We make a conscious effort to respect the environment and pay it forward. We believe in building lasting client relationships by engaging in good business ethics. We stand behind our product and want our clients to benefit from the success of Shadowclip.
Husband and wife Ben and Karen Rattelade came up with the idea for Shadowclip just before the Christmas of 2011. Having worked in the eyeglass business for over 30 years, Ben had seen his fair share of clip-on type products; however, nothing seemed suitable for his clients' needs. Most existing products proved to be overly complex and too inconvenient to catch on with prospective wearers.
Following a sports injury, Ben opted to spend less time on his feet. It was at this point that he made the decision to explore a different avenue for his passion. In conjunction with an industrial designer, Ben brainstormed ideas for the next 2 years for what would eventually result in their innovative keyhole design. This technology allows the essential components to connect together in a better way. It is through this concept that the Shadowclip vision was born.
Creating the tools and perfecting the process for maximum efficiency and consistent results would take more time. The resulting "hole punch" is capable of producing the keyhole pattern required for completion.
The exciting thing about the Shadowclip system is that as its technology continues to evolve, our team will be able to provide even more options for customizing existing frames.
We currently offer the original Shadowclip tool as well as a new slimmer version with a key hole that is 1/3 the size of the original; it's simply a matter of personal preference.
