The designers and product developers at Fidlock are constantly working on new fasteners, buckles and new technolgies. Thanks to their tireless efforts, Fidlock has a huge selection of fasteners and technologies that customers can choose from. Sometimes the buckle or the technology is so specific it is made for one application, such as the Fidlock Helmet Buckles.

The Fidlock Winch combines the infamous magnetic-mechanical Fidlock concept with that of a ratchet. This unique combination allows the user to not only use the Fidlock Winch to open and close their applications but also to adjust them. Thanks to this combination the fields of application are endless ranging from shoes, to vests, to helmets, orthopaedic aids to even blinds.

As there are a sheer endless amount of application suggestions, we cannot possibly cover them all, which is why we would like to present a small selection to give you an idea of where we would envision this fastners use.

The SNAP cube lock is the ideal solution for individual fastenings and heavy loads – from a mobile phone on a bicycle to a TV on the wall.

The SNAP cube lock has been developed to provide products with a mount for the secure attachment of objects. It could be a cycle computer or iPhone on a bike’s handlebars, tools on a belt, a picture or even a TV on the wall. It also offers a simple and dependable solution for fixing bicycles and sports equipment such as canoes in a safe storage location.

What is special about the cube lock. One or more fasteners can be used, depending on the weight of the items to be attached. The holding force needed for large, small, heavy or light objects can be achieved by combing the requisite number of cube locks.
