Groveley are a precision engineering company who specialise in the aerospace and military sectors. They came to us as they were using their precision engineering knowledge to develop a revolutionary big game fishing reel. They wanted our help to develop a quick release design for the spool attachment. Holding the spool on the reel securely when in use but with the ability to release and remove with one hand as desired. The design needed to ensure that the release mechanism couldn’t be accidentally triggered whilst in normal use. The chosen solution was very compact and incorporated a titanium casing with internal spring mechanism that catches the release pin from the spool.
