The Original Shockloc is an Australian family business owned & operated by brothers Brad & Shaun in the Shoalhaven region on the NSW south coast.
The company was born from the need for an easier, safer & quicker way to secure loose items and be able to release them just as quickly & without any fuss. Frustrated with complicated knots, zip ties and poor quality occy straps that were never quite the right length, the pair decided to start their own business creating easy-to-use adjustable ties.
After investing in a 3D printer, the pair began to prototype designs in their own backyard for a quality product that balanced strength with safety and ease of use. Shaun’s 20 years of experience as a toolmaker and design engineer were invaluable as the pair tested in excess of 100 prototypes over the course of a year.
Eventually, the pair were successful in creating a product that suited the needs of the consumer, and have since created a range of ties in various lengths for a range of different needs from tarp ties, to a paddle leash and even a camping clothesline.
Shockloc will be exhibiting at the 2019 Newcastle Outdoor Adventure & Motoring expo site OA344
