I think the main negative is how do you cleanly transport this unit.  Does it come with a handle ? Case?  It has to have a nice case that techs won’t drop on hard wood floors.

I agree with Jerry; why advertise a retail price for a tool that dealers will use and not resell. If the manufacturer is making a reasonable margin selling it at dealer cost, just leave it at that. There may not have been nearly as many negative…

And so now I wonder ... could/should component mfrs themselves make their products “quick-connect”?
Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 02:01 PM)
Agree, Jerry, but as a rule we just only publish “retail” price. In this case, one reason would be because each disty would be charging a different dealer cost and we don’t want to be the ones to put it out there.

I was part of management of Tweeter’s field service network - around 100 techs at it’s peak.  We were always looking for ways to make the job of getting a 150lb TV off the shelf and turned around - or to the floor - easier……

Indeed for decades I have been using rack shelves mounted at the rear to support gear I was mounting from the front - and vice-versa.  Had always wondered what a “quick-clamp” might look like for a “rack shelf”…

The problem with advertising a $290 price is it’s not something a consumer would buy (well, some consumers will buy ANYTHING, but…).  It’s mainly for dealers. And this would be good for other industries, also. …

Not always a new install.  Practical use for removing for service, upgrading an existing system.
Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 01:01 PM)
of course, the dealer price is nowhere near $290.
Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 01:00 PM)
Yes indeed, Jerry, I brought the patent thing up. The idea is obviously easy to replicate.
