Our fasteners and products are all based on the FIDLOCK concept – an ingenious invention of a musician who wanted to optimize his cello bow holder. He recognized that the technology of the single-handed bow holder has a lot of potential for fasteners of any kind. As a result, the musician became an inventor with heart and soul, and the initial idea became a vision of turning the moment of opening and closing into an intuitive and safe experience for users worldwide. Therefore, we are excited to announce that the jury has rewarded the inventive spirit of Joachim Fiedler and his team by choosing him as one of the four finalists in the category for small and medium-sized enterprises of the European Inventor Award 2022!

We are very proud to be nominated and eagerly looking forward to the jury’s decision on June 21st 2022, 12 CEST. Keep your fingers crossed for Joachim Fiedler and FIDLOCK!
