Capstone Industries Reports Strong Interest and Industry Recognition for Its Lighting Products at the 2011 International Home and Housewares Show

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Capstone Industries Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CHDT Corporation (OTCBB: CHDO), returned from the 2011 International Home and Housewares Show with product accolades as well as strong interest from retailers and distributors for its products. The Company successfully launched its eBook-Lite and eReader-Lite which solve the problem of the many eReaders that cannot be read in poorly lit areas. The products both come with three LED bulbs and a sturdy, spring-activated E-grip. 

The Eco-i-Lite continues to gain traction with the mini, midi, and full-sized designs. The product was launched in 2008 featuring the first-to-market, induction charging system for a power failure light. The induction charging base has no metal contacts. Instead, it sends energy through an inductive coupling to the handheld light which stores the energy in the batteries. The system allows the product to come in and out of the base effortlessly. The product also uses Lithium-ion batteries and LED bulbs which never need to be replaced and last up to seven hours when fully charged. The lights also have a nightlight feature and are water resistant. 

The Company also successfully launched, for the first time, the mini and full-sized C-Lites, the wireless motion sensor light. The products feature LED bulbs and a motion sensor with 13 feet and 90 to 120 degrees of detection area. This wireless safety and security light is the solution for illuminating any area of the home or garage without wiring or switches. The unique, eye-shaped head swivels, allowing you to focus the light exactly where it's needed. 

Capstone was runner up in the 2011 Housewares Design Awards Lighting, Home Décor and Outdoor Décor Category with its new eBook-Lite adjustable light for eReaders. Another Capstone product to receive recognition was the new Pathway Lights® Retro Taskbright, selected in pink for the Pantone ColorWatch Display, a program sponsored by Pantone® that recognizes the newest trends in color.

The positive response from the many retailers and distributors attending the show further validates the Company's direction in lighting products. Reid Goldstein stated, "While we were cautiously optimistic coming into the show, we are leaving with a great number of opportunities with both existing and new retail accounts."
