High Gear Specialties Unveils Tech-Gripper
August 20, 2014

Winter Garden, Fl., Aug 20, 2014 – High Gear Specialties, known for its Techmounts brand of mounting systems and accessories, has collaborated with several of their industry partners to develop Tech-Gripper, a unique universal personal device holder that transcends transportation markets worldwide. “The product was born out of the massive adoption of smart phones as personal computers” stated Philip Rispoli, VP Business Development at the high-tech design and manufacturer. Rispoli continued, “Cell phones are responsible for handing everything from voice, email, messaging, music, GPS navigation, pictures, movies, search and almost anything else you can think of and have become a necessity in everyday life for all age groups and demographics. The need to carry and wear your device where ever you go is growing exponentially”.

Techmounts has built a reputation in the motorcycle and marine markets for designing American made mounting systems for GPS, Cell Phones, note pads, iPods etc. The company’s products are designed in-house and manufactured at the company’s facility in Orlando Florida. The company boasts an array of precision Mazak Bar Feed Turning Centers and manufactures all their components out of high grade Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Composite materials. Up until now the company has concentrated on making OEM base mounts as well as retail mount components that are highly integrated with every motorcycle manufactured today. The company has partnered with 3rd party cradle companies as well as smart phone case manufacturers and integrated the Techmount mounting solutions to each cradle, case manufacturer or other.

“We see a significant change in the market” stated Mike Lee, Founder and Chief Designer at Techmounts. “In the past we enabled any cradle or case manufacture to bolt up to our stylish and functional mounting systems and it worked. We continue to do that with our new 4G line of base mounting systems. However, today there is a shift where we see a much broader need for a secure, universal personal device holder. A device holder simple and easy enough to use that it can enable the market quicker and ease the decision making process for retail buyers worldwide. One that is secure has a small form factor and can set itself apart from a sea of lower quality plastic copy-cats. One can fit any smart phone or note-style smart phone device with or without any manufacturer’s case. Tech-Gripper was designed to meet those requirements”.

In addition to Tech-Gripper being a universal personal device holder, the product was also designed with the ability for OEM’s, retailers, clubs and groups to insert a customized logo; branding the product. This makes the Tech-Gripper when not in use a marketing tool for a client’s brand. No other personal device holder has that thoughtful built in capability. This is just one more reason why Techmounts rises to the top of OEM’s and retailers worldwide.
