CRYSTAL LAKE, ILL. - August 2007 - Knaack LLC has made it easier for customers to purchase genuine factory-authorized KNAACK® and WEATHER GUARD® replacement parts by making them available at distribution centers.

The most frequently requested replacements parts for KNAACK products include WATCHMAN® III and IV lock systems and KNAACK tan aerosol paint. Popular WEATHER GUARD replacement parts are EXTREME PROTECTION® locks for various truck boxes, paddle handle latch and lock kit, vented fuel caps, striker plates, cables and blind fasteners.

Easy-to-read packaging provides a clear indication as to the product model and generation that each replacement part fits. The contents of the package are clearly visible for added assurance that the new part matches the old part.

but after years of wear and tear under the toughest jobsite conditions, occasionally some parts need to be replaced," said Debbie Bergquist, associate product manager,
Knaack LLC. "It is reassuring to know that replacement parts are conveniently
available if needed."
