After developing a working prototype
and filing for patent protection, an agreement was reached with a
licensee to market the product. However, after almost a year of
working with their manufacturer to make a final prototype, it became
clear that the LashLockTM would need to be launched and
the final prototype developed independently.
Corlear North America Inc. was formed
and today the LashLockTM is manufactured for Corlear in
Taiwan by an established lock maker. Covered by two US patents as
European patents, the LashLockTM is
outlets across North America and Europe.
The largest market is the canoe and kayak market but the uses are
endless. I use the product every day from tying my lawnmower to a
trailer, as a clamp in my shop or securing my beer cooler to
the park bench when I'm out sailing. We are growing steadily and are looking for new
uses and new markets. If you have suggestions, complaints, or comments
on marketing or promotion, I would be happy to discuss any ideas.
And of course I appreciate your purchase and use of my product!
Keep your toys secured and have fun!
