Touch Scale Makes the Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Heys USA, leading travel goods manufacturer and inventor of "The World’s Lightest Carry-On" announces "The World’s First Digital Touch Scale for Luggage."

Weston, FL, September 19, 2011 --( Heys USA Group’s Touch Scale is a patent-pending, ergonomically-designed, easy-to-use, touch screen technology scale that will help travelers avoid excess baggage fees. This perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays is a great selling travel accessory from the leaders in lightweight, hard side luggage manufacturing. Touch Scale comes to market after the scientific development process tapped into all the latest technology. “It all began with medical consultants advising us on proper lifting techniques when weighing luggage,” noted Harry Sheikh, Heys USA Group President/CEO. “Our expert design team took that information and translated it into the intelligent design of a tiny luggage scale that incorporates the latest touch screen technology into a product that fits conveniently into the palm of your hand… and saves you money!”

“When consumers use this scale along with proper lifting techniques,” Sheikh added, “they will save money on excess baggage fees and experience less back strain when weighing their luggage. The elegant low profile form of Touch Scale is ergonomically-designed to fit comfortably in one hand, or be held with both hands to weigh heavier bags,” Sheikh continued. “This is a ‘must-have’ tool for every airline traveler.”

Touch Scale also features a fast weight auto-lock that changes the readout color from blue to red when weight of the bag has been determined. The rubber-coated hook protects luggage or any other items being weighed. Touch Scale has a simple LB/KG conversion for use all around the globe. And there is a 60-second auto shut-off to save battery life.
