With over 30 years experience working as a carpenter & builder, the inventor of Flip’N’Grip®, Neil Ewins, felt a need for dramatic improvement in the way traditional tool belts and pouches were worn and fitted.
"Uncomfortable industry standard tool belts with their fixed pouches meant I was constantly carrying more weight than necessary, putting unnecessary strain on my back and shoulders” says Neil, a self-employed Sydney based carpenter.
It was inspired by this frustration (and one too many trips to the chiropractor) that this NSW tradie turned entrepreneur came up with his idea for the ProChoice Flip’N’Grip® tool belt system.
"Different tasks require different sets of tools, so I thought to myself, I need to be able to adjust my tool belt & pouches to suit the task at hand."
Teaming up with long-time friend, designer Simon Harris, the two put their heads together to develop a comfortable and lightweight utility belt that was not only flexible in its design, but also practical in its use with their specifically designed pouches.
The result - The unique and patented Flip’N’Grip® pouch attachment system. (Where the product gets its name). The Flip’N’Grip® system makes it easy to attach, remove, and reposition pouches without having to remove your tool belt, meaning you only ever wear what you need.
Now when Neil switches tasks he can switch his tool set up just as easily, increasing productivity and reducing the back strain caused by wearing unnecessary tools.
