THE NU-D STORY
Like many average guys, Chris Bransgrove is a keen boatie and a regular trailer user. After once-too-often struggling with a fiddly conventional shackle, while feeling the heat of holding up the boat ramp queue, he decided there had to be a better way. Surely it was possible to make robust towing and boat safety shackles that are easily undone and tightened without tools? Having seen plenty of others caught in similar situations, Chris decided to do everyone a favour and get his thinking cap on.
After developing an early prototype, Chris teamed up with fellow boat owner, Alistair Craig. Together they ensured the NU-D towing shackle was refined, tested and patented. Positive feedback flooded in from early users, including some with arthritic hands and others who live in cold climates requiring gloves. Chris and Alistair soon realised they’d achieved their goal. They’d developed a shackle that will save time and prevent stress for countless boaties, caravanners, farmers and DIY trailer haulers.
Now NU-D has been launched to the world as a product that saves time, frustration and quite a bit of swearing. Chris and Alistair invite you to give it a whirl. Once you’ve tried NU-D, there’ll be no turning back.
