Austin, TX, United States, 2007/05/09 - Golfsmith, picks up Cypress Industries' product, Gatorjaws® Club Guard, for distribution in 68 retail outlets and the 2007 spring catalog. Gatorjaws® prevents theft of expensive golf clubs by securing golf clubs to bag [NASDAQ: GOLF] - Golfsmith.com.
Cypress Industries in conjunction with RGO Enterprises announced today that the Gatorjaws® ClubGuard product has been picked up for retail sale by one of the leading national golf specialty retailers, Austin-based, Golfsmith International Holdings, Inc. The product is now being offered in their 2007 spring catalog and will be on the shelves throughout Golfsmith's 68 retail outlet stores. The product idea was developed and patented by RGO Enterprises of Memphis, Tennessee and was funded, designed, and manufactured by Cypress Industries of Austin, Texas.
The Gatorjaws® Club Guard is a patent pending product specifically designed to prevent the theft of golf clubs and golf bags. Individual clubs can be easily taken from an unattended golf bag or even the entire bag can be taken with very little notice. The Gatorjaws® Club Guard teeth-like design clamps around all the valuable clubs in the bag, attaches to a stationary object with a steel security cable and is safely secured with a keyed padlock.
The insurance industry has reported an excess of $120 million dollars in golf clubs are stolen every year from unattended golf bags from places such as the golf course, from a car, truck or SUV, or at airports. Putters, wedges and expensive drivers are usual targets of the golf club thieves.
Bill Goforth, Chairman of RGO Enterprises says, "We are pleased to have Golfsmith pick up Gatorjaws® for their stores. We recognize the significant marketing advantage we have with Golfsmith as one of the top national retail chains with superior products and services. We are confident Gatorjaws will land in the hands of the people who will truly benefit from the use of our product."
