Mockett Names Contest Winners MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — Doug Mockett & Co., which hosts an Annual Design Com- petition now in its 34th year, has announced the latest winning entries. The winning product de- signs came from design students Hannah Eckersley and Michael Nelson, both currently enrolled in the industrial design program at Appalachian State University. There are no restrictions for entry and no professional cre- dentials required for submitting a design, making this a significant opportunity for students, free- lance designers and hobbyists to win a cash prize of $1,000, plus royalties based on sales since each design is produced and sold by the firm. Eckersley's design is an art deco-inspired coat hook that takes an ordinary stamped trian - gle plate and layers it by bending out additional interior triangles that serve as multi-level hooks. Carpenters Protest Tax Fraud P O RT L A N D, O R — Regional councils affiliated with the Unit- ed Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) in the U.S. and Canada are planning "days of action" this month to focus attention on what the UBC claims is a "crisis" regarding tax fraud in the con- struction trade. Actions are planned for April 15, when individual tax returns are due in the U.S., and the days leading up to it, UBC officials said last month. The group has charged that legitimate con- tracting firms are being forced to compete with construction employers on all types of proj- ects, including taxpayer-funded work, that are not properly withholding or paying income or employment taxes for their workers. To bring attention to the is- sue of tax fraud, UBC affiliates are planning a variety of actions, including lobbying efforts and job-site demonstrations. Information can be obtained by visiting www.StandingUpTo- A shirt or jacket can be hung on the bot- tom hook, while an additional jacket, hat or scarf can be hung on the larger hook above. Nelson's design is a floor wire man- ager that runs under a desk against the back of the desk or against the wall or baseboard to shield and conceal wires safely out of harm's way. The device doubles as a footrest. This distinctive take on ordinary wirestay channels adds a caddy for power strips and allows addi- tional cabling to run underneath, notes the company. Mockett is now accepting entries for the 2019 Annual Design Competi- tion. For information, visit https://www. March 2019 • 21 Circle No. 12 on Product Card
