New Fidlock Technology

New Fidlock Technology

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. Often times though the Fidlock technologies and fasteners can be used for a wide variety of applications.

This newest technology falls into the second category. The Fidlock Winch is not only a new fastener but also presents an brand new technology, this is the fastener we want to present to you today.

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 fasteners use.

Secure buckles for baby equipment and innovative baby items

Secure buckles for baby equipment and innovative baby items

New parents face a huge number of challenges, from responsibilities relating to their child right through to everyday tasks where they normally use both hands – which now have to be managed with a child in tow. It often takes a while before everything can run smoothly. In these situations, all parents tend to wish at one point or another that they had a third hand. A great deal of things would be so much easier to accomplish, especially with small children around – one hand for the child, the other two for everything else.

As the dream of a third hand is out of reach, and it is not possible to manage everything with just one hand, parents need solutions such as buckles that can be operated with one hand to tackle this problem. Helpful baby equipment is therefore necessary that can make everyday tasks easier for adults – whether it’s strapping children into the car seat, putting on the baby carrier, or opening the diaper bag.
