Canadian company launches product to keep electrical cords securely together

BRAMPTON, Ontario - Dec. 17, 2015 - PRLog -- BRAMPTON, ON (December 1, 2015) – Blair Brown, a Canadian entrepreneur and inventor, was frustrated by his electrical cords continually becoming separated and unplugged. It’s a hassle and it’s a safety concern. So he invented The Gripper™, a patented two-piece device that snaps together around cords in seconds, designed to keep the cord coupling securely in place.

When electrical cords and extension cords separate, there is a risk of electrical shorts, blown fuses and cord damage, all potentially leading to fires and injury. The Gripper solves this problem. It has two simple L-shaped parts that are made from flexible, durable plastic. They slide and snap together to wrap around
cords of any size and shape.

“I’m really excited to see my invention helping out other people,” says Brown. “It came from a simple idea,
and if it can save others time and money while keeping them safe, then I’ve done my job.”

Small and compact, the Gripper fits in pockets, toolboxes, glove boxes, gardening bins and more. Its reusable, and each half of The Gripper can be used as a zip tie or cable tie.

The time saved from having to deal with uncoupled cords is huge. And it saves users money on having to repair and replace faulty cords.

The Gripper can:

• Conveniently hold electrical cords together to prevent separation, electrical shorts and fires.
• Eliminates time wasted by having to reconnect cords repeatedly
• Act as a universal coupling device
• Make managing cords easy – no more tying cords into damaging knots
• Used as a hook to hang safety lights at work sites, or temporarily hold tools to keep them handy
• And more!

Made in Canada, the Gripper is available online, starting at CDN $5.00 for one package of three. It comes in two standard colours (orange & black) and variety of custom colours available for larger orders.
