Box Link® - A smarter way of holding cargo in a Pickup
There are a number of mechanisms available for securing the load placed on the bed of a pickup. However, as the market studies showed, their performance is so poor that not being able to hold the load, especially in the case of smaller objects, remains the main headache of its owners.
With this in mind, we renewed the bed of the pickup, following a lead whose inspiration was the Smart Phone, which increases its "intelligence" through adding new applications.
An clever interface for securing cargo, placed on bottom of the pan was developed, which provides a versatile clamping mechanism for smaller items. By placing it on an indentation, it does not obstruct the effective area of the available cargo bay and allows suppliers of original accessories to create new load handling applications.
Aplication of the Disruptive Innovation Methodology MDI® resulted in four patents. One patent was implemented by the car company in their new pickup platform, registering with the trademark Box-Link®.
The other three patents were licensed to key suppliers of original accessories.
