Kinedyne Corp. recently awarded five companies with $1,000 shopping sprees of Kinedyne cargo securement products. The sweepstakes was part of an event held at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show.

The company said it received a record number of entries for the shopping sprees.

“In addition to our popular contest, we also debuted a new product that is being developed by Kinedyne this year called the Retract-A-Bar,” said Jessica Madden, marketing coordinator at Kinedyne. “This versatile heavy-duty load restraint bar retracts from 107 in. to 54 in. for easy shipping, storing and use within large dry freight, refrigerated trailers, small utility vehicles and standard pickup trucks.”

Kinedyne’s Retract-A-Bar is scheduled to be on shelves early this fall.
