Using the traditional snap hooks that are on all animal leashes and handbags can often bring pain and difficulty. However, thanks to this new cutting-edge design, consumers will struggle no more. The MagneClip® as its name suggests, uses the power of magnetism instead of a spring to close the clasp. Simply press gently on the hooks lever-like opening, attach it to the item or animal, and the closure instantly and gently closes without needing to bend your thumb or violent snapping.
MagneClip® was first conceived after the inventor, Lucy A. Mitchell, painfully broke her nail while using a traditional compression spring snap hook. This got her thinking about all the downfalls of the traditional design.
First, traditional clasps have a slide bolt that requires the user to bend all three joints in the thumb simultaneously, while also holding on to the body of the clasp. This makes the latch difficult to use.
Second, a slide bolt requires more force to open the further it is opened. Similar to the resistance created when a bow and arrow is fully open, if the user's thumb slips it will slam the slide bolt closed, injuring the operator.
Third, when the slide bolt is closed there is little force keeping it closed so it can rattle loose as the spring weakens over time. Magnets never lose their strength.
Fourth, when used on animals with long fur, traditional devices can become entangled in the hair, creating both pain and frustration. Sand can also get stuck in the spring jamming the slide bolt.
The MagneClip® also works well if the user fumbles for the D hook on the animal's collar. Because it takes very little force to hold open, it eliminates the painful skin depressions that traditional snap hooks cause. In addition, MagneClip® eliminates snap-back injury frequently suffered by young children and the elderly.
With a wide variety of uses, these hooks work well for therapy dogs, backpacks, guide dogs, farmers, animal trainers, horse handlers, handbags, luggage, pack dog leashes, you name it, they bring benefit to many individuals. Any person that has paid for a manicure will appreciate not having it ruined by traditional clasps.
Currently MagneClip Ltd. is looking for $10,000 in donations, which will help the company increase stock on hand and shorten delivery times. MagneClip® leashes are newly available in two stores in Colorado and have recently gained the interest of a television home shopping network, and a major online retailer. When MagneClip Ltd, reaches their donation goal they will secure overseas patents and will be able to fund future innovations such as larger hooks and locking features.
