Silent Magnetic Closures Patent Has Just Arrived

I just received this news. The silent Velcro magnetic closure we wrote about last August has been issued a patent. Congrats to designer FIGHTER DESIGN and their distribution partner Velcro USA.

Today was a big day for FIGHTER DESIGN in Austin, Texas. US Patent number 8,316,515 arrived in the mail and is now on their wall following a brief Budweiser fueled ceremony. This patent protects the Silent Magnetic Closures for Velcro® Brand Fasteners being made by FIGHTER DESIGN. The product instantly converts any Velcro® Brand Fastener into a Silent Magnetic Closure. FIGHTER DESIGN is an inventor group that collaborates with some of the greatest minds in the industry to create and deliver innovative products.


Silent Magnetic Closures for Velcro® Brand Fasteners are now available for purchase online at www.FighterD.com


Models are available to fit all military uniforms and other models are coming soon for certain backpacks, bags, and pouches. Manufacturers are being told that custom models can be made for any size and strength of hook-loop closures. Retailers are encouraged to contact Fighter Design online.

    Interesting, but watch out if you are using a magnetic compass of any kind.

      Am also interested as to whether a having the magnetic closures on pouches/pockets would mess up a magnetic compass’ accuracy?

    Genius. This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that” inventions. I need some of those for hunting and tactical training. Silent Velcro.
