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.

helmet buckles for Quiksilver and Roxy helmets

Quiksilver and Roxy: Helmet buckles for the most fun on the slopes

Skiers and snowboarders know the problem: When putting on and taking off equipment, gloves must normally be removed to reach all the straps, helmet buckles or even the ties. This makes handling inconvenient – particularly at cold temperatures. Quiksilver, the manufacturer of high-quality clothing, winter sports equipment, footwear and accessories, and Quiksilver’s young women’s fashion label Roxy offer snowboard helmets that help ensure comfort and safety for the boarding scene and remove the need for inconvenient putting-on and taking-off of gloves. This means that Quiksilver Axis and the Roxy Muse feature a luxury chin strap with a Fidlock buckle. The helmet buckles with the SNAP helmet buckle are easy to operate even with gloves on, are self-closing, and prevent the skin being pinched in the process.

Timbuk2 Messenger bag

Magnetic-mechanical fasteners for bags – Timbuk2 messenger bag

Timbuk2 bags enjoy cult status because the manufacturer in San Francisco fully understood the needs of his customers at the end of the 1990s, namely bike couriers, and tailored his first bags perfectly for the market: conscious design with high quality and functionality together with well thought-out details. Even today, Timbuk2 understands how important it is to look after this cult status, keep an eye on trends and set new standards. Messenger bags are the flagship product of the brand and Timbuk2 offers these in different variants for the most varied requirements, such as the Especial Cycling messenger bag for die-hard cyclists or urban commuters. The feature list of this top product is extensive: in a nutshell, the messenger bag is robust and waterproof, reliable and comfortable to use.

The manufacturer also placed high demands on the fasteners for bags of Timbuk2, so that they underline the product concept perfectly and provide customers with added safety and wearer comfort: this is why the fasteners for bags on the messenger bag use a SNAP buckle 20. It closes magnetically as if by itself and can easily be opened by sliding at the side with one hand, even with gloves on. This ensures that the other hand is free for your own safety or for any other actions, whether on or off the bike.
