New Adjustable Sawhorse Earns Stanley® FatMax™ Badge
For Innovative Features
Adjustable Sawhorse Combines Rugged-Durability With Four Independently Adjustable Legs For Use On Uneven Surfaces

SUMMARY: Stanley proudly introduces the FatMax™ Adjustable Sawhorse to its premium line of FatMax™ tools and toolboxes. It has been honored with a 2004 Good Design Award for features including four independently adjustable (up to 8 inches) telescopic aluminum legs. Additionally, the sawhorse is able to carry up to 1000 pounds with an adjustable height between 32-39 inches. When combined with rubber grips on the feet, these features maximize comfort and usability, while increasing stability on a variety of terrains and jobsite layouts. Other features include an integrated pipe v-groove and two lumber slots to aid in various cutting, sanding and filing tasks. An easy-folding tray between the legs provides temporary storage of tools and accessories.

Orlando, Florida, January 13, 2005 - Stanley (NYSE: SWK) today announced the introduction of the FatMax™ Adjustable Sawhorse. The new sawhorse is the first from Stanley to possess the durability, bold styling and innovative features required to become a member of the FatMax™ line of products. Additionally, the tool was recently honored with a 2004 Good Design Award.

The newly designed sawhorse includes four strong, lightweight telescopic aluminum legs, which can be independently adjusted to various lengths up to 8 inches, for use on uneven work surfaces such as a staircase or non-uniform, rutted terrain. To further enhance user comfort and improve efficiency on the jobsite, the sawhorse is designed to carry up to 1000 pounds at several adjustable heights from 32-39 inches. Height indicators integrated into the legs of the sawhorse help users quickly and accurately identify the height of the top of the sawhorse. To help maximize stability, each leg is equipped with rubber grips on the soles.

Other features of the FatMax™ Adjustable Sawhorse that add to its functionality include an integrated pipe v-groove and two lumber slots to keep pipes and wood securely in place when cutting, sanding or filing. Anti-resistant rubber inserts on both sides of the top bar secure materials placed on top of the sawhorse.

For added convenience, the sawhorse includes a folding tray to keep tools and accessories close- at-hand while working around the sawhorse.

When the sawhorse is not in use, its space-saving design allows it to fold down to 2.5 inches for tucking it away in a tight spot where a conventional sawhorse may not fit.

“Since we launched the STANLEY® FatMax™ product line almost six years ago, consumers have come to associate it with durability, bold styling and performance-centric features,” said Ori Goren, Product Manager for Stanley Storage Products. “We are confident that the durability, styling and highly functional features we have built into this sawhorse will meet, and in many cases, surpass consumer expectations.”

The STANLEY® FatMax™ Adjustable Sawhorse is available at Lowe’s and The Home Depot and has a suggested retail price of $29.99 or $59.90 for a twin pack. For more information on the FatMax™ Adjustable Sawhorse and other STANLEY® products, please visit www.stanleyworks.com or call 1-800-STANLEY.
