Re-String It, which is used to re-thread everything from drawstring pants to hooded sweatshirts, has entered into an agreement with Play It Again Sports, a national franchise that buys and sells quality new and used sports and fitness equipment. After selling out their initial supply, Re-String It has new formal sales agreements with over 100 Play It Again Sports franchises across the United States.

Instead of losing the entire value because you have to throw it out, you can now use Re-String It to repair the item for sale or use.

CWA Enterprises is proud to announce its first multi-franchise distribution agreement with 30% of the international Play It Again Sports (PIAS) franchise stores for sale of its product Re-String It. Play It Again Sports has a franchise operation with stores across the United States and Canada. The owners of each store buy and sell quality new and used sports and fitness equipment. Re-String It is an innovative tool that allows people to re-thread almost anything, though it was originally designed for re-threading the drawstring through sweatpants.

Bill Phillips is a Play It Again Sports store owner in Los Alamitos, CA who first discovered Chad’s product and sold 24 units almost immediately. “I knew this product would be a perfect fit for a store that finds a second life for so many items. Occasionally you’ll want to sell or buy a piece of equipment or sports clothing that is missing a thread or strand of some kind,” said Chad. “Instead of losing the entire value because you have to throw it out, you can now use Re-String It to repair the item for sale or use.”

Bill contacted the corporate headquarters of Play It Again Sports, to let them know how popular Re-String It had been in his store. He wanted the other franchise owners to have a chance to sell just as many, if not more. Chad was then invited to the PIAS Bi Annual Franchisee Show, where Re-String It was purchased by 30% of their franchise locations.

“Product has shipped and I am very optimistic about the future between Re-String It and PIAS,” said Chad. “The PIAS business model promotes selling of new and used equipment. Re-String It saves any equipment with drawstrings, and a majority of athletes clothing has drawstrings. As the relationship between PIAS and Re-String It grows, I hope to one day have all 375 stores between the USA and Canada selling my invention.”

Re-String It uses a 4-millimeter tube with an 18 gauge wire and uses aluminum material, which means it won’t rust and the adjustable tip saves users from having to tie the drawstring into a knot before Re-String It loops the cord back through the pants. At the 2012 Invention & New Product Exposition (INPEX) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Chad was awarded a gold medal for the Re-String It product.
