is a knotless lace fastening device which is designed for use on articles such as footwear, bags and clothing where secure fastening is required. This idea of an efficient lace fastener
which is flexible
and easy to use started in late 2003 with 12 prototypes made and many hours of research and development invested to create this invention. During the development stage, its use by people with learning or physical disabilities was considered. The most common use of this device will be as a shoelace fastener, as it allows for easy adjustment of the shoelaces to be rapidly tightened or loosened with efficient gripping capability. Users who will find it most advantageous are people with learning or physical disabilities, the elderly and young children.
