4You backpack with “Y” design plastic buckles

4You backpack with “Y” design plastic buckles

Individuality is the top priority for young people – a requirement that the school backpack brand 4YOU addressed 20 years ago with their 4You backpack. Since then, the manufacturer has continually updated its 4You backpack, offering on-trend individual designs, limited editions and smart functions. This includes responding to adult customers’ desires for more flexibility and comfort. The multifunctional 4You backpack Igrec also follows this trend, with its spacious and practical design for school use as well as flexibility and functionality for sports and leisure. For instance, maximum comfort is ensured by ergonomic back sections, padded straps and, on the main compartment, the secure, self-closing, simple SNAP push plastic buckles which can be operated with one hand and features the brand’s “Y” design.

More than just a plastic buckle…

The Wed’ze Reverse Freestyle backpack range from Decathlon offers skiers and snowboarders useful benefits on the slopes and when getting onto the ski lift.

School bags and their fasteners are put to the test by Stiftung Warentest

School bags and their fasteners are put to the test by Stiftung Warentest

School bags must meet a whole range of criteria to survive everyday school life: stability and how easily the bag can be closed, packed and stored also play a decisive role in addition to ergonomic wearing characteristics and a high degree of safety through the use of bright, reflective materials that can be easily seen by motorists, for example. When it comes to ease of handling, more and more high-quality school bag manufacturers rely on fastener solutions with single-hand operation from Fidlock to make it as easy as possible for the schoolchildren to open and close their bags without compromising on the security of the fastener. Fidlock fasteners – such as the MINI TURN featured on Sammies school bags – can act as a central product feature with the corresponding manufacturer branding.


Fidlock at ISPO MUNICH 2013

Between 3 and 6 February 2013, Fidlock will be presenting its current portfolio of fastener solutions at ISPO MUNICH at stand 613 in hall B6. The around 80,000 visitors to the leading international trade fair for the sports industry can look forward to a comprehensive offering of sporting goods, athletic shoes and fashionable sportswear presented by around 2,300 exhibitors from over 100 countries. And the range of application possibilities for the innovative Fidlock fasteners is just as extensive:

they can be used to close helmets, bags, rucksacks and shoes, or used on items of clothing or to attach and adjust sport accessories on tents, boats and bicycles – the multi-award-winning fastener technology based on the Fidlock principle delivers high-performance solutions for all areas and also boasts an attractive, individual design, a high degree of safety and simple, one-hand operation.

Pull follows push: following on from the successful launch of the SNAP push fastener solution, which generated great interest last year thanks to its easy opening principle with a single “push” that still ensures secure closure, Fidlock will be revealing the new SNAP pull product family for the first time at this year’s ISPO. The special feature: the pull fasteners can be opened easily with a simple “pull” and can be applied “invisibly”. This not only gives designers added value in terms of functionality, but also more flexibility in the design of the product and placement of the logo thanks to the “invisible look”.

Furthermore, Fidlock will also be showcasing some new additions to the SNAP push series, such as the design highlight SNAP push glossy, a high-quality polycarbonate fastener designed for 20 mm wide fastener straps with a sophisticated, glossy surface and rounded edges. Last but not least, the showcase will also include two new fasteners that are particularly flat: the SNAP buckle flat 30 and 40 are perfectly suited as belt fasteners, for example.

In Munich, Fidlock will also be demonstrating further application areas for the tried-and-tested fastener technologies with examples from a range of different sports.

Interested trade visitors are welcome to contact info@fidlock.com in advance to arrange an appointment.

SNAP push – the “all-round talent” for securing, aligning and adjusting

Fidlock is proud to present the SNAP push, a new development in the well-known SNAP product family. The SNAP push allows you to secure, align or adjust easily and securely.

Fidlock is proud to present the SNAP push, a new development in the well-known SNAP product family. The new fastener really is an “all-round talent”: the SNAP push allows you to secure, align or adjust easily and securely. It is especially well-suited for use on all types of bags. The SNAP push product family consists of a wide range of combinable connectors – both female and male – whose mutual combination options are virtually unlimited.

Product developers and designers can call on the ideal model and fitting for different materials and material strengths, while users benefit from the convenience and ease of use for which Fidlock products are famed: easy to open with a single “push” and quick to “snap” close – fun + function combined! In addition to its extreme user-friendliness, the SNAP push also impresses with its multi-stage fastener concept, which means it can only be opened after being released by the “push” action, so adding an extra layer of security.

Like all SNAP fasteners, the SNAP push is based on the proven Fidlock Concept, that combines the benefits of a magnetic fastener with a stable mechanical locking functionality and so offers a high degree of added value: operation with one hand, virtually automatic closing procedure and secure locking.

The SNAP push can easily be tailored to individual needs and is perfect for branding in line with your product design.
