Spectaloop - Glasses Holder, A great Alternative to Glasses Chains, Eyeglass Necklaces and Lanyards


Spectaloop - Glasses Holder - is a simple, discreet gadget to keep your glasses in the most convenient place. It consists of two small magnets sitting in an attractive housing with a loop on one half to hold your glasses. The magnets allow Spectaloop to be positioned anywhere on your clothing. The magnets are strong enough for any shirt or other fabric up to 3mm thick, allowing Spectaloop to be placed anywhere that is convenient on your clothing. The strong magnets ensure that Spectaloop does not move or fall off during use.

The loop is a fine braided cord that is tough and will not wear out but is gentle on the glasses. The arm of the spectacles is easily inserted into the loop so they hang readily. They can then be quickly and easily removed again for use. Spectaloop is the ideal solution for people who frequently need their glasses, e.g. to read, but do not wear them all the time. Your glasses are always there when you want them; they don’t get lost and won’t fall out of your top pocket! They are a simple and easy way to keep your glasses close at hand. It is tidy, simple and does not involve long cords round your neck or time wasted hunting for where you last left them! They are great for sunglasses too.

Other Uses

The Spectaloop can also be used to store spare house keys, pens or radiator keys on a metal surface, like a fridge door, radiator or drawer unit. The Spectaloop is very useful when you have dropped something metal that responds to a magnet (the screw from your glasses, let's say) onto a carpet or grass. Simply take the loop half of the Spectaloop and move it over the area the screw was lost. The magnet will often draw the screw up to a distance of 5 cm. It is also useful if you have dropped a key or other metal object into a recess. Take the loop half of the Spectaloop and feed a piece of string through the loop so that the Spectaloop hangs from the string (magnet down). Simply 'fish' for the key using the string and magnet as a line and hook. It will work on objects up to 1kg in weight.

 The Idea Behind Spectaloop 

"Spectaloop was born from my need to have my glasses close at hand as my eyesight reached the point where I needed them for any close work or reading. The problem was that I kept losing them or could not remember where I had put them down last! My glasses often dropped out of my top pocket whenever I bent over and I did not always notice. I did not like the appearance of a big loop round my neck all day or the risk of catching the cord on various objects round the house or getting it tangled in my circular saw or other DIY kit when working in the garage.  

I wanted something simple, effective and unobtrusive. Spectaloop was the result. Quick and easy to fit on whatever I was wearing, easily repositioned and kept my glasses safe and close at hand with the minimum of effort."
