot Cabinet and the Gladiator® Extra Large GearBox Cabinet will be available this spring. Pricing for all products, and availability and specs of the bicycle device will be announced later this year.
