It may look like a starfighter from the next Star Wars movie but it is in fact some far less devastating.
Designed and manufactured in New Zealand by Fastmount, the TC-06 is the first clip set released in the new Textile Range
The clip created in response to demand for a purpose built solution for mounting interior and exterior furnishings on superyachts.
Exterior cushions on superyachts have it hard – they are subject to wind, storms, salt and sun. Add to that their constant removal and replacement according to cleaning schedules, owner arrival and departure and protection, it becomes a time-consuming task for the crew as they battle with push studs, hook and loop strips, or rope tracks.
When the cushions are set out again, they need to be checked for perfect placement, readjusted and replaced. At high speeds they can lift, and when owners sit on them they can slide and distort.
The TC-06 has been designed with these conditions in mind, purpose built for day bed mattresses, seat cushions, back rests and bases. With the use of TC-06 clips, the furnishing can be locked into place securely, and removed rapidly with the click of a button. The result is perfect alignment, every time.
Stitched by the upholsterer to the base of the cushion, the TC-F6 is a plastic tri-sided clip that locks into the male to hold the cushion securely in place. The male TC-M6 is a low profile 20mm diameter plastic stud, which screws into the fiberglass, timber or metal deck moulding.
The user can simply align, push and click to lock the cushion into place. To combat large, exposed cushions coming adrift in strong winds, the clip incorporates a mechanical locking system, requiring the user to ‘unlock’ the female clip. It is unlocked by sliding the TC-R6 removal tool or a finger under the cushion to disengage one of the three buttons.
The new TC-06 clip set can be purchased from any one of Fastmount’s global network of distributors.
