BIG TURN, CATCH ALL / Magnet buckle

BIG TURN, CATCH ALL
BIG TURN, CATCH ALL

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

„Big Turn“ and „Catch All“ represent a new patented generation of magnetic buckles produced by FIDLOCK GmbH, Berlin.
The idea is simple, but clever: strong Neodym magnets in the female and male parts of the buckle are twisted from attraction to repulsion.

The closures opens by a single hand – even a childs hand with gloves.

When closing, the knob turns back like driven from ghost hand, and the magnets close the buckle.

An additional mechanical closure prepare “Big Turn” and “Catch All” for the field test.

FIDLOCK buckles are faszinating by elegant haptic, safety, simplicity and fun.
