Designed to protect young children and pets from serious burns, the DAIO is a hair appliance organiser with a clever universal bracket.

The DAIO protects against fire dangers by providing two cylindrical appliance holders, a bit like two tiny buckets, made of high-quality silicone that will sustain a constant temperature of 300˚C for up to three weeks. These two receptacles are located side-by-side in a small oblong heat-resistant plastic plate that is attached to a bracket for fixing to surfaces in the home or hair salon.

Out of the box, the DAIO can be quickly and easily mounted to any horizontal surface around the user’s home, such as a table, shelf or mantelpiece. Alternatively, the bracket can be easily disengaged from the DAIO chassis and turned 900 so that the DAIO can be mounted on any vertical surface, such as a drawer front, cupboard door or radiator. The bracket can also be removed completely for mounting the DAIO permanently to a fixed vertical surface such as an interior wall or the side of a cabinet or wardrobe. The bracket fixes to any surface up to 33mm in width.

This bracket was originally designed to be attached to the DAIO’s receptacle-holding plate with a single self-clinching fastener installed from the inside of the bracket. However, designer and founder of klippsafe product innovation Simon Klippel on behalf of AOK-Design UK, identified that prolonged use of the bracket with this type of fastening could make it vulnerable to working loose.

Klippel consequently discussed the details at length with the TR Fastenings team and after reviewing several options, devised and produced production details for a more robust solution.

To ensure the bracket achieves long-lasting rigidity, the fastening would either have to be installed from the outside or, because of inadequate access for a press, installed from the inside in two halves. The latter solution was chosen, using a standard countersunk screw and a Klipp Nut.

TR Fastenings was able to interpret the client’s requirements, agree the alternative technical solution, and manufacture it in sufficient quantities within weeks – and as well as being more robust, it saved the client costs.
