The gripping birth of a new technology
The GECKSKIN® technology was born out of a lab at the University of Massachusetts and is a leading-edge grip and release technology with unprecedented repeatability and freedom from sticky damage to surfaces.
GECKSKIN® products can be made from a variety of materials. The compelling characteristic of a GeckSkin® product is its load-bearing Grip & Peel™ capability without surface damage.
GECKSKIN® technology achieves weight-bearing grip and release through a weight distribution and force management system. It is not a single material, adhesive or polymer and there are no nano or micro structures! The result is ground-breaking capability for an extensive variety of materials, surfaces, and market opportunities.

GeckSkin® products are applicable in multiple industries that require repeated grip and release, carry loads and do not damage surfaces.
Conveyor belts, straps, and pick-and-place are just a few of the industrial applications in a warehouse or manufacturing floor where the GECKSKIN® is a game changing technology. A conveyor belt can be unlocked for cleaning; pick-and-place machines don’t need sticky tapes and suction cups; and wasteful single-use plastic straps around pallets can be replaced by reusable straps with GECK on GECK™ closures. The GECKSKIN® technology’s grip and release capability brings new performance and methods to move products through the supply chain.
Machine operators require easy access to tools, supplies and instructions that have to be moved repeatedly around on metal, painted dry wall, painted cinderblock, and other surfaces. GECKSKIN® devices provide grip and release on a variety of surfaces, without surface damage, and can hold tools and labels. GRIPTILE™ products are used as labels—machinists clean them with IPA when they need to write new instructions, and they can easily store a database of information to pull out and reuse when needed. GRIPHOOK™ products hold tools and are easily moved to best fit operator needs.
Holding instruments on a wall to take a measurement, putting up a temporary wall, and holding tools to do a job—construction sites have innumerable activities requiring GRIP & PEEL™ on a variety of surfaces for a period of time.
Instead of tapes, glues, clips, rope and rubber bands for packaging, GECK on GECK™ closures provide repeated, load-bearing, adhesive-and surface damage-free, grip, seal and release—and you don’t have to line up tiny ridges.
GECK on GECK™ closures for jackets, bags, under-garments and shirts are thin, silent and easy. With strong shear force and easy release, they offer a user experience unlike any other closure and can be made from various fabrics.
Window treatments, backsplashes, floor tiles and lighting are are bolted, glued and screwed into a wall no longer need to be fixed and whose removal causes damage. GeckSkin® allows for damage-free change and removal.
The GECKSKIN® portfolio of high utility products for multiple applications: includes cord management, lighting, bathroom and kitchen items, and hanging anything on any surface.

The BOW™ joiner is a one of kind device. Today, you can’t Grip say, an LED light onto the wall without a permanent adhesive that’ll damage the wall. That’s where the BOW comes in. It does the peeling for you. Have a look. Here is an LED Puck light on a wall. It’s on the wall and you can pull it off the wall—the BOW does the peeling for you.
We wanted our first retail outlet to be where the technology was invented: UMass Amherst. Our products are on sale in the campus store centrally located in the student union. We have an array of products, included printed products with the famous UMass “Power U”.
A variation of the BOW™, the ZBOW™ is designed to attach permanently to the object on one side while still possessing our Grip & Peel™ capability on the wall side. Put a tissue box exactly where it’s convenient: by the front door and move it to where it’s needed any time you want.
