How do I affix screws and nails to a wall with just one size anchor on hand? Inventor and do-it-yourselfer Jaap van der Kamp looked at the options and developed the solution, the UR'PLUG™: a small aluminum rod for anchoring into any walls around the house.
A DIY customer or a home improvement Category Manager wanting to try the UR'PLUG™ can easily order online, a bag of 40 for € 5.00; or 4 bags of 40 each for € 15.00. Shipping within The Netherlands is free.
UR'PLUG™ in action
With the UR'PLUG™ the handyman has a sure fire alternative for the nylon wall anchor. Pictures, photos and accessories are safely anchored to the wall in three easy steps.
Jaap van der Kamp, the UR'PLUG™ inventor, works with Rasser|De Haan on the international introduction of the 'paperclip for the do-it-yourselfer'. Rasser|De Haan is specialized in monetizing intellectual property and takes equity interests in inventions.
By adding this little aluminum extrusion profile to its offering the home improvement store offers the DIY customer a wall anchor that always fits. Licenses to the UR'PLUG™ are available for home improvement chains and manufacturers of wall anchors.
The UR'PLUG™ was successfully patented in The Netherlands. International patent applications are pending in the European Patent Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
