Home of the Most Innovative Fastening System Since “Hooks and Loops” Fastener – The (EO)2® Fastener/Mounting System
The (EO)2® Fastener/Mounting System is a revolutionary patented apparatus for mounting/fastening by easily “snapping” together two “rigid” (emphasis on non-flexing) mounting components together in a quick and efficient manner. This totally scalable fastening technology will maintain the designed holding force, which could range from tens of pounds to several thousand pounds in its set or lock position. The two mating components can only be uncoupled with a very specific motion; and the release force is very low relative to the designed holding force. This totally scalable system can be designed to range in size from a couple of inches to several feet; not just in length, but also in its other dimensions, which would be appropriate for the application.
Robert C. Purcell, of Purcell and Associates, LLC said, “I was impressed with the simplicity and robustness of the design; and believes this system could have a broad market application …” Purcell has referred to the (EO)2® Mounting System as, “metal velcro”. Purcell is a former VP of GM Powertrain Group; and also led the GM Advanced Technology Vehicles Group that was responsible for the first modern electric vehicle in 1996.
The inaugural application for the (EO)2® fastener is the “SnapTop” Carrier System. It is essentially a cargo carrying system that can be used with the OEM or aftermarket roof racks of a vehicle. In doing so, it allows for a faster method of loading and unloading your car as well as creating more storage space inside the vehicle. Using waterproof/crushproof equipment cases with the system allows the owner to fill up their case with personal belongings and quickly “snap” it onto their car in rain or snow without fear of getting the contents wet. By simply setting it up on the rail, then bringing it down to make it “snap” in, and pressing the lock, the case is safe and secure on top of the car (tested in speeds in excess of 100 mph.) This is all done within seconds, without the hassle of straps, bungee cords, or nuts & bolts. To take it off simply reverse the process: unlock the mounting system and then pull the case up and off.
“The simple, durable and functional design offers many uses in the civilian and military market,” says Alan Brenner, Supply Chain Manager for BAE Defense Systems …
Fire Chief of Independence Township Fire Department – Steve Ronk – field tested the (EO)2® system said, “The (EO)2® anodized aluminum bracket offers a lightweight, durable method of securing our equipment… When the item is needed, it can easily be “unsnapped” from the (EO)2® bracket mounted in the emergency response vehicle and immediately put that equipment to use.”
The SnapTop system is perfect for people in fields where speed is of the essence; like fire fighting, search & rescue, law enforcement, military, television, film or any other field where the use of waterproof/crushproof by Pelican, Hardigg, Seahorse, SKB, etc. is standard. It combines speed, reliability and security with ease of access to mission critical situations …
It is also perfect for the average consumer. It’s a fast, reliable and rugged alternative to extending the passenger car’s luggage/cargo carrying capacity. The (EO)2® SnapTop System will free up space in the vehicle – and the owner will be able to carry more gear and fit more people! in comfort! It can do more too! The (EO)2® system does not need to stop at just your vehicle: the (EO)2® Mounting Rails can be attached vertical surfaces (or even upside-down) at your base of operations, or garage, for quick and easy organized storage. The same system can even be used on your off-road vehicle such as an ATV or Side-by-Side Utility Vehicle. For example, your camping equipment and/or rifle can go from the wall of your house to the top of your vehicle to your ATV to the wall in your cabin – same system, easy-on/easy-off, and safe & secure while traveling or in storage.
With versatility and potential to be scaled up or down, to accommodate loads ranging from the tens of pounds to the tens of thousands of pounds, the (EO)2® Mounting System has endless possibilities. Currently, the (EO)2® fastener is being considered for “ease-on/easy-off” armor applications by defense contractors; applications in Hazmat Vehicles & R.I.T. Carts by Fire Departments; stowage applications by Law Enforcement Agencies and the Department of Defense; as well as shipping applications as in dunnage for low density automotive parts & pallets for automotive seats. And under development by RayoMar – the (EO)2® Shelving System; and Signage Applications.
In summary, the (EO)2® can be adapted to accommodate a broad range of load capacities and configurations; is totally SCALABLE from inches to several feet to accommodate holding forces in the tens of pounds to several thousand pounds; and can be manufactured using a wide range of materials from aluminum, to magnesium, to stainless steel, to any number of, but not limited to, metal alloys; as well as to any number of polymers. Just use your own imagination and think of the possibilities.
The (EO)2® Fastener/Mounting System is a patent pending technology.
