The Toe Tethr Tale

I got the idea for creating some sort of flip-flop restraint in 2009 or there about. I was boating, and we had dry docked at a sandbar. When we were leaving I was tasked with pushing us out. Upon doing so, and jumping into the boat, I ended up losing one of my flip-flops. I was not pleased. Another light bulb moment came a year or two later when I was cycling. I was just out for a casual jaunt around the lake. During one push, my flip-flop slipped from the pedal, and flew from my foot. I did not crash, thankfully, but could have very easily. After that incident I got to work on trying to come up with something quick, and easy, that would fix this issue. After months of research, armed with some crude drawings and an idea, I filed for a patent in 2013. The process was long, my designs were basic, but I am proof that if you keep pushing forward, and believe in your product, you will succeed. My patent was granted in 2018 (Patent: 10,070,684).

Please enjoy our products, and if you have any questions let us know! 

 

Thank you!
