Speedtech International Inc.
Delivers Hook and Loop Fastening Solutions
Speedtech International Inc. has an innovative new product: an infinitely adjustable hook and loop fastening solution.The Speedwrap® U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is ideal for covering a wide variety of applications in which a customer needs to route, organize or bundle their cables and wires or larger objects, but they don’t want to inventory several different sized Cinch Straps.
In addition to its flexible sizing, the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ features a unique self-engaging fastening system with both hook and loop on the same surface. While consumers are just getting accustomed to back-to-back hook and loop cable ties where the hook material is bonded to the loop material, back-to-back, the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is a simple, yet highly innovative solution.
Speedtech International’s lead designer, Chris Karnowski explains why this fastening solution was designed.
“By utilizing a hook loop tape where the hook & loop is on the same side, it adheres to itself. You can wrap the hook loop tape around an object, insert it through the buckle, then pull the slack towards you for a cinching and secure hold. No sew or welds to deal with, fully adjustable throughout its entire length. The value of the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is you can create a wide variety of strap lengths to fit your specific application,” said Karnowski.
Sold on a user friendly 15 foot “roll” configuration, the consumer simply measures the required length of material and cuts it to length. As a third step, the user inserts the hook and loop strap through one of the included buckles, cinching the strap down and then laps the strap onto itself for a secure hold.
Some of Speedtech’s Maintenance Repair and Operations (MRO) Distributors, like McMaster-Carr Supply Company, add to why the product fills a void in the hook and loop fastening category. Marketed as a single component closure system, it offers a truly unique alternative to traditional two component hook and loop closures.
McMaster-Carr is supplying the U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ which includes fifteen feet per roll and ten buckles. The fastening solution reduces customer inventory by covering a wide range of applications.
In addition to these benefits, users can create other straps from this kit which are easy to use and reuse and are soft against cables, wires and CAT-5 cabling. The U-BUNDLE/U-BUCKLE KIT™ is an environmentally friendly product since there is no waste and it can be reused time after time.
