Kness’ Ketch-All Mousetrap Captures Retailers’ Choice Award

Ants on PavementAlbia, IA (December 15, 2020) – Kness Pest Defense's world-renowned Ketch-All® Multiple Catch Mousetrap has been awarded the 2020 Retailers' Choice Award by the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA). Each year, this award is bestowed on standout products that are showcased at the National Hardware Show. The Retailers' Choice Committee selected the Ketch-All for the Most Innovative Item category.

"This is a great honor to have our product chosen for this award," said Dan Crew, General Manager of Kness. "We strive to make the most innovative pest control solutions, and the Ketch-All is the perfect example of the company's commitment to that mission."

The award is seen as a result of the unwavering efforts put forth by Kness employees. "The award gives recognition of their hard work and dedication. The Kness team works hard to provide our customers with a quality product, whether it is on the production floor or through customer service," continued Crew.

The Kness Ketch-All Multiple Catch Mousetrap is known for its ingenious design that has stood the test of time since 1924. This mousetrap is made to capture multiple mice alive while not using any baits or harmful chemicals. This trap uses a mouse's curiosity as bait.

Once the mouse enters either side of the tunnel opening, the hair-trigger activates the paddlewheel, and the mouse is sent into a caged compartment. Trapped mice also attract other mice to the trap. An entire family of mice can be trapped with no bait, no mess, and no poisonous chemicals, with the help of this simple catch and release trap that works every time.

"Ketch-All is a tried and true product of the Kness product line," said Crew.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Hardware Show was held virtually this year. Despite the virtual format, the event hosted loads of inventors and innovators. The show's award ceremony was also held virtually. This achievement marks the first time one of Kness' products have received a NRHA Retailers' Choice Award.

Crew stated, "This award goes to everyone at Kness; everyone deserves a thank you for this achievement."
