WARMINSTER, Pa., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Car Bow Store announced today the release of a new line of car bows which adhere to the hoods of vehicles with a giant suction cup. This new product is a reaction to the trend of auto manufacturers aggressively shifting towards aluminum components in their vehicles including aluminum hoods and body panels which are lighter and more fuel efficient than steel. This change is quickly making traditional magnetic car bows obsolete. According to Michael Rudolph, president of Car Bow Store, "The suction cup is the ideal choice for securing a car bow since it is effective with steel, aluminum, and fiberglass hoods and is softer and more scratch-resistant than a magnetic base."
The company will now offer their popular 22" Car Bows and 30" Car Bows with the option of a scratch-resistant magnetic base or giant suction cup for an additional $3.00. Car Bow Store uses the strongest American-made Suction cups available, which also offer the added benefit of being softer and more scratch resistant than the usual magnetic bases. According to Rudolph, "The suction cup car bows are particularly popular with high-end car dealers where the cars are made from aluminum and the dealers are very concerned about not damaging their vehicles."
Companies such as Ford have been dabbling in aluminum manufacturing technology since the 1990s. For example, the 2015 Ford F-150 is constructed of a fully aluminum body, which helped the truck drop 700 pounds. Most auto manufacturers, however, are not ready to take the plunge into fully aluminum cars due to the high cost, but are moving towards utilizing aluminum strategically to reduce weight. One of the easiest places to utilize aluminum is in the hood and many manufacturers are moving towards aluminum hoods. According to Rudolph, "We are excited to be the innovative leader in the car bow industry and believe that suction cups will be the new standard for car bows in the future."
