NEW YORK - March 14, 2014 - PRLog -- NEW YORK, NY – March 14, 2014 – Last July 2013, Bernard Jacovitz, the President of Earthquake Resistant Building Construction, Inc. (ERBC, Inc.) a Delray Beach, FL product/concept design company, was interviewed by Miami’s CBS TV ( affiliate and the Florida Sun Sentinel concerning his just approved patent for the JacLockTM Screw and JacLockTM Screwdriver locking system.  At the time of the interviews, Mr. Jacovitz’s company, ERBC, Inc., was at an infant stage of developing a prototype for his newly patented JacLockTMScrew and Screwdriver. The invention, unlike existing screw and screwdrivers, completely eliminates the unnerving possibility of a screwdriver slipping off a screw during insertion and/or removal.  The added benefit of the invention is it increases the torque applied during insertion and removal of the screw.  The unique, yet simple, capability of this new enabling technology offers the potential for industry disruptive opportunities for manufacturers and consumers alike.  ERBC, Inc. after nearly nine months of product development and refinements to the JacLockTM concept, recently completed three prototype iterations of the invention.

In the first iteration, shortly after the CBS TV interview, ERBC developed sophisticated digital drawings of the invention to allow for the production of a 3D prototype of the JacLockTM Screw, Screwdriver and Bit.  Once the 3D plastic prototypes were created and followed by a subsequent series of analyses performed on the 3D version, ERBC moved to phases two and three of prototype development.  The last two prototype phases involved CNC Milled Steel production.  Now that the steel working prototypes have been developed, ERBC is moving toward the next stage of product development, the testing phase.

The key testing phase will require the help of an outside company or body to perform the testing.  ERBC intends, after the completion of its own in-house testing, to initiate a series of test comparisons with major competing screws, e.g., Phillips, Hex, Torx, etc.  The test comparison will determine whether the JacLock concept provides for a true locking mechanism that translates into a measurably increased level of torque over the major screw competitors.  If, as expected, the statistical testing results prove the validity of the JacLockTM concept, industry and consumers will be flocking to ERBC’s newest product.

The new design will appeal to both manufacturers and consumers alike.  Manufacturers will quickly see the advantages of using the new system, since the assembly of products with the new screw/ screwdriver locking system will improve efficiency and costs.  Consumers will also find the new system a tremendous improvement over existing screws and screwdrivers.  Best of all, the new JacLockTM Screw and Screwdriver does not result in an increase in the cost of the production of the screw and the screwdriver.

Earthquake Resistant Building Construction Inc., ( the owner of Mr. Jacovitz’s other revolutionary patented JacBloxTM Construction Framing System that makes homes safer from earthquakes and hurricanes and more energy efficient, is currently seeking screw manufacturers to help test the product against competing screws.
