Revolutionary X-Latch solves the problem of unexpectedly opening hatches and removes the need for latch readjustment over time. Patented X-Latch innovation combines the best qualities of AISI316- and rubber latches in one product. The beautiful AISI316 cover protects the rubber part from UV and mechanical wear and tear whereas the rubber part gives the latch excellent usability. The X-Latch closes tightly and will not open up nor make noise even in rough boating. The product has been designed to be fully self-adjusting with a very long lifetime.
Tietoset also showcases their new design for a flagpole holder at METSTRADE. The key problem with flagpole holders has been the noise that they create while boating. Also, the lifetime of the flagpole holder has been quite short due to the metal-to-metal contact. The new design of the flagpole holder solves these problems. The rubber cover on the inside prevents metal-to-metal encounter making the product noise-free also prolonging the lifetime of the product.
Tietoset manufactures and designs boat components and products for their marine clients as well as for furniture clients. Tietoset works together with the boat manufacturers to design and make better components and products that produce more value for the final product and for the end-client.
